More Scriptures for Times of Transition: New Testament



This week’s post is a continuation from last week.  Times of transition are inherently stressful; however, by turning to the Word of God we can find comfort, relief.  Here is the link to last week’s post: Scriptures for Times of Transition.  

The verses that follow are a selection and not meant to be exhaustive.


I encourage you to meditate on these verses—letting them sink into your heart and mind.

Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.  
(Matthew 24:35 KJV)

Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.  
(Romans 15:13 KJV)

For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.
For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;
While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.
(2 Corinthians 4:16-18 KJV)

Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.  
(Philippians 4:6-7 KJV)

But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.  
(Philippians 4:19 KJV)

Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil;
Whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Jesus, made an high priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.  
(Hebrews 6:19-20 KJV)

Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.  
(Hebrews 13:8 KJV)

And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.  
(1 John 2:17 KJV)

And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us:
And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.  
(1 John 5:14-15 KJV)

My prayer is that these verses will speak to your heart and provide strength and encouragement on difficult days.  For those of us who have Jesus as Savior and Lord can see difficult days in the light of eternity.  While difficult days come; we have a glorious future awaiting us with our Savior!

Where do you find comfort in God’s Word during times of transition?

Please join with me in prayer:

Precious Lord, thank You for Your Word that contains solid truth; as we mediate on it, open our spiritual eyes to understand what You are saying to us.  Direct our attention to the Scriptures You want us to meditate upon and apply to our daily lives.  Bring to our minds all the ways You walk with us through all the transitions of life.  Remind us to keep our minds focused on You, especially when things seem to be in constant flux and we struggle to find our footing.  Open our eyes to the new possibilities, the new horizons that come from times of transition.  Thank You for the benefits that come from being Your child; may we share the Good News with those around us who desperately need to hear it.  In Jesus’ Name, we pray.  Amen.

From My Heart to Yours,

Kim
