Weekly Snippet: 5 Verses to Strengthen You

It's the weekend, and like usual, it is a little bit hectic around here.  Today I watched a friend successfully defend her master's thesis (yay!), and it made me think of a few verses that might encourage and strengthen my readers throughout the weekend and into the coming week.  I call these "power verses," because they remind you, not of your own human power, but rather, of God's power over any situation you might be facing.  So, without further ado...

  • "I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me." (Philippians 4: 13 KJV)
  • "He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.  You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday.  A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you." (Psalm 91: 4-7 NIV 2011)
  • "Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go." (Joshua 1: 9 NIV 2011)
  • "For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline." (2 Timothy 1: 7 NIV 2011)
  • "The Lord is my light and my salvation—whom shall I fear?  The Lord is the stronghold of my life—of whom shall I be afraid?" (Psalm 27: 1 NIV 2011)
