Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.
~ Joshua 1:9
“I sought the LORD, and He answered me; and delivered me from all my fears. Those who look to Him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame. This poor man called, and the LORD heard him; He saved him out of all his troubles. The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear Him, and He delivers them. Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him. Fear the LORD, you His saints, for those who fear Him lack nothing. The lions may grow weak and hungry, but those who seek the LORD lack no good thing.”
~ Psalm 34:4-11
Whoever of you loves life and desires to see many good days, keep your tongue from evil and your lips from speaking lies. Turn from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it.
~ Psalm 34:12-15
Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be men of courage; be strong. Do everything in love.
~ 1 Corinthians 16:13
The fear of the LORD teaches a man wisdom [fn: Wisdom teaches the fear of the LORD], and humility comes before honor.
~ Proverbs 15:33
I will lie down and sleep in peace, for you alone, O LORD, make me dwell in safety.
~ Psalm 4:8
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.
~ Philippians 4:8
Note: This is the Sunday Scripture post for March. Normally, I’d publish on the first Sunday of the month, but this is being posted a week early as I have a different post planned for Sunday, March 6th.
All of today’s images are etchings by French artist Gustave Doré. Doré’s 200+ Bible illustrations are some of the most brilliant interpretations of these classic stories, skillfully executed by a true master. Images are: Jesus and the Woman of Samaria; David and Goliath; Jesus Healing the Sick; Isaac Blessing Jacob; Jesus Walking on the Water; and the header image is Samson Slaying the Lion.
