Biblical Encouragement


Below are verses that I have found helpful in specific situations. God’s word always has an answer to our need. He will speak to us through His word. For an online Bible:

My favorite Study Bible is called the Thompson Chain-Reference Bible. I use the New International Version. I love the index of Scriptures, the Concordance, and the Process of using Scripture to interpret Scripture by using the Chain-Reference method of study. More about this in my blog posts on Bible Study. Also, for journaling, I like this Kindred Spirits Journal.

Does God Have Your Heart?

But the seed on good soil stands for those with a noble and good heart, who hear the word, retain it, and by persevering produce a crop. Luke 8:15

Will you make a covenant with me to seek the Lord, the God of our fathers, with all of your heart and soul?

They sought God eagerly, and he was found by them. So the Lord game them rest on every side.  2 Chronicles 15:15

Letʼs commit wholeheartedly and seek God eagerly. He wants us to set our hearts on seeking Him.

God sees our hearts. Will He find our hearts faithful to Him?

One thing I ask of the Lord, this is what I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to seek him in his temple. Psalm 27:4
My heart is steadfast, O God, my heart is steadfast; I will sing and make music. Psalm 57:7
I will give them a heart to know me, that I am the Lord. They will be my people and I will be their God, for they will return to me with all their heart. Jeremiah 24:7
I will give them an undivided heart and put a new spirit in them; I will remove from them their heart of stone and give them a heart of flesh. Then they will follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws. They will be my people and I will be their God.   Ezekiel 11:19
I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws.  Ezekiel 36:26-27
