Now the Lord is that Spirit:
and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.
2 Corinthians 3:17
Not by might, nor by power,
but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts.
How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them?
Keep your lives free from the love of money
and be content with what you have, because God has said, "Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you."
Whither shall I go from thy spirit?
or whither shall I flee from thy presence?
Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
1 John 4:4
But you when you pray, enter into your inner room,
and having shut your door,
pray to your Father, the One in secret.
And your Father, the One seeing in secret,
will reward you.
“My Lord and my God!” 29 Jesus said to him,
“Because you have seen Me, you have believed;
blessed are those who have not seen,
and yet have believed.”
1 Peter 1:8
Jesus replied, “This is the work of God:
to believe in the One He has sent.”
For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him.
Outside of God?
There are different ways of working,
but the same God works all things in all men.
1 Corinthians 12:6
For it is God who works in you to will and to act
on behalf of His good pleasure.
No one has ever seen God;
but if we love one another,
God lives in us and his love
is made complete in us.
1 John 4:12
Why are you in despair, O my soul?
And why have you become disturbed within me?
Hope in God, for I shall again praise Him
For the help of His presence.
Let everything that has breath praise the LORD.
Praise the LORD!
No temptation has overtaken you
that is not common to man.
God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted
beyond your ability, but with the temptation
he will also provide the way of escape,
that you may be able to endure it.
1 Corinthians 10:13
"For the sake of My name I delay My wrath,
And for My praise I restrain it for you, In order not to cut you off. 10 "Behold, I have refined you, but not as silver; I have tested you in the furnace of affliction.
11 "For My own sake, for My own sake, I will act;
For how can My name be profaned?
And My glory I will not give to another.…
Love1If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a ringing gong or a clanging cymbal. 2If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have absolute faith so as to move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 3If I give all I possess to the poor and exult in the surrender of my body, but have not love, I gain nothing.4Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no account of wrongs. 6Love takes no pleasure in evil, but rejoices in the truth. 7It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 1 Corinthians 13
