Encouraging Bible Verses

Colossians 2:

I am contending for you that your hearts will be wrapped in the comfort of heaven and woven together into love’s fabric.

Don’t ever let worry be the one comforting your heart. Remember always that your job is to be loved by God.

This will give you access[b] to all the riches of God as you experience the revelation of God’s great mystery—Christ. For our spiritual wealth is in him, like hidden treasure waiting to be discovered—heaven’s wisdom and endless riches of revelation knowledge.

Spending time with God will always bring us back to the truth. Which in turn gives us clarity, direction, and joy.

I want you to know this so that no one will come and lead you into error[c] through their persuasive arguments and clever words. 

You cannot be lead astray when you are rooted in Gods love and Biblical truth: That we are no longer cursed, that we have been set free and healed by the stripes and blood of Jesus.

Your spiritual roots go deeply into his life as you are continually infused with strength, encouraged in every way. For you are established in the faith you have absorbed and enriched by your devotion to him![e]

You have endless strength and are always encouraged by the Holy Spirit because you are rooted in faith and love.

Beware that no one distracts you or intimidates you[f]in their attempt to lead you away from Christ’s fullness by pretending to be full of wisdom when they’re filled with endless arguments of human logic. For they operate with humanistic and clouded judgments based on the mindset of this world system, and not the anointed truths of the Anointed One.

People who have not experienced Gods love fully will always try to talk you out of being hopeful and full of faith. They are thinking as the world thinks when God tells us to have our mind set from heavens perspective.

14 He canceled out every legal violation we had on our record and the old arrest warrant that stood to indict us. He erased it all—our sins, our stained[j] soul—he deleted it all and they cannot be retrieved! Everything we once were in Adam[k] has been placed onto his cross and nailed permanently there as a public display of cancellation.

This means that we cannot “do” anything to be loved more or blessed more by God. We just accept and receive. Everything we once carried with Adam (curses, pain, confusion, debt, financial stress, bad relationships, etc) have all been nailed to the cross because that was never part of Eden.

15 Then Jesus made a public spectacle of all the powers and principalities of darkness, stripping away from them every weapon and all their spiritual authority and power[l] to accuse us. And by the power of the cross, Jesus led them around as prisoners in a procession of triumph. He was not their prisoner; they were his![m]

Imagine what that just said: The fear you have over your future, your health, your job, your home, being paraded by Jesus in a procession of triumph. Those things we fear are prisoners. They want us to coward into believing that Jesus didn’t win, that what He did wasn’t enough. They try to accuse us by saying we’re not fully loved or that only special people receive all the blessings. But Jesus bound them, took away their weapons, THEY ARE NO LONGER A THREAT. Their words have NO MEANING. We stand with Jesus as the victors.

But we receive directly from him, and his life supplies[r] vitality into every part of his body through the joining ligaments connecting us all as one. He is the divine Head who guides his body and causes it to grow by the supernatural power of God.[s]

We RECEIVE directly from him. He supplies everything we need, not us.
From the footnotes:
“The Greek word used here is epichoregeo, which interestingly can be translated as “to lead the chorus,” or “choir director.” It was used to denote a person who paid for the expenses of a Greek drama, and who supplied all their needs throughout its production. Similarly, Jesus tunes us up to heaven’s notes, and draws out of us the melody of his divine symphony. He supplies the music to us, and imparts the wisdom for us to play it under his direction. This is the artful picture of how Jesus orchestrates his body with its many members.”

1 John 3:

20 Whenever our hearts make us feel guilty and remind us of our failures, we know that God is much greater and more merciful than our conscience, and he knows everything there is to know about us.[z] 21 My delightfully loved friends, when our hearts don’t condemn us, we have a bold freedom to speak face-to-face with God. 22 And whatever we ask of him we receive,[aa] because we keep his commands. And by our beautiful intentions[ab] we continue to do what brings pleasure to him. 23 So these are his commands: that we continually place our trust in the name of his Son, Jesus Christ, and that we keep loving one another, just as he has commanded us. 

