Encouraging Bible Verse On Knowing The Truth. 

Encouraging Bible Verse (# 1.)

The truth will set you free from corruption. 

The truth will set you free from envy and jealousy. 

The truth will set you free from carnality and hypocrisy. 

The truth will set you free from backbiting, criticism and hatred.

The truth will set you free from stagnation, and spiritual blindness. 

The truth will set you free from the forces of darkness. The truth will set you free from principalities and powers and spiritual wickedness in high places. 

The truth will set you free from destruction and eternal damnation.

Bible Verse On Having A Relationship With God. 

Encouraging Bible Verse (# 2.)

Mark 10:27 Jesus looked at them and said, 'With man it is impossible, but not with God. For all things are possible with God.' 


Now Jesus was addressing His disciples just after He told a very rich man to sell all his earthly possessions, given the money to the poor and come follow Him. 


This man wanted his soul to be saved, and wanted to live forever with Jesus but he became very sorrowful when he realized that he had to make a choice between God and his riches. 


So Jesus told His disciples that it's hard for a rich man to enter the Kingdom of Heaven. 


Many of us have a closer relationship with our money, our cars, our houses, our children, our wives, our husbands, our education etc. more than we have with God. 


The people who are willing to give up all those things and put God first are the few that will be chosen. 


So when we consider this, it seems impossible for anyone to be saved. 


But let us not worry about that, because with man it's impossible but with God all things are possible. 


Let us focus on living a life that pleases God and put him first at all times. 

Bible Verse On Loving God With Your Whole Being.

Encouraging Bible Verse (# 3.)

Mark 12:30 And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ "


You cannot love God half-hearted you must love Him with all of you because your life depends on it. 


If you don't love God like the Scripture said you should love Him, you will never live  a life that pleases Him. 


As soon as the cares of this world shows up to distract you, immediately you turn your back on God. 


You cannot love God with all your heart, soul, and mind if you have no faith. 


Because without faith it's impossible both to love and please GOD .


The devil is a roaring lion seeking whom he can devour, so stop playing church and get serious with your relationship with God. 


Get right with God while the blood is still running warm in your veins.


God is Your Strength

Encouraging Bible Verse (# 4.)

2 Corinthians 12:10 "Therefore, I’m all right with weaknesses, insults, disasters, harassments, and stressful situations for the sake of Christ, because when I’m weak, then I’m strong.


So it doesn't matter what you're going through this morning, you have the power of God right next to you. 


You might be weak in the flesh but you are strong in the spirit. 


The devil knows that insults trip u up so He will set insulters in your life to agitate your weak spot. 


But remember that with Christ in the vessel, you can smile at any storm. 


The devil will put you in harassments, disasters and stressful situations.


But remember that when you suffer for Christ in your weakness 


Just maintain your integrity and never compromise your faith 


God will strengthen you and lift up a standard against your enemy the devil 


Because the battle is really not yours, the battle is the Lord's. 


So when you are going through trials, remain faithful to God and stand still and see the salvation of the LORD your GOD. 


Encouraging Scripture On Transforming Your Mind

Encouraging Bible Verse (# 5.)

Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is--his good, pleasing and perfect will. Romans 12:2


Free your mind from ungodliness and thoughts of sinning against God. 

You are living in this world but you are not a citizen of this world. 

You are a citizen of the Kingdom of God and so you need to change the way That you think. 

You were called by God to reflect the characteristics of your maker 

So stop wasting your time mingling in sin and living at a standard that's less than what God created you to be. 


Bible Verse On Trusting In The LORD

Encouraging Bible Verse (# 6.)

Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; And lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, And he shall direct thy paths. Proverbs 3:5-6


My brethren, what this Scripture is saying is exactly the opposite of what the world is doing today. 

We do not put our trust and confidence in the Lord, we put our trust and confidence in our money. 

We put our trust and confidence in our jobs, we put our trust and confidence in our education. 

We put our trust and confidence in our children, We put our trust and confidence in our wives and husbands. 

We are putting our trust and confidence in earthly possessions but the Bible said it should only be in God. 

You can't trust GOD 1% of the time and put your trust in material things 99% of the time.

The Bible said to trust in the Lord with ALL  of your heart, and don't depend upon your own understanding. 

So you can't just trust Him sometimes, you must trust Him all the times. 

Because if you can only trust Him, and have faith in Him He will work upon the good desires of your heart.


