#Finally, dear brothers and sisters, we ask you to pray for us. Pray that the Lord’s message will spread rapidly and be honored wherever it goes, just as when it came to you. #Pray, too, that we will be #rescued from #wicked and evil people, for not everyone is a #believer. But the Lord is #faithful; he will strengthen you and guard you from the #evil one. And we are #confident in the Lord that you are doing and will continue to do the things we commanded you. May the Lord lead your hearts into a full #understanding and expression of the #love of God and the patient endurance that comes from Christ. And now, dear brothers and sisters, we give you this command in the name of our #Lord #Jesus Christ: Stay away from believers who #live idle lives and don’t follow the #tradition they received from us. For you know that you ought to imitate us. We were not #idle when we were with you. We never accepted food from anyone without paying for it. We worked #hard #day and night so we would not be a #burden to any of you. We certainly had the #right to ask you to feed us, but we wanted to give you an #example to #follow. Even while we were with you, we gave you this command: “Those unwilling to #work will not get to eat.”” 2 Thessalonians‬ ‭3:1-10‬ ‭NLT‬‬ #bible

“As for us, we can’t #help but #thank God for you, dear brothers and sisters #loved by the Lord. We are always #thankful that God chose you to be among the #first to experience salvation—a salvation that came through the #Spirit who makes you #holy and through your #belief in the #truth. He called you to #salvation when we told you the #GoodNews; now you can share in the #glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. With all these things in #mind, dear brothers and sisters, #stand #firm and keep a #strong grip on the teaching we passed on to you both in person and by letter. Now may our #Lord #Jesus Christ himself and #God our Father, who loved us and by his #grace gave us #eternal #comfort and a #wonderful #hope, comfort you and strengthen you in every #good thing you do and say.” 2 Thessalonians‬ ‭2:13-17‬ ‭NLT‬‬ #bible #readthroughthebible

“Now concerning the coming of our #Lord Jesus Christ and our being gathered to him: We ask you, brothers and sisters, not to be easily upset or #troubled, either by a prophecy or by a message or by a letter supposedly from us, alleging that the day of the Lord has come. Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way. For that #day will not come unless the rebellion comes first and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to destruction. He opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he sits in God’s temple, proclaiming that he himself is God. Don’t you remember that when I was still with you I used to tell you about this? And you know what currently restrains him, so that he will be revealed in his #time. For the #mystery of lawlessness is already at work, but the one now restraining will do so until he is out of the #way, and then the lawless one will be revealed. The Lord #Jesus will destroy him with the breath of his mouth and will bring him to nothing at the appearance of his coming. The coming of the lawless one is based on satan’s working, with all kinds of false miracles, signs, and wonders, and with every #wicked deception among those who are perishing. They perish because they did not accept the #love of the truth and so be #saved. For this reason #God sends them a strong delusion so that they will believe the #lie, so that all will be #condemned — those who did not #believe the #truth but #delighted in unrighteousness.” 2 Thessalonians‬ ‭2:1-12‬ ‭CSB‬‬ #bible

“This letter is from Paul, Silas, and Timothy. We are writing to the church in Thessalonica, to you who belong to God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. May God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ give you grace and #peace. Dear brothers and sisters, we can’t help but #thank God for you, because your faith is flourishing and your #love for one another is growing. We proudly tell God’s other churches about your endurance and faithfulness in all the persecutions and hardships you are suffering. And God will use this persecution to show his justice and to make you worthy of his Kingdom, for which you are #suffering. In his justice he will pay back those who persecute you. And God will provide #rest for you who are being #persecuted and also for us when the Lord Jesus appears from heaven. He will come with his mighty angels, in flaming fire, bringing judgment on those who don’t know God and on those who refuse to obey the #GoodNews of our Lord Jesus. They will be punished with #eternal destruction, forever separated from the Lord and from his glorious power. When he comes on that day, he will receive glory from his holy people—#praise from all who believe. And this includes you, for you believed what we told you about him. So we keep on #praying for you, asking our God to enable you to live a #life worthy of his #call. May he give you the #power to accomplish all the #good things your #faith prompts you to do. Then the name of our Lord Jesus will be honored because of the way you live, and you will be honored along with him. This is all made possible because of the #grace of our #God and #Lord, #Jesus Christ." 2 Thessalonians‬ ‭1:1-12‬ ‭NLT‬‬ #bible

#Powerful people challenge me.... but my #heart trembles only at your #word. I #rejoice in your word like one who discovers a great #treasure. I hate... falsehood, but I love your instructions. I will praise you seven times a day because all your regulations are just. Those who love your instructions have great #peace and do not stumble. I long for your rescue, Lord, so I have obeyed your commands. I have obeyed your laws, for I #love them very much. Yes, I #obey your commandments and laws because you know everything I do. O #Lord, listen to my #cry; give me the discerning mind you #promised. Listen to my prayer; rescue me as you promised. Let praise flow from my lips, for you have taught me your decrees. Let my tongue sing about your word, for all your commands are right. Give me a helping hand, for I have chosen to #follow your commandments. O Lord, I have longed for your #rescue, and your instructions are my #delight. Let me live so I can #praise you, and may your regulations #help me. I have #wandered away like a #lost sheep; come and find me, for I have not #forgotten your commands.” #Psalms‬ ‭119:161-176‬ ‭NLT‬‬ #bible

