“You keep completely safe the people who maintain their faith, for they trust in you.” — Isa 26:3 NET
Throw your burden upon the Lord, and he will sustain you. He will never allow the godly to be upended.—“I will trust in him and not fear. For the Lord gives me strength and protects me; he has become my deliverer.”
“Why are you cowardly, you people of little faith?”—Do not be anxious about anything. Instead, in every situation, through prayer and petition with thanksgiving, tell your requests to God. And the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.—“If you calmly trusted in me you would find strength.”
Fairness will produce peace and result in lasting security.—“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you; I do not give it to you as the world does. Do not let your hearts be distressed or lacking in courage.”—Peace to you from “he who is,” and who was, and who is still to come.
Ps 55:22, Isa 12:2, Matt 8:26, Phil 4:6-7, Isa 30:15, Isa 32:17, John 14:27, Rev 1:4
Do not let the sun go down on the cause of your anger. — Eph 4:26 NET
“If your brother sins, go and show him his fault when the two of you are alone. If he listens to you, you have regained your brother.”—Then Peter came to him and said, “Lord, how many times must I forgive my brother who sins against me? As many as seven times?” Jesus said to him, “Not seven times, I tell you, but seventy-seven times!—”Whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him, so that your Father in heaven will also forgive you your sins."
Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with a heart of mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience, bearing with one another and forgiving one another, if someone happens to have a complaint against anyone else. Just as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also forgive others.—Be kind to one another, compassionate, forgiving one another, just as God in Christ also forgave you.
The apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith!”
Matt 18:15, Matt 18:21-22, Mark 11:25, Col 3:12-13, Eph 4:32, Luke 17:5