Bible Verse On Being Strong In The LORD

Encouraging Bible Verse (# 7.)

Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.

Ephesians 6:10 


You might have been weak when you first came to Christ, but God didn't expect you remain weak. 

It is your responsibility to grow spiritually by walking in the spirit and not fulfil the lust of the flesh. 

It is your responsibility to walk before God with a perfect heart.

It is your responsibility to make choices that will strengthen you in the LORD and in the power of His might. 

If you continue to live in sin and do the works of darkness, you are just robbing yourself from the blessings that comes with being faithful. 

Be strong, make godly choices, walk before God with a perfect heart and make God pleased with you always.


The Goodness Of God

Encouraging Bible Verse (# 8.)

Those who seek the Lord lack no good thing. Psalm 34:10

If you want the things that are good in your life seek God because all things work together for good to them that love God.

When you put God first, He will ensure no weapon that's formed against you will ever prosper. 

 Seek the LORD which He may be found, seek the LORD while the blood is still running warm in your veins. 

Seek the LORD because salvation is a good thing, Seek the LORD while you still have time.


Bible Verse On Small Beginnings 

Encouraging Bible Verse (# 9.)

Zechariah 4:10 Do not despise these small beginnings, for the LORD rejoices to see the work begin, to see the plumb line in Zerubbabel’s hand.


In the days of the building of the 2nd temple, the project seemed to be a small thing in the eyes of Sanballat and the other enemies of God. 


However, the servants of the LORD humbled themselves under the mighty hand of God and continue to do the work of the LORD because 


God was not just looking at the beginning of the project, God was also looking at the finished product. Hallelujah 


When you 1st got saved, and started to go to church, the devil thought you was a joke, and planned to tear you down and turn you away from God instantly. 


But GOD did not see you like the devil did, God saw an evangelist, God saw a prayer warrior, God saw a choir director, God saw a Pastor, God saw a Sunday School Teacher, God saw a Bishop, God saw a Gospel Artists, God saw a Theologian, God saw a Christian Author, God saw a man and a woman after His own heart. 


So no matter what stage you are in your walk with the LORD, maintain your integrity in Him, keep trusting Him, repent daily, humble yourself under His mighty hand, fast and pray, study your Bible, walk in the spirit, put God first, worship Him in spirit and in truth, keep the faith and stand still and see the salvation of the LORD your GOD.

So shall they fear the name of the LORD from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him. Isaiah 59:19


The book of Isaiah is a prophetic book which deals with judgments, prophecies, deliverance and the promise the Messiah. 

This particular Scripture however, illustrates the kind of protection that the true servant of GOD can expect when faced with attacks from the devil. 


The devil is like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour, but God is present help in times of trouble. 

So when temptations come in like a flood, we can call upon the LORD our God and trust that he will lift up that standard against the evil one.


Your Job is to humble yourself under the mighty hand of God and walk before Him with a perfect heart so that He can bless your life. 

The enemy cannot destroy you as long as you have not compromise your faith in GOD.

Encouraging Bible Verse (# 11.)

My friend, waiting on God can sometimes seems overwhelming impossible. 

But I must tell you that the devil will make you feel like you cannot wait on God

But what did the word of God say? It says if you wait on God he will renew your strength.

Hope Beyond This Life Scripture

Encouraging Bible Verse (# 12.)

If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable. 1 Corinthians 15:19

My friends, this is not our final home. 

The hope that we have in Christ is not just about the material blessings in this life. 

The hope that we have in JESUS is not just for the mortal man but even more for the immortal man. 


You will go through tribulations, you will come upon attacks and deal with spiritual wickedness in your walk with God 

But these things must happen to try you, and to see how sincere to God you are. 

The man or the woman who will live godly must suffer persecutions. 


Do not lose heart my friend, if you endure to the end you will reap the reward of eternal life. 

This is the hope that we have in Christ, 

We will live and reign with Him forever, and the Kingdom of Heaven will be our new home.

So please remain faithful to the calling of God upon your life.

Do not compromise your faith, walk before Him with a perfect heart and maintain your integrity in Him 

Our hope in Christ is not for this life only, there is hope of better things to come.

Encouraging Bible Verse (# 13.)

For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 6:23

My friends, stop living in sin, repent and discontinue every involvement with unrighteousness.

Your soul is more important than the pleasures that you are getting from the gratifications of the flesh. 

