From Handbook to Renewal

The Attributes of God 

The Lord will guard the feet of His saints, but the wicked will be silenced in darkness. It is not by strength that one prevails; those who contend with the Lord will be shattered. He will thunder against them from heaven; the Lord will judge the ends of the earth. He will give strength to His king and exalt the horn of His anointed. (1 Samuel 2:910)

You have sworn by Yourself; the word has gone out of Your mouth in righteousness and will not return. Every knee will bow before You, and every tongue will acknowledge You. (Isaiah 45:23)

The Works of God

The Lord God will swallow up death forever, and He will wipe away the tears from all faces; He will remove the reproach of His people from all the earth. For the Lord has spoken. And it will be said in that day, “Behold, this is our God; we have waited for Him, and He will save us. This is the Lord, we have trusted in Him; let us rejoice and be glad in His salvation.” (Isaiah 25:89)

You will create new heavens and a new earth. The former things will not be remembered, nor will they come to mind. (Isaiah 65:17)

My Relationship to God 

How great is Your goodness, which You have stored up for those who fear You, which You have prepared for those who take refuge in You before the sons of men! (Psalm 31:19)

You know how I am formed; You remember that I am dust. As for man, his days are like grass; he flourishes like a flower of the field. The wind passes over it and it is gone, and its place remembers it no more. But the lovingkindness of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear Him, and His righteousness with their children’s children, to those who keep His covenant and remember to obey His precepts. (Psalm 103:1418)

The Character I Want to Cultivate 

The fear of man brings a snare, but he who trusts in the Lord is set on high. (Proverbs 29:25)

Cursed is the one who trusts in man, who depends on flesh for his strength and whose heart turns away from the Lord. But blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in Him. (Jeremiah 17:5, 7)

My Relationship to Others 

A virtuous wife is the crown of her husband, but she who causes shame is like decay in his bones. (Proverbs 12:4)

Who can find a virtuous wife? She is worth far more than jewels. The heart of her husband trusts in her so that he has no lack of gain. She brings him good, not harm, all the days of her life. (Proverbs 31:1012)
