1 John 1:7 If we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, His Son, purifies us from all sin.

1 John 3:17 If a person has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need and that person doesn’t care — how can the love of God remain in him?

John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life.

Ephesians 5:1-2 Follow God’s example, therefore, as dearly loved children 2 and walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave Himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.

2 Corinthians 9:6 But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully.

Isaiah 53:5-6 …He was pierced for our transgressions, He was crushed for our sins; the punishment that brought us peace was upon Him, and by His wounds we are healed. 6 We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way; and the LORD has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.

May you not accept the enemy’s version of what God has promised, as Sarai did when offering her handmaid to Abram, but wait patiently to see God work in ways that are impossible with man. If you can do it, how can God be glorified? Genesis 16

May you be assured of God’s love for you, not based on who you are, free or bond, nor affected by your feelings, arrogant or cowed, nor swayed by your behavior, obedient or rebellious. His loving care, mercy, and grace are a banquet to which He calls you, that you may partake of freely, just as Hagar was provided for at the well of Beer Lahai Roi. Genesis 16

May you walk before the Lord Almighty and be blameless in the intent of your heart and your faith in His promise. Thus He can confirm His covenant with you and greatly increase you. He will change your name (your nature) and make you very fruitful in His kingdom, and He will be your God. Genesis 17

May you understand that your fleshly nature will receive discipline. The carnal mind is enmity to God and must be brought into subjection. The scars of God’s chastening, which will humble you and do you good if you yield to it, will be the sign of the covenant He makes with His people in the latter days. That is the sign which will set them apart from every other people in the world. Genesis 17

May you not be distracted by the blessings of God so that you fail to receive the covenant of God. Genesis 17

Do not view what has been as what will always be, for I am the eternally creative God Who delights in revealing His nature to you in new and different ways. I never change, but I am always expanding your understanding of My love, which is vast enough to soothe the innumerable hurts of each person through all time.
Come and learn of Me — I will show you My ways differently than I teach another person, because I have walked with you through every detail of your life and understand what touches your heart.
Expect the unexpected, and let Me speak through you to others in words not of your choosing, yet in a way that will touch them, even as I have touched you.
Accept the diversity of My Body as I unite you with those I bring you to in the unity of My Spirit.

May you recall that there is nothing which is too hard for God. He will keep His promises which will be brought forth in His time, and you will be filled with joy and laughter at the occasion. Genesis 18

May you give to the needy out of the compassion of the Lord, and not for the regard of men, for the favor of men can never match the favor of the Father. Matthew 6

May you turn your heart to the Lord in all things, seeking His favor, obeying His will, and following His ways. Where your heart is, you will store up treasure. Matthew 6

May you take refuge in the Lord your God, Who saves and delivers you from all who pursue you, preventing them from tearing you like a lion and ripping you to pieces with no recourse. Psalm 7

May you not wrong your ally or help his lawless foe lest your enemy relentlessly pursue and overtake you, trampling your life to the ground in dishonor. Christ knows the hearts of men, seeing the secret wickedness of the wicked and understanding how to bring it to an end. He is also a witness to the secret sincerity of the just and has ways of establishing it when you make peace with God through the grace and mercy of Jesus’ sacrifice. Psalm 7

May you give thanks to the Lord because of His righteousness and sing praises to the name of the Lord Most High. Psalm 7

May you accept the words of the Lord and store up His commandments within you, turning your ear to wisdom and applying your heart to understanding, calling out for insight and crying aloud for understanding. If you look for it as for silver and search for it as for hidden treasure, then you will understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God. Proverbs 2:1-5