The wages/the reward of sinning against God is not eternal life but eternal death. 

You need do the things that please GOD and shame the devil. 

You have a responsibility to walk in the spirit so that you will not fulfil the lust of the flesh. 

You have a responsibility to daily choose the things that are righteous and reject the things that are evil. 

So while the blood is still running warm in your veins, seek Jesus 

Because when you are dead, it will be too late, so seek God now while you still have time.

Encouraging Bible Verse (# 14.)

"In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world." John 16:33

My friends, when you made the decision to surrender your life to Jesus, immediately a spiritual war began. 

The devil and his host of demons saw you as an enemy and a threat him.

Just like he tempted Christ to shame God and bow down and worship him, 

As a follower of Christ, he will tempt you to turn your back on God also. 

You have a responsibility to daily make decisions that brings God glory and put the devil under your feet. 

The Holy Ghost is your helper, so let go and let GOD take control. 

Live a life that pleases God at all times, and walk before Him with a perfect heart. 

Jesus is an overcomer and so are you because He is the Author and the finisher of your faith.

Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time 1 PETER 5:6

My friends, God hates pride, He resists the proud but gives grace to the humble. 

The man who exalts himself will be humbled, but the man who humbles himself will be exalted. 

On this day October 2, 2021, I am encouraging you to humble yourself under the mighty hand of God. 

Because you cannot serve God with the spirit of pride in your life. 

The spirit of pride will make you hate your brothers and sisters. 

The spirit of pride will stop divine blessings from entering your life. 

The spirit of pride will discourage you from talking to God in prayer. 

The spirit of pride will keep you away from your Bible. 

The spirit of pride will shift your focus from righteousness and turn it to unrighteousness. 

The spirit of pride will take away your focus from the work of God and redirect it to the works of darkness. 

Let go of pride my friends, because God wants to use you to build His kingdom but pride and ministry do not work well together. 

Humble yourself so that God can exalt you in due time.

So do not be afraid of the attacks, circumstances, and trials that the devil is putting in your pathway. 

Do not be afraid of the people who are possessed by the devil and he is using them to get at you. 

Do not be afraid of fiery darts, spiritual warfare, and spiritual wickedness in high places.

Have faith in your God so that He can reverse every curse and shower you with divine blessings.

I decree and declare that you shall continue to spread God's word even in this rebellious and unrepentant generation without fear. 


The Blessing Of Loving God Bible Verse

Encouraging Bible Verse (# 19.)

And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to His purpose. Romans 8:28

You cannot say that you love God and keep on sinning against Him, you are only depriving yourself of the blessings that comes with being faithful. 

Many of you claim that you are Christians, but your lifestyle is the evidence of a hypocrite.

That is why nothing that you prayed for ever came through, because you are just pretending to be holy and you cannot fool God. 

Everything is going against you, and everywhere you turn you have problems. Why is that?

Because you have made yourself an enemy of God, by heeding the voice of satan, and ignored the instructions of God 

When you truly love God, you make sacrifices by fasting, praying, studying HIS word and never compromise your faith 

If you really love God, He will intervene and ensure that all things work for your good 

If you genuinely want to love God, you need to repent of your sins now, and surrender completely to HIM, so that your life can bring Him Glory. 


Thake It To The Lord In Prayer

Encouraging Bible Verse (# 20.)

Are you anxious, worried or stressed out about a certain situation or problem today? This Bible verse might be exactly what you need to hear.

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6–7

The situations that are presently in your life, are temporary.

Do not get anxious about anything, no matter how gigantic of a mountain that thing may seem be.

Take it to the LORD in prayer, and petition God to work things out for you. 

While you are at it, give God thanks for what He is about to do. 

The Bible verse did not say: "present your requests to man," It says: "present your requests to God."

So stop seeking help from man, because they are vulnerable and full of problems like yourself. 

Give the problems and the things that you are so anxious about to your God and have faith in Him as He work things out for your good. 

When you trust God to deal with your situations, the peace that transcends all understanding will guard your heart and mind from turning away from God. 


A Relationship With God Verse

Encouraging Bible Verse (# 21.)

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in faith so that you overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” Romans 15:13

Real joy comes from having a relationship with God and living a life that pleases Him everyday. 

Material things might make you feel good for a while until they start to deteriorate. 

While many persons prioritizes material things over a personal relationship with God 

Material things cannot give you complete happiness, only God can 

If you can see the Importance of always putting God first, your life will be blessed beyond measures. 

