    12 That ye may walk honestly toward them that are without, and that ye may have lack of nothing.

    Yes. We need to resist temptation, of course.

    Thank you for posting a nice thread here at CC that edifies, and thank you for your kind words.

    Also, thank you for allowing those here who have left a response for the opportunity to share what God has put in their heart, me included.

    I must admit that I'm curious what verses you might be willing to share here that you come back to often during the course of praying for others going through a tough situation.

    Btw, welcome aboard.

    To God our Father be the glory forever and ever in Christ Jesus Amen.
    For of Him, and through Him, and to Him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen.
    Acts 19:2
    He said unto them, Have ye received the Holy Ghost since ye believed? And they said unto him, We have not so much as heard whether there be any Holy Ghost.

    Psalm 119:105
    Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.

    Romans 1:16
    For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

I read this verse and it says to me only if I believe in Jesus will I have everlasting life, that belief in God alone is not enough.
    Jesus is God, but I think the verse is clear. He sent, and if you believe the One He sent, then you are saved. I mean, the second "Him" modifies who was sent.

    Thank you Resurrection. It has been an encouragement having people willing to respond and share their thoughts on this question. I agree, we need to do our part too. Hope you have a great day.

    Hi Vince,

    I find myself praying more and more for people where situations may make them feel alone in a situation. So, I do try and pray for peace in the situation that a person faces, and reassure that no matter what we go through, we are not alone. There have been many times in my own life, that knowing that God is with me has given me hope to carry on.

    Below are some of the verses that have stood out for me. And of course, it may vary depending on the situation that is being faced.

    Lamentations 3:22-23 The Steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, His mercies never come to an end, they are new every morning, great is Your faithfulness.

    John 14:27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.

    Psalm 34:4 I sought the Lord and He heard me and delivered me from all my fears.

    I liked your reminder that in life we are going to face hard times and tribulation (John 16:33) but our focus does not need to stay on the problems that we are facing, but rather focus on the one who has overcome.

    I think it is so easy to try and fight our life battles alone, and your verse from 1 John 2:12-14, reminding me of the fact that our key to overcoming is based on our abiding in Him. So again, we are given that reminder of where our strength comes from.

    I appreciate the time that you and others have taken to share with me. It is great that we can be there for, and encourage one another.

    I look forward to sharing with you in time, as I use these and other verses with others to encourage them and to be encouraged myself.

    I am glad to be here.

    Annette

    Col 1:13-14

    For He rescued us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.

    Thank you so much NotMyOwn, I love the verse that you shared, that we do not have to remain in darkness. That is there is hope and light. I appreciate you taking time to share.
