ever separate us from Christ’s love? Does it mean He no longer loves us if we
have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, if we are hungry, if we are cold
or in danger, threatened with death? (Even the Scriptures say, “For your sake
we are killed every day; we are being slaughtered like sheep.” Psalm 44:22)
No, despite all
these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loves us.
True peace starts

about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need and
thank Him for all He has done. If you do this, you will experience God’s peace,
which is far more wonderful than the human mind can understand. His peace will
guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.
I have abundant life
because of my relationship with God,
because of my circumstances.
I (Jesus) am the gate. Those who come in through me will be saved. Wherever
they go, they will find green pastures. The thief’s purpose is to steal, kill
and destroy. My purpose is to give life in all its fullness.

words in our spiritual vocabulary.
I can trust my God.
He does for me what I cannot do on my own.

God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil.
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers,
against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the
spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.

Chronicles 28:9 (NASB)
“As for you, my
son Solomon, know the God of your father, and serve Him with your whole heart
and a willing mind; for the LORDsearches all hearts, and understands every intent
of the thoughts. If you seek Him, He will let you find Him; but if you forsake
Him, He will reject you forever.”
you love me, you will keep my commandments. I will ask the Father, and He will
give you another Helper, that He may be with you forever; that is the Spirit of
truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it does not see Him or know Him,
because He abides with you and will be in you.
I am no longer who I
I am becoming who my God created me to be.
Peter 1:21-23 (NLT)
you have come to trust in God. And because God raised Christ from the dead and
gave Him great glory, your faith and hope can be confidently placed in God. Now
you can have sincere love for each other as brothers and sisters because you
were cleansed from your sins when you accepted the truth of the Good News. So
see to it that you really do love each other intensely with all your hearts.

40 (NASB) A Psalm of David
I waited patiently for the LORD; and He
inclined to me and heard my cry.
He brought me up

And He set my
feet upon a rock making my footsteps firm.
He put a new

God has created me;

the LORDyour God with all your
heart, and with all your soul, and with all of your mind.’This is the great and foremost
commandment. The second is like it, ‘You
shall love your neighbor as yourself.’On these two commandments depend the
whole Law and the Prophets.”
God disciplines those
He loves and who love Him.
He works all things
out for good, even my poor choices.
In the same way
the Spirit also helps us in our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we
should, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groaning’s deep for words;
and He who searches our hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He
intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.
And we know that
God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those
who are called according to His purpose.
