SCRIPTURE VERSES FOR THE MILITARY AND THEIR LOVED ONES

ANGER James 1:19,20

 

 

Ephesians 4:31,32

My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, because human anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires.

 

Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.

COMFORT Nahum 1:7

 

Matthew 11:28

The LORD is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in him,

 

Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.

COURAGE Joshua 1:9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.
DEATH Psalm 23:4

 

 

Romans 8:38,39

Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.

 

For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

ENEMIES Psalms37:40

 

 

Proverbs 3:25,26

The LORD helps them and delivers them; he delivers them from the wicked and saves them, because they take refuge in him.

 

Have no fear of sudden disaster or of the ruin that overtakes the wicked, for the LORD will be at your side and will keep your foot from being snared.

ETERNAL LIFE John 3:16,17  For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.
FAITH 1 Cor. 16:13

 

Heb. 12:1,2

Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong.

 

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

GOD’S

Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.

And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.

What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived—the things God has prepared for those who love him—

OBEDIENCE Romans 8:28
