(King James Version)
12 Blessed is the man that endureth temptation:for when he is tried, he shall receivethe crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.
13 Let no man say when he is tempted,I am tempted of God: for
God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man:
14 But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.
Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.
16 Do not err, my beloved
17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights,with whom is no variableness,
neither shadow of turning
2 Chronicles 7:14
"If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek
my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land."
Be still, and know that I am God...
Isaiah 49:16 (Niv)
16. I will not forget you! See, I have engraved
you on the palms of my hands; your walls are ever before me.
St. Mark 4:35-41 kjv
35 And the same day, when the even
was come, he [Jesus] saith unto them, Let us pass over unto the other side.
36 And when they had sent away the multitude, they
took him [Jesus] even as he [Jesus] was in the ship.
37 And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship,
so that it was now full.
38 And he [Jesus] was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him [Jesus],
and say unto him [Jesus], Master, carest thou not that we perish?
39 And he [Jesus] arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto
the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.
40 And he [Jesus] said unto them, Why are ye so fearful?
how is it that ye have no faith?
41 And they feared exceedingly, and said one to another,
What manner of man is this, that even
the wind and the sea obey him [Jesus]? ...
St. Matthew 11:28-30 (KJV)
Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and
I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
Philippinians 4:8 KJV
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever
things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of
good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
Romans 8:35, 36-39 KJV
Who shall separate
us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As
it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay in all these things we
are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities,
nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from
the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
St. Luke 12:6-7 KJV
Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not
one of them is forgotten before God? But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more
value than many sparrows.
(King James Version)
12. Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow
after,if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus.
13. Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended:
but this one thing I do,forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,
toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
Psalm 1: 1-3 (Kjv)
1 Blessed is the man that
walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly,
nor standeth in the way of sinners,
nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
2 But his
delight is in the law of the Lord;
and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the
rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season;
his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness,
but shall have the light of life.
Beatitudes (Matthew 5:3-11)
For what is a man
profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?
12:1-3 ( KJV)
Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight,
and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the author
and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the
right hand of the throne of God. For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye
be wearied and faint in your minds.
Lamentations 3:22-24 (KJV)
It is of the Lord's mercies that we are not consumed, because
his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. The Lord is my portion, saith my soul; therefore
will I hope in him.
I Corinthians 6:19-20 (NIV)
What? Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you,
which ye have of God and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit,
which are God's.
St. John 14:27 (KJV)
Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you.
Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
Revelation 1:8 KJV
I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending,
saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.
