VerseD: 1 Samuel 2:2

“There is none holy like the Lord : for there is none besides you; there is no rock like our God.”
1 Samuel 2:2, ESV

God is set apart from all other creatures and things. None is like Him.

Likewise, though He is completely apart from us, He is ever present and near, holding us and supporting us. All creatures and all things (Hebrews 1:3).

VerseD: Exodus 14:14

“The Lord will fight for you, and you have only to be silent.”
Exodus 14:14, ESV

Remember that vengeance belongs to the Lord (Deuteronomy 32:35), so do not retaliate in any way. Hold your tongue and hold back your hand.

In fact, turn the other cheek and forgive.

VerseD: James 4:7

Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
James 4:7, ESV

It is impossible to combat and defeat Satan apart from God. Continually drawing near to God is from where any power in our life comes.

VerseD: Titus 2:11-12

For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation for all people, training us to renounce ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in the present age,
Titus 2:11‭-‬12, ESV

In a western society, it is incredibly easy to give in to our passions and follow the world’s example.

That means it is hard to live rightly.

Praise God that He sent His Son to show us grace, and they sent the Spirit to strengthen us!

VerseD: 2 Chronicles 7:14

if my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.
2 Chronicles 7:14, ESV

God wants to respond to His people. He is about relationships. If we seek Him, we will find Him. This is the first step in changing our world.

VerseD: Ezekiel 10:18

Then the glory of the Lord went out from the threshold of the house, and stood over the cherubim.
Ezekiel 10:18, ESV

Paul tells us that the Church is the house of God (1 Timothy 3:15). His glory proceeds from the house, and we have been commissioned, as the Church, to carry His glory to the world. He helps carry us along as we are sent out.

VerseD: Hebrews 12:2

looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.
Hebrews 12:2, ESV

Do not be confused. Jesus was not happy to die, but He was willing to endure anything for what was on the other side: eternal life with His forgiven adopted brothers and sisters, to the glory of the Father through the Holy Spirit who draws us in guides us to that perfection of faith.
