  • 1 John 5:4 Whatever is born of God conquers the world. And this is the victory that conquers the world, our faith.

    1 John 4:18 There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.

    Psalm 46:11 The Lord Almighty is with us…

    Psalm 19:9-10 The judgments of the Lord are… 10 more desirable than gold, yes, than much fine gold; sweeter also than honey and the drippings of the honeycomb.

    May you know that, in the Lord, you are one of many and, together, very powerful and abundantly blessed so that, when you have grown enough to need expansion, you will find that, through God's Word and in God's strength, you are well able to possess the promises He has given. Joshua 17

    May you be confident of God's strength and strategy in your life when you are facing spiritual battles which seem too great to win, for He guides you one step at a time. Joshua 17

    May you not be satisfied with the ease of a rich land after living in the dry desert for so long, lest you begin dreading the prospect of spiritual battle; for it is not yourselves that you battle for, but those you will shepherd who will need you to have the word of truth and to know the God of promise, so that you will be practiced in ministry, pointing them to the Lord, even as you have been pointed. Joshua 18

    My child, do not seek to be separate from the world, but to be devoted and attached to Me.
    As you learn of Me through My Word and by My Spirit, your heart will draw closer to Me out of hunger for the true Bread of Life and thirst for the true Water of Life, leaving behind, without struggle, the substitutes which the world supplied.
    Come, My beloved, eat and drink without cost, for I have willingly paid the price for your admittance. Come, and find rest for your soul.

    May you remember that wealth and influence alone will still leave a person hungry spiritually, and that God will give you the words of life for those willing and determined to seek them out, and their acceptance will bring fruits of repentance. Luke 19

    May you take joy and gladness in your new life as one who is born in the kingdom of God and has become a citizen of the city of God, for that is where He takes His delight. Psalm 87

    May the time and effort you put into the work of the kingdom return multiplied blessings and spiritual riches, just as wealth from hard work will grow. Proverbs 13:11
