For the Lord is the Spirit, and wherever the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.
2 Corinthians 3:17 NLT
But the Lord is the only true God. He is the living God and the everlasting King! The whole earth trembles at his anger. The nations cannot stand up to his wrath.
Jeremiah 10:10 NLT
Remember their is only one true living God. One True Creator of the universe. And if you INVITE him into your hearts he will love you and call you his child.
I have hidden your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you.
Psalms 119:11 NLT
And the Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness. For example, we don’t know what God wants us to pray for. But the Holy Spirit prays for us with groanings that cannot be expressed in words.
Romans 8:26 NLT
Don’t I need to be reminded of this! As I’m trying to get back into my routine and connect with God. The Holy Spirit was sent by him to help!
But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere—in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
Acts of the Apostles 1:8 NLT
That’s why I don’t think there’s any comparison between the present hard times and the coming good times. The created world itself can hardly wait for what’s coming next. Everything in creation is being more or less held back. God reins it in until both creation and all the creatures are ready and can be released at the same moment into the glorious times ahead. Meanwhile, the joyful anticipation deepens.
Romans 8:18 MSG
I don’t know much about suffering as I live quite a blessed life. But i pray that those who are suffering find peace in this verse. I pray that when hard times come around for me and my family that I remember this verse.
