Joyful are people of integrity who follow the instructions of the Lord. Joyful are those who obey his laws and search for him with all their hearts. (Psalms 119:1-2)

And Jesus said, “For judgment I came into this world, so that those who do not see may see, and that those who see may become blind” (John 9:39).
The omniscient (all knowing) and omnipotent (all powerful), God who cannot lie has promised to always be with you... no matter what! If this does not make you feel safe and secure- nothing will.
Weaknesses are good because they cause us to turn to the Lord, to rely on Him and His power and grace, rather than our own. Is that not divinely good??! Isn't it good to be "helped" in getting out of the way??! So thanks to God is in order! Thus, we embrace our weaknesses.
Satan despises forgiveness. It’s one of the reasons why he has rejected God’s salvation, himself. In the realm of spiritual death, there is no notion of forgiveness. A forgiving heart is a godly heart, something Satan hates. (ref: Jn 8:44)
A forgiving heart is a godly one. It’s impossible to fellowship with another person if we persist in unforgiveness. Imagine if God’s forgiveness were incomplete - how would we ever fellowship with Him for all of eternity???
Pray without ceasing (1 Thessalonians 5:17).
Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness;
Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! (Isaiah 5:20)
"Teach me your ways, O LORD, that I may live according to your truth! Grant me purity of heart, so that I may honor you." - Psalm 86:11 (NLT)
"Therefore brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your toil is not in vain in the Lord." (1 Co 15:58)
"For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh, for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses." (2 Co 10:3-4)