“I #pray with all my #heart; #answer me, #Lord! I will #obey your decrees. I #cry out to you; rescue me, that I may obey your laws. I rise #early, before the sun is up; I cry out for help and put my #hope in your words. I stay awake through the night, thinking about your #promise. In your faithful #love, O Lord, hear my cry; let me be revived by following your regulations. Lawless people are coming to attack me; they live far from your instructions. But you are near, O Lord, and all your commands are #true. I have known from my earliest days that your laws will last #forever. Look upon my suffering and rescue me, for I have not forgotten your instructions. Argue my case...! Protect my life as you promised. The [ungodly] are far from rescue, for they do not bother with your decrees. Lord, how #great is your mercy; let me be revived by following your regulations. [Though they] persecute and #trouble me, I have not swerved from your laws. Seeing the [ungodly] makes me #sick at #heart, because they care nothing for your word. I love your commandments, Lord. [You] give back my #life because of your unfailing love. The very #essence of your words is truth; all your just regulations will stand forever.” #Psalms‬ ‭119:145-160‬ ‭NLT‬ #bible

“Your laws are #wonderful. No wonder I obey them! The teaching of your word gives #light, so even the simple can #understand. I long for your commands. Come and show me your #mercy, as you do for all who love your name. #Guide my steps by your #word, so I will not be overcome by #evil. Ransom me from oppression... then I can obey your commandments. #Look upon me with #love; teach me your decrees.... O #Lord, you are #righteous, and your regulations are #fair. Your laws are perfect and completely trustworthy. I am overwhelmed... for [those who] have disregarded your words. Your promises have been thoroughly #tested; that is why I #love them so much. I am insignificant... but I don’t #forget your commandments. Your justice is #eternal, and your instructions are perfectly #true. As #pressure and #stress bear down on me, I find #joy in your commands. Your laws are always #right; help me to #understand them so I may #live.” #Psalms‬ ‭119:129-144‬ ‭NLT‬‬ #bible

“I reject those with divided loyalties, but I #love your instructions. You are my #refuge and my shield; your #word is my source of #hope..... I intend to #obey the commands of my #God. #Lord, sustain me as you promised, that I may #live! Do not let my hope be #crushed. Sustain me, and I will be rescued; then I will #meditate continually on your decrees. But you have rejected all who stray from your decrees. They are only fooling themselves. You skim off the #wicked of the earth like scum; no wonder I love to obey your laws! I tremble in #fear of you; I stand in #awe of your regulations. Don’t leave me.... for I have done what is just and #right. Please guarantee a #blessing for me..... My eyes strain to see your #rescue, to see the #truth of your #promise fulfilled. I am your servant; deal with me in unfailing love, and #teach me your decrees. Give discernment to me, your servant; then I will understand your laws. Lord, it is #time for you to act, for people have violated your instructions. Truly, I love your commands more than gold, even the finest #gold. Each of your commandments is right. That is why I hate every #false #way.” #Psalms‬ ‭119:113-128‬ ‭NLT‬‬ #bible

I have suffered much, O Lord; #restore my life again as you promised. #Lord, accept my #offering of #praise, and #teach me your regulations.

“How I #love your #instruction! It is my meditation all #day long. Your commands make me wiser than my enemies, for they are always with me. I have more insight than all my teachers because your decrees are my #meditation. I #understand more than the elders because I #obey your precepts. I have kept my feet from every evil #path to #follow your word. I have not turned from your judgments, for you yourself have instructed me. How #sweet your #word is to my taste — sweeter than #honey in my mouth. I gain #understanding from your precepts; therefore I #hate every #false #way.” #‭‭Psalms‬ ‭119:97-104‬ ‭CSB‬‬ #bible

“I am worn out waiting for your rescue, but I have put my #hope in your word. My eyes are straining to see your #promises come true. When will you #comfort me? I am shriveled like a wineskin in the smoke, but I have not #forgotten to #obey your decrees. How long must I #wait? .... All your commands are #trustworthy. #Protect me.... I refused to #abandon your commandments. In your unfailing #love, spare my life; then I can continue to obey your laws. Your #eternal #word, O #Lord, stands firm in #heaven. Your #faithfulness extends to every generation, as enduring as the #earth you #created. Your regulations remain true to this #day, for everything serves your #plans. If your instructions hadn’t sustained me with #joy, I would have died in my #misery. I will never #forget your commandments, for by them you give me #life. I am yours; #rescue me! For I have worked hard at obeying your commandments. Though the #wicked hide along the way..., I will quietly keep my mind on your laws. Even #perfection has its limits, but your commandments have no limit.” #Psalms‬ ‭119:81-96‬ ‭NLT‬‬ #bible

#Lord, you have treated your servant well, just as you #promised. #Teach me #good #judgment and discernment, for I rely on your commands. Before I was #afflicted I went astray, but now I keep your #word. You are good, and you do what is good; teach me your statutes.