And you will have peace of mind, something that the world desperately needs, especially in these trying times. 


Bible Verse On Hope Of A Better Future. 

Encouraging Bible Verse (# 22.)

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11

We understand that the context in which this verse was written was addressing people who were going through hardships and sufferings.

The misunderstanding that many persons have about this Scripture is the idea of instant rescue from their hardships and sufferings .

God will not remove all of your struggles and hardships completely, 

Because as a righteous person living your life to please GOD, you will go through temptations and sufferings. 

What is meant by this verse is that God has a plan to prosper you as long as you remain faithful to Him and trust His timing. 

Sometimes while you are going through sufferings, you tend to forget that God is working all things for your good. 

God will not give you the expectation of your fear or what you lust after 

God will give you the expectations of your faith, because without faith, nothing is possible. 

Finally, the main focus of this text is to build within us a sense of hope for eternal future blessings.

We will not always be in captivity, go through persecutions, attacks, circumstances, trials and sufferings. 

There is coming a time of everlasting life, everlasting peace, everlasting joy and happiness and we will live and reign with Christ forever.  


Bible Verse On God Is With You

Encouraging Bible Verse (# 23.)

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9

There will be times when the enemy will throw the worst of situations in your pathway but be strong. 

You have to stand up for God no matter what trials and persecutions satan 

 placed in your pathway. 

Jesus Christ was in human form like us and He went through a whole lot of sufferings even to the death of the cross 

He had a mission to accomplish and He wasn't going to let anything stop Him from doing the work of God. 

Job had a work to do, Daniel had a work to do, Moses had a work to do, Joshua had a work to do, Israel had a work to do and Christ had a major work 

However, the most important thing is that the LORD GOD was with them as they carried out His assignments. 

The LORD GOD is with you too as you continue to live for Him and carry out His business. 

Do not worry about what you are seeing with your natural eyes, because you don't walk by sight you live by faith. 

And without faith it's impossible to please Him.


You Shall Not Want Because The LORD Is Your Shepherd. 

Encouraging Bible Verse (# 24.)

Psalms 23:1 (KJV) The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.

A shepherd is Someone who watches over, looks after, or guides somebody.

The Scripture said that the LORD is your Shepherd 

There is a sense of belonging and a spirit of hope that comes upon you when you hear these words. 

The LORD is always watching over you no matter where life takes you 

The LORD is looking after your every needs 

The LORD is always guiding you away from harms and dangers 

When everyone else around you seems to be suffering, because of their rebellious spirit 

You shall not want, you shall lack no good thing, you shall be the Head and not the tail because of your faithfulness to God 

Ask and it shall be given, seek and you will find, knock and the door shall be opened unto you says the LORD. 

When the LORD opens the floodgates of heaven and pour out a blessing in your life, you will not have room enough to receive it. 

Just make sure that you are faithful and sincere to the GOD Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and you shall lack nothing. 


Encouraging Bible Verse On Hope In God.

Encouraging Bible Verse (# 25.)

If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable 1st Corinthians 15:19

Your hope in Christ Jesus is not limited only to material blessings in this life. 

Whether you own a car or not, whether you're living in your own house or not 

Whether you have millions in your bank account or just a few cents 

Whether you are married or you are single 

Whether you have children or you cannot have children 

Whether you have a decent job or you are unemployed 

Whether you are sick or you are healthy 

Whatever Your situation might be, your hope in Christ is not just about this life 

Your hope in Christ is also valid beyond the grave 

Your hope in Christ is an everlasting hope 

Your hope in Christ is not limited to material things in this life 

When Christ went to the cross, He wasn't dying for you just to give you earthly possessions 

Christ Jesus gave up His life so that you can enter into a place of eternal rest, eternal life and eternal happiness. 


Bible Verse On Keeping Your Mind On Christ. 

Encouraging Bible Verse (# 26.)

You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you.” Isaiah 26:3

Keep your mind on Christ. 

When you feel discouraged and want to give up, Keep your mind on Christ. 

When you have the bills to pay and you don't see the way, Keep your mind on Christ. 

When it feels like all hope is lost, Keep your mind on Christ. 

When you are tempted to sin against God, Keep your mind on Christ. 

When you leave everything in God's hand, you will see God’s hand in everything in your life. 

