Faith in the Lord: 2 Corinthians 4:16-18.

2 Corinthians 4:16-18 ESV

16 So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. 17 For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, 18 as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.

God, The Fathers’  Love: John 14:16-17

Temple Of The Holy Spirit: 1 Corinthians 6:19-20.

1 Corinthians 6:19-20

19 Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, 20 for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body

Via Verse by Verse Commentary

Jesus paid the price for our sins at Calvary. His blood was the purchase price. Jesus delivered us from our sin by purchasing the price of our sin by shedding His blood. Jesus met all the holy demands of God’s justice by this payment. God owns the rights to our bodies. That is why we glorify Him with our bodies. God dwells in the body of the believer. A building is not the sanctuary; believers are the sanctuary. The believer receives the Holy Spirit at the point of salvation (Ephesians 1:13,14). The Holy Spirit seals his eternal salvation immediately at the point of initial salvation. The word “from” emphasizes the supernatural origin of the indwelling Holy Spirit in us.

Give Jesus Your Fears: 1 John 4:18

1 John 4:18

18 There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love.

Dear Lord,

I know you did not give us the spirit of fear, instead you give us your power, your love and a sound mind. I lay down my fears at the foot of the cross.  Eternal God, in whom mercy is endless and the treasury of compassion, inexhaustible, look upon us and increase Your mercy in us, that in difficult moments we might not despair nor become despondent. But with great confidence we will submit ourselves to Your holy will, which is Love and Mercy itself. In this I pray, Amen

James 1:12

12 Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him.

Luke 6:38

38 give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you.”

Lord I come before You, desiring to provide thanks.
Father, I have so much to be thankful for, things unseen and seen,
that You have done in my life.

I am thankful Lord for everything that You allow to cross my path. Thankful for the decisions that You allow me to make and the lessons that come from these decisions.

Lord, words do not express my thankfulness. For Your mighty power is at work in me, transforming me, renewing my mind. To You Lord belong thanks eternal.

In Jesus’ name,

Amen

God
