Fear & Trust | 5 Scriptures I Like

Tell me I am not the only one who really enjoys small pieces of scriptures?

Reading through the Bible is completely okay. But if we want to take out more from scripture, we cannot read the Bible like a regular story. We must devote time and patience. Focusing on pieces of scripture instead of whole paragraphs or chapters allows us to meditate easier on the words, pray specifically, and memorize better.Β 

Today, I wanted to share some scriptures that continue to speak to me and encourage me to dig into His words and promises. I hope they speak to you. πŸ™‚

(CEV) 2 Corinthians 4:07, “We are like clay jars in which this treasure is stored. The real power comes from God and not from us.”Β 

– I feel like this scripture explains everything. I originally was looking for scripture that says we are leaky vessels, but I was surprised to not find that precise wording. I know there is a scripture similar. However, when I saw this scripture it spoke to me. For many years, I’ve always said to myself, “It is not about me or my power. It is always about God and what He can do. Without Him, I’m nothing. I can’t do anything without Him.” This scripture says this. πŸ™‚

(NIV) Matthew 6:34, “Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”

– I remember the first time I found this scripture as a young teen, and it has always spoken to me since. I found comfort in the line, “tomorrow will worry about itself.”Β I should not worry about tomorrow because today is sufficient.

(NIV) Phillippians 4:06, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.”

– God knows us. What we are going through. The struggles we have. Even in hard times, we are to worship Him and let Him these things. He will hear us. He will provide in His own way.

(NIV) Ezekiel 36:26, “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.”

– This scripture I’ve come to really like in the past few years. When we are struggling with temptation and the fear of not overcoming the ways of this world, this is a promise we can cling to. God and His ways WILL help us cling to Him, but we must turn over to Christ. This is why the more time we give to Him instead of media, people, or ourselves, the more His light will radiate on us. Think of Moses on the mountain and how much he glowed when he came down. This is what happens when we give God our time and devotion.Β 

(NIV) 2 Corinthians 5:07, “For we live by faith, not by sight.”

– An old favorite. Another promise. There is so much more ahead of us that we do not see. I want to see His plan unfold with lifted hands towards Him, not with my hands weighted down at my sides from worry and anxiety.Β

  1. Like Becoming His Tapestry, Psalm 73:26 is one of my (admittedly many) faves. It is especially wonderful to remember when dealing with chronic illness.

    Another is Psalm 16:11 – “For You make known to me the path of life; in Your presence there is fullness of joy; at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.”

    And all of Romans 12 – just a really good chunk to store up both in heart and in memory. πŸ™‚

    1. Amen!!! Those are powerful!!!! πŸ™‚ You know Romans is one of my favorite books because it is packed full of so many amazing truths!! I had a Sunday school teacher say Romans is a book best for new believers and believers in general because it covers everything.

      1. It is! I spent several weeks studying it more deeply with our small group while our pastor also preached on it. I honestly think even after spending months reading, studying, and re-reading it, I only scratched the surface. πŸ™‚

  2. Those are beautiful scriptures, T.R. especially Matthew 6:34 which speaks to me over and over again. Proverbs 18:10 is my go-to scripture as you may already know by now and I am currently loving Song of Solomon 6:3.

  3. Wonderful scriptures. πŸ™‚ One that has been speaking to me lately is Mark 11:24-25, “Therefore, I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it and it will be yours. And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that you Father in heaven may forgive you your sin.”

  4. Lovely selection of scriptures. Among other purposes, they serve perfectly as offensive and defensive weaponry.
    One of my favourites for Fear and trust, Isaiah 41:10 AMPC “Fear not [there is nothing to fear], for I am with you; do not look around you in terror and be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen and harden you to difficulties, yes, I will help you; yes, I will hold you up and retain you with My [victorious] right hand of rightness and justice.” I love It because it serves both the offensive (trust) and defensive (fear) πŸ™‚

  5. Great scriptures indeed. This is one of the ones God gave me for the year. β€œFor I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland.”
    ‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭43:19‬ ‭NLT‬‬

  7. One of My favorites is Philippians 4:06! Thank you for speaking truth to my soul today! I face so much fear in life. My daughter almost died right after she was born from a freak incident. I’ve quickly realized life is too short and way to fragile. Thankfully she survived. And I have my faith in Jesus to lean on. But I struggle so much. I really liked your post! Thanks for sharing. I do have my daughter story a few posts down if you would like to read it.