Not only will you be blessed, but you will have the peace that transcends all understanding 

All because you did not put your trust and hope in man

But rather, You kept your mind on Christ, and put your trust in the God of your salvation. 


Walking In The Spirit Bible Verse

Encouraging Bible Verse (# 27.)

This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.” Galatians 5:16

You have a responsibility to daily choose to do the things that brings glory to God. 

Flesh cannot bring glory to God neither can flesh and blood inherit the Kingdom of God 

In order for you to please GOD and walk before Him with a perfect heart, 

You must feed your spiritual man. 

You must fast, 

You must pray, 

You must study to show yourself approved 

You must maintain your integrity in God 

You must love one another 

You must trust GOD 

You must have faith in GOD 

And you must rebuke the very appearance of evil from your life 

It is better to walk in the spirit and bring God glory than to fulfil the gratifications of your flesh and please the devil. 


Bible Verse On Exalting The Name Of the LORD.

Encouraging Bible Verse (# 28.)

Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. Psalm 46:10

God is not begging anybody to exalt His name, He is telling us that He will be exalted.

You might choose not to believe that there is a God, but that doesn't negate His existence and His omnipotence. 

Whether you believe in God or not, you will stand before Him on judgment day and give an account for your sins. 

The Scripture said Stand still and know that I AM God.

God is telling us in this verse that He is God, He wasn't asking our opinion on the matter, He is telling us that He is God. 

And He didn't stop there; He went on to say that He will be exalted among the heathen and He will be exalted in the earth. 

Whether you want to exalted Him or not His name will still be exalted. 

Whether you decide to repent of your sins or not, His name will be exalted. 

Whether you want to fast and pray or not, His name will be exalted 

Whether you want to read your Bible or not, His name will be exalted. 

Whether you are faithful to God or not, His name will be exalted. 

Whether you have a relationship with God or not, His name will be exalted. 

Whether you believe that there is a God or not, His name will be exalted  

Whether you believe in the Bible or not, His name will be exalted in all the earth because He alone is worthy to be praised. 


Encouraging Bible Verse On The Secret Place

Encouraging Bible Verse (# 29.)

He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

 Psalm 91:1

Your protection from spiritual wickedness and spiritual attacks come when you make the effort to dwell in the secret place of the most High. 

What is the meaning of the secret place?

The 'secret place' means to: stay in God's presence and do HIS will, 

We do that by being faithful to His teachings and commands and walk before Him with a perfect heart. 

How do i get in the secret place?

When you take up your Bible and study God's word, you are in the secret place. 

When you choose to forgive rather than to render evil for evil, you are in the secret place. 

When you decide to put food aside so that you can draw nearer to God, you are in the secret place. 

When you choose not to be unfaithful to your wife or to your husband, you are in the secret place. 

When you choose to pray instead of worrying about the situations, you are in the secret place.

The secret place is actually you bringing glory to God by the way that you live your life. When you choose to do the things that are right in the sight of the Lord, you are giving glory to God and that's the right way to live your life.


Bible Verse And Sermon On The Kingdom Of Heaven

Encouraging Bible Verse (# 30.)

Then said Jesus unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 19:23 (KJV)  

The Kingdom of Heaven is a place of eternal rest, eternal peace and eternal life. 

First let's get this clear, Jesus did not say that rich people cannot enter the Kingdom of Heaven. 

He said they will hardly enter. 

The reason why it is so hard for the rich to enter is because most rich people are quicker to put their trust and hope in their wealth than in the God who created them. 

When you put your trust in earthly possessions and reject the death, burial and resurrection of Christ Jesus you cannot enter the Kingdom of Heaven. 

When you put money first and Jesus last, you cannot enter the Kingdom of Heaven. 

When you turn the Church of God into a place of money making over the teaching of God's word, you cannot enter the Kingdom of Heaven. 

When you rob and kill people to gain riches, you cannot enter the Kingdom of Heaven. 

When you sell your soul to the devil to gain wealth and become famous, you cannot enter the Kingdom of Heaven. 

When you can find time to accumulate more riches, but you you cannot find the time to pray for 1 minute, you cannot enter the Kingdom of Heaven. 

Riches of itself is not a bad thing, it is when you turn away from God because of your wealth that puts you in a bad spot. 

If you are watching this and you are a rich person, do not let your wealth drag you down to hell. 

Repent of your sins and surrender completely to the LORD JESUS CHRIST while the blood is still running warm in your veins.
