“We worship God through his Spirit, and our pride is Christ Jesus. We do not put trust in ourselves or anything we can do” (Philippians 3:3)

“The person who trusts in the Lord will be blessed. The Lord will show him that he can be trusted. He will be strong, like a tree planted near water that sends its roots by a stream. It is not afraid when the days are hot; its leaves are always green. It does not worry in a year when no rain comes; it always produces fruit” (Jeremiah 17:7-8)

“When I am afraid, I will trust you. I praise God for his word. I trust God so I am not afraid. What can human beings do to me?” (Psalm 56:3-4)

“Do not let anyone treat you as if you are unimportant because you are young. Instead, be an example to the believers with your words, your actions, your love, your faith, and your pure life” ( 1 Timothy 4:12)

“You have begun to live the new life, in which you are being made new and are becoming like the One who made you. This new life brings you the true knowledge of God. In the new life there is no difference between Greeks and Jews…or those who are foreigners, or Scythians. There is no difference between slaves and free people. But Christ is in all believers, and Christ is all that is important.” ( Colossians 3:10-11)

“People should think of us as servants of Christ, the ones God has trusted with his secrets. Now in this way those who are trusted with something valuable must show they are worth of that trust. As for myself, I do not care if I am judged by you or by any human court. I do not even judge myself…The Lord is the One who judges me” (1 Corinthians 4:1-4)

“When a believing person prays, great things happen” (James 5:16)

“With God’s power working in us, God can do much, much more than anything we can ask or imagine “ (Ephesians 3:20)

“I tell you to believe that you have receiver the things you ask for in prayer, and God will give them to you.” (Mark 11:24)

Don’t reduce these powerful passages to the simple earthly requests of new cars, paychecks and earthly wealth. Don’t limit the promise to selfish perks and favors. The fruit that God assures is far greater than promotions and proposals. His dreams are far greater than anything you can imagine. He wants you to be free of sin, fear, death, pain and much more. These are the prayers he will answer

“For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows favor and honor; no good thing does he withhold from those whose walk is blameless” (Psalm 84:11)

“Since we have these promises, dear friends, let us purify ourselves from everything that contaminates body and spirit, perfecting holiness out of reverence for God” (2 Corinthians 7:1)

“He chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love he predestined us to be adopted as his sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his his pleasure and will – to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves” (Ephesians 1:4-6)
