May the God who inspires men to endure, and gives them a Father’s care, give you a mind united towards one another because of your common loyalty to Jesus Christ. And then, as one man, you will sing from the heart the praises of God the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. So open your hearts to one another as Christ has opened his heart to you, and God will be glorified. (Romans 15:5-7)
The wisdom that comes from God is first utterly pure, then peace-loving, gentle, approachable, full of tolerant thoughts and kindly actions, with no breath of favoritism or hint of hypocrisy. And the wise are peace-makers who go on quietly sowing for a harvest of righteousness—in other people and in themselves (James 3:17-18)
Yahweh is not unrighteous to forget or overlook your labor and the love which you have shown for His name’s sake in ministering to the needs of the saints.
But we do strongly and earnestly desire for each of you to show the same diligence and sincerity all the way through in realizing and enjoying the full assurance and development of your hope until the end,
In order that you may not grow disinterested and become spiritual sluggards, but imitators, behaving as do those who through faith by their leaning of the entire personality on God in Christ in absolute trust and confidence in His power, wisdom, and grace and by practice of patient endurance and waiting are now inheriting the promises (Hebrews 6:10-12)
Frankly, I stand amazed at the unfathomable complexity of God’s wisdom and God’s knowledge. How could man ever understand his reasons for action, or explain his methods of working? For: ‘Who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has become his counsellor?’ ‘Or who has first given to him and it shall be repaid to him?’ (Romans 11:33-35)
Yahweh your Elohim is with you.
He is a hero who saves you.
He happily rejoices over you,
renews you with his love,
and celebrates over you with shouts of joy (Zephaniah 3:17)
Just as you don’t know how the breath of life enters the limbs of a child within its mother’s womb, you also don’t understand how Elohim, who made everything, works (Ecclesiastes 11:5)
“Who can find a wife with a strong character?
She is worth far more than jewels . . . . (Proverbs 31:10, 27-28)
