All is Calm, All is Bright | Week 1 | Nov 28 Speaker Shannon Miller

2 TIMOTHY 1:6-7 (NKJV) 

THEREFORE I REMIND YOU TO STIR UP THE GIFT OF GOD WHICH IS IN YOU THROUGH THE LAYING ON OF MY HANDS. FOR GOD HAS NOT GIVEN US A SPIRIT OF FEAR, BUT OF POWER AND OF LOVE AND OF A SOUND MIND.  

ROMANS 12:2 (GNT) 

DO NOT CONFORM YOURSELVES TO THE STANDARDS OF THIS WORLD, BUT LET GOD TRANSFORM YOU INWARDLY BY A COMPLETE CHANGE OF YOUR MIND. 

THEN YOU WILL BE ABLE TO KNOW THE WILL OF GOD - WHAT IS GOOD AND IS PLEASING TO HIM AND IS PERFECT.  

1 CORINTHIANS 2:9 (NKJV) 

BUT AS IT IS WRITTEN: "EYE HAS NOT SEEN, NOR EAR HEARD, NOR HAVE ENTERED INTO THE HEART OF MAN THE THINGS WHICH GOD HAS PREPARED FOR THOSE WHO LOVE HIM."  

1 CORINTHIANS 2:9 (GNT) 

HOWEVER, AS THE SCRIPTURE SAYS, "WHAT NO ONE EVER SAW OR HEARD, WHAT NO ONE EVER THOUGHT COULD HAPPEN, IS THE VERY THING GOD PREPARED FOR THOSE WHO LOVE HIM.”  

HEBREWS 11:1 (NKJV) 

NOW FAITH IS THE SUBSTANCE OF THINGS HOPED FOR, THE EVIDENCE OF THINGS NOT SEEN.  

HEBREWS 11:1 (AMP) 

NOW FAITH IS THE ASSURANCE (TITLE DEED, CONFIRMATION) OF THINGS HOPED FOR (DIVINELY GUARANTEED), AND THE EVIDENCE OF THINGS NOT SEEN [THE CONVICTION OF THEIR REALITY— FAITH COMPREHENDS AS FACT WHAT CANNOT BE EXPERIENCED BY THE PHYSICAL SENSES].  

1 PET 2:9-10 (NKJV) 

BUT YOU ARE A CHOSEN GENERATION, A ROYAL PRIESTHOOD, A HOLY NATION, HIS OWN SPECIAL PEOPLE, THAT YOU MAY PROCLAIM THE PRAISES OF HIM WHO CALLED YOU OUT OF DARKNESS INTO HIS MARVELOUS LIGHT; 

But you, dear friends, must build each other up in your most holy faith, pray in the power of the Holy Spirit, 

and await the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ, who will bring you eternal life. In this way, you will keep yourselves safe in God’s love. And you must show mercy to those whose faith is wavering. Rescue others by snatching them from the flames of judgment. Show mercy to still others, but do so with great caution, hating the sins that contaminate their lives. Now all glory to God, who is able to keep you from falling away and will bring you with great joy into his glorious presence without a single fault. All glory to him who alone is God, our Savior through Jesus Christ our Lord. All glory, majesty, power, and authority are his before all time, and in the present, and beyond all time! Amen.