God knows our hearts intentions. Don’t let yourself stand in the way of His gift giving into your life. He was done dealing with your sins at ressurection.

Matthew 7

20 Astonished, his disciples asked, “How did you make this fig tree instantly wither and die?” 21 Jesus replied, “Listen to the truth. If YOU have NO DOUBT of GOD’S POWER and SPEAK out of FAITH’S fullness, YOU can be the ones who speak to a tree and it will wither away. Even MORE than that, you could say to this mountain, ‘Be lifted up and be thrown into the sea’ and it will be done.[n] 22 Everything you pray for with the fullness of faith you will receive!”[o]

From footnotes: “Jesus taught that if faith’s fullness lives in us, we could speak to the physical creation around us and it would respond. Faith unlocks great authority for the believer.”

John 15

But if you live in life-union with me and if my words[a] live powerfully[b] within you—then you can ask whatever you desire and it will be done.

Colossians 3

Christ’s resurrection is your resurrection too. This is why we are to yearn for all that is above, for that’s where Christ sits enthroned at the place of all power, honor, and authority![a] Yes, feast on all the treasures of the heavenly realm and fill your thoughts with heavenly realities, and not with the distractions of the natural realm. Your crucifixion[b] with Christ has severed the tie to this life, and now your true life is hidden away in God in Christ. And as Christ himself is seen for who he really is, who you really are will also be revealed, for you are now one with him in his glory!

We are to YEARN for all that is above. FEAST on all the treasures of the heavenly realm and fill your thoughts with heavenly realities. What does that mean? Heaven has no worries or fears. Heaven has no unforgiveness. Has no jealousy or judgement. Yearn for the impossible miracles of heaven. Don’t distract yourself with the limited natural realm that says life is limited or that you can never forgive someone.

10 For you have acquired new creation life which is continually being renewed into the likeness of the One who created you; giving you the full revelation of God. 11 In this new creation life, your nationality makes no difference, or your ethnicity, education, or economic status—they matter nothing. For it is Christ that means everything as he lives in every one of us![j]

This verse is saying that NO MATTER who you are, you are always becoming more and more in the likeness of Jesus. Getting full revelation of God. This means that God doesn’t set apart “special” people to receive visions, dreams, healings, blessings, spritual giftings, etc. Only the Christ in you matters.

12 You are always and dearly loved by God! So robe yourself with virtues of God, since you have been divinely chosen to be holy. 

God always, always, loves us. YOU have been CHOSEN to be HOLY.

Since we are always loved by God, we can now confidently love others. This next verse tells us HOW to robe ourselves with virtues of God.

Be merciful as you endeavor to understand others, and be compassionate, showing kindness toward all. Be gentle and humble, unoffendable in your patience with others. 13 Tolerate the weaknesses of those in the family of faith, forgiving one another in the same way you have been graciously forgiven by Jesus Christ. If you find fault with someone, release this same gift of forgiveness to them. 14 For love is supreme and must flow through each of these virtues. Love becomes the mark[k] of true maturity.[l]

We have never fully experienced the full revelation of Jesus’ ressurection until we fully know how loved we are; and in turn mature to love others without offense and with quick forgiveness.
How do we experience Gods love for us? Spend time with Him. Listen to worship music, etc. Let the revelation of the gospel sink into your heart.

15 Let your heart be always guided[m] by the peace of the Anointed One, who called you to peace as part of his one body. And always be thankful.

THIS VERSE SAYS IT ALL FOR EVERY SITUATION! Let your heart ALWAYS be guided by the Peace of Jesus. And ALWAYS be thankful.

What’s the opposite of peace? Worry, anxiousness, stress, pressure.
So what does that mean?
Don’t let worry guide you. Don’t let stress make decisions for you. Don’t let anxiousness lead you.
What’s your situation like right now? Relationship problems? Money Problems? health problems? Have peace and be thankful. We start having peace by FIRST being thankful that what Jesus did on the cross is enough.

I hope these verses helped you and I will continue adding to them as I find more 🙂
