Have you felt your relationship with God become ever more estranged as time goes by?
Fast-paced life makes our mind occupied with all kinds of people, things, and events, and it gives us little time to quiet ourselves before God, to get close to God, and to contemplate Him. Gradually, our hearts become ever more estranged from God and our faith grows cold. Actually, to build a proper relationship with God, giving our hearts to God is of the utmost importance. We need to pray more often to God, often read God’s words, miss His love and grace. In this way, we’ll be moved by God’s Spirit unknowingly and live always before God. Here are 15 Bible verses that will help you be quiet before God and remind you of the power of faith so that you can restore a normal relationship with God.
Understanding the Power of Faith Over Fear and Worry
Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
1 Peter 5:6-7
Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: Casting all your care on him; for he cares for you.
Peace I leave with you, my peace I give to you: not as the world gives, give I to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
The righteous cry, and the LORD hears, and delivers them out of all their troubles. The LORD is near to them that are of a broken heart; and saves such as be of a contrite spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivers him out of them all.
Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD your God, he it is that does go with you; he will not fail you, nor forsake you.
Surely he shall not be moved for ever: the righteous shall be in everlasting remembrance. He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed, trusting in the LORD. His heart is established, he shall not be afraid, until he see his desire on his enemies.
2 Timothy 1:7
For God has not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
But they that wait on the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
Remembering the Lord Loves and Cares for You
What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? 32He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
Trust in the LORD with all your heart; and lean not to your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct your paths.
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
Fear you not; for I am with you: be not dismayed; for I am your God: I will strengthen you; yes, I will help you; yes, I will uphold you with the right hand of my righteousness.
But God commends his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
But you, O Lord, are a God full of compassion, and gracious, long suffering, and plenteous in mercy and truth.
For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
