The "Let Verses"

Let! That's one of the most powerful words in the English language.  It urges consent.    This word "Let" is used in the Bible repeatedly.  The "let verses" cover practically every mandate in the Christian life.

Here is a few:

1 John 4:7 - Let us love one another.

Hebrews 12:2 - Let us fix our eyes on Jesus.

Colossians 4:6 - Let your conversation be always full of grace.

Do a personal Bible study on this simple, wonderful, powerful word.  Look up the verse, meditate on it, and ask God to make it real in your life.

Promises About Our Caring Heavenly Father

Jesus said, "Do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' ... Your heavenly Father knows that you need them.  But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well."  Matthew 6:31-33

Jesus said, "Whoever acknowledges me before men, I will also acknowledge him before my Father in heaven."  Matthew 10:32

He is our God and we are the people of his pasture, the flock under his care.  Psalm 95:7

God will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.  Psalm 91:4

Our Caring Heavenly Father

Matthew tells us, "Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them.  Are you not much more valuable than they?" (Matthew 6:26). 

Our heavenly Father provides for the birds.  What a lovely thought; he, too, is a bird-watcher.  And to think his care and provision for us is even greater, for he is a people watcher, too.  How comforting.

Promises About Focusing on God

Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable -- if anything is excellent or praise worthy -- think about such things.  Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me -- put it into practice.  And the God of peace will be with you.  Philippians 4:8-9

I will put my laws in their minds and write them on their hearts.  I will be their God, and they will be my people, " says the Lord.  Hebrews 8:10

Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things ... When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.  Colossians 3:2,4
