Having a good Bible verse can help you to keep your focus and remind yourself that God is in control and that everything is in His hands. It can also keep you motivated to do the right things, and even help you to remember that everything you do is a gift from God.
God is not mocked
‘God is not mocked’ is a Bible verse that most preachers would have you believe is true. In reality, however, it is a mere veiled threat.
In fact, the Bible is filled with references to God being mocked. In many cases, it was the enemy of God who did it. And it has continued today, particularly against believers.
The psalmist describes mocking as a way to discredit God. In fact, many of the people who mocked Jesus also acted in a way to discredit God.
But what does it mean to mock God? It means ignoring or disregarding him.
If you are ignoring God, it is a good idea to ask yourself, “Is there a better way to live?” You will find that the answer is a resounding “yes.” But to mock God is to deny his existence.
God is the creator and controller of everything
Throughout the Bible, we learn that God is the creator and controller of everything. He created the universe from scratch, and has a great deal of control over everything that occurs in nature. The Bible teaches that God is sovereign over all things, which is why we can trust Him with our lives.
Although it may seem like God is just a figment of our imagination, it is true that he is a powerful being. His power is unmatched by anyone else. He created all of the elements that make up the universe and controls them in perfect harmony. His power is displayed in the most basic of ways.
God is not only the creator and controller of everything, but he also has a great deal of control over all of human history. He has been in control of every great world leader, and He has also dethroned many rulers.
God is the source of wisdom
Throughout Scripture, God is portrayed as the source of wisdom. In fact, the New Testament makes an explicit claim to the wisdom of Christ. Theologians describe God as the omniscient.
God is also called “the wisdom of God” and “the knowledge of God” (Psalms 111:10; 1 Corinthians 1:24; Philippians 3:17; James 3:15; 1 Timothy 4:13; 2 Timothy 3:15; Hebrews 3:2). The word wisdom refers to knowledge and skillfulness. The wisdom of God is infinite.
God is also described as the source of wisdom in Luke 11:49. Christ is “the wisdom of God”. His wisdom, according to Paul, is “eternal” and “uncreated”. It is a personification of God’s eternal and triune identity. The Holy Spirit reveals God’s wisdom.
The word wisdom is also used to refer to God’s creative act in creating the universe. God knows everything that has ever happened, and is able to synthesize data from every possible field of experience. This information is used to reach the best outcome.
Keep God in your heart
Having a positive outlook on life and having motivational Bible verses to use in difficult times can be a tremendous help. In difficult times, we need to know that God is with us and that he will protect us. God’s Word should be saturating in our heart and mind.
One of the best Bible verses to use for motivation in hard times is Psalm 55:22. It says to “turn to the Lord in times of trouble.” This verse shows us how we can trust in God when we are afraid. This is because God knows us better than we know ourselves. He knows what is best for us and He will lead us in the right direction.
Another great Bible verse to use for motivation is Romans 12:11-12. It encourages us to work hard and to do all for the Lord’s glory.
Remind yourself that everything is in God’s control
Luckily for us, God has a hand in every aspect of our lives. Despite what we may think, God has always been in control of the big and the small. He has even been known to use the small stuff to bless and glorify His children. In fact, the Bible is littered with stories of God’s goodness, including a few that will make you cry tears of joy.
The best part is that God has not only been gracious, but has also blessed us with opportunities we could have never imagined. The Lord of the Rings and the Bible are only two examples. He has also used us to bless and transform those who were not so fortunate. His name is not on the dotted line, but His goodness and His grace are.
