Whom have I in heaven but thee? And there is none upon earth that I desire besides thee. My flesh and my heart faileth; But God is the strength of my heart and my portion for ever (Psalm 73:25-26)
Thanks be to Elohim,
who has not rejected my prayer
or taken away his mercy from me (Psalm 66:20)
This is how God revealed his love to us: He sent his one and only Son into the world so that we could have life through him (1 John 4:9 Expanded Bible)
We encourage you, brothers and sisters, to instruct those who are not living right, cheer up those who are discouraged, help the weak, and be patient with everyone. Make sure that no one ever pays back one wrong with another wrong. Instead, always try to do what is good for each other and everyone else.
Always be joyful. Never stop praying. Whatever happens, give thanks, because it is God’s will in Christ Yeshua that you do this.
Don’t put out the Spirit’s fire. Don’t despise what God has revealed. Instead, test everything. Hold on to what is good. Keep away from every kind of evil (I Thessalonians 5:14-22)
Jesus answered, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’ This is the first and most important command. And the second command is like the first: ‘Love your neighbor as you love yourself’ (Matthew 22:37-39)
” I say this because I know what I am planning for you,” says the Lord. “I have good plans for you, plans for your peace and security, not plans to hurt you. I will give you hope and a good future. Then you will call my name. You will come to me and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will search for me. And when you search for me with all your heart, you will find me” (Jeremiah 29:11-13)
I passed by the field of a sluggard,
by the vineyard of one who lacks wisdom.
I saw that thorns had grown up all over it,
the ground was covered with weeds,
and its stone wall was broken down.
When I saw this, I gave careful consideration to it;
I received instruction from what I saw:
“A little sleep, a little slumber,
a little folding of the hands to relax,
and your poverty will come like a bandit,
and your need like an armed robber” (Proverbs 24:30-34)
