How lovely on the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news,
         Who announces peace and brings good news of happiness,
         Who announces salvation, and says to Zion, "Your God reigns!"
    Listen! Your watchmen lift up their voices, they shout joyfully together;
         For they will see with their own eyes when the LORD restores Zion.
    Break forth, shout joyfully together, you waste places of Jerusalem;
         For the LORD has comforted His people, He has redeemed Jerusalem.
   The LORD has bared His holy arm in the sight of all the nations,
         That all the ends of the earth may see the salvation of our God.

            Isaiah 52:7-10 


"I'm not saying that I have this all together, that I have it made.  But I am well on my way, reaching out for Christ, who has so wondrously reached out for me.  Friends, don't get me wrong: By no means do I count myself an expert in all of this, but I've got my eye on the goal, where God is beckoning us onward—to Jesus. I'm off and running, and I'm not turning back."

Philippians 3:13 


"And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."

John 8:32 


"And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose."

Romans 8:28 


"God chose things the world considers foolish in order to shame those who think they are wise. And he chose things that are powerless to shame those who are powerful."

1 Corinthians 1:27


"But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things!"

Galations 5:22-23 


"Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.  Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil.  For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.

Therefore, put on every piece of God’s armor so you will be able to resist the enemy in the time of evil. Then after the battle you will still be standing firm.  Stand your ground, putting on the belt of truth and the body armor of God’s righteousness.  For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News so that you will be fully prepared.  In addition to all of these, hold up the shield of faith to stop the fiery arrows of the devil.  Put on salvation as your helmet, and take the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all believers everywhere."

Ephesians 6:10-18 


"'Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,' says the LORD of hosts." 

Zechariah 4:6 


"How blessed is everyone who fears the LORD, who walks in His ways.
    When you shall eat of the fruit of your hands, you will be happy and it will be well with you.  Your wife shall be like a fruitful vine within your house; your children like olive plants around your table.
    Behold, for thus shall the man be blessed who fears the LORD."

Psalms 128:1-4


"Delight yourself in the LORD and He will give you the desires of your heart."

Psalms 37:4
