Scriptures Against Depression – Scriptures Against Worry – New Testament Scriptures on Faith & Believing – Do God’s Promises Cover What You Want?
Our fathers sinned, and are no more;
It is we who have borne their iniquities.
— Lamentations 5:7
Before anyone mentions Gal 3:13 yes Jesus became a curse for us BUT we must appropriate and take possession of the gift. It’s not automatic. It’s waiting for you. How did you get saved? You took an action. You invited Jesus in to your heart and asked Him to be your Savior…
Sin was dealt with at the Cross. Rest in what Jesus did for you there. Receive that finished work. You are not responsible or be held accountable for the sins of your father and when you trust in Jesus to take away your sins, He declares you not guilty, not even holding your sins against you. Focus on the Cross and not sin.
Has anyone considered generations curses? All the bells have been rung. Can’t get prayer answered, nothing changes, can’t get a victory, always waiting for the shoe to fall.. Read Det. 28. Lev 26: 40-44 is how you break it. How about the 66 biblical curses?? Biggest causes Idolatry, occult involvement, witchcraft, and if you hold ANY unforgiveness toward ANYONE you will get nothing from God. Yes this is all scriptural. Look it up.
My adult daughter has not spoken to me in 7 years. I love her dearly. I have tried everything. Apologized for anything and everything I could have done to cause this. I have sent cards, gifts, sweet pics of us together. She will not respond. I have prayed and prayed. I’m losing faith and hope. The pain is unbearable. Please pray for me and my daughter Jacqueline.
Would you please pray for my mom Helen . She is a believer . She fell Nov.7 and broke her femur bone. She was I the hospital for two weeks and now she is in a nursing home.She is afraid to stand up and try to walk because she thinks she will fall. We can’t get in to be with her because of covid restrictions. She is almost 91yr. But she still has her mind. It is so sad for all of us not being with her. Please pray that she will be set free from all the fear and that the Lord will give her the strength to begin walking so we can bring her back home.I know that with God all things are possible.
Yes, Linda. I will.
I am praying for you and your mom Helen!
I just wanted to remind everyone of how happy the trees were when the giants left. They thought they would not be cut down anymore. But now Man has took their place in cutting them down. I should ask Christ About it, for something pulls me in that thought of even how the trees were deceived again, this time by Man. I think this is a sad thing. I think it has so much meaning. Hopelessness is Defeat, DO NOT LEAVE ME ALONE AND WALLOW IN YOUR SELF PITY ! FIGHT LIKE A WARRIOR FOR YOUR SOUL ! May Christ Almighty Keep You And Your Houses Always ~KMS~
My name is Fannie Beamer some time I it depressed in it not a good feeling about that and I worry a lot with health and financial difficult. I backslide, but I’m not drinking alcohol or doing drugs,or selling drugs or gambling or doing other things that I used to do in my pass. But my enemies and some of my family members and friend they always trying to put me down saying I’m never going to be nothing or they doesn’t see know future in me it doesn’t matter what I do they putting me down. That what I need healing in. I want God to heal me from worry about what my family, friend and my enemies think of me.
Jenny, I’m glad God blesses you. He doesn’t bless me. He allows complete misery towards me and never helps me in time of need. It’s like I’m not allowed any joy in anything. Every time I smile or laugh or show any happiness something bad happens. I can’t take anymore, but bad stuff keeps happening. Every day. I am hopeless in this bad world. I hate it and everybody in it. I want to die just for it to be over. To make it stop hurting me. I’m tired of crying to God with no relief whatsoever. Bible verses do not help a broken hopeless person. Especially when nothing ever changes for the good. Only gets worse. I have no desire to live anymore. There is nothing anybody can do to change or help my situation. Only God can and He refuses me. You can say He loves me all you want but I know He don’t really care. I used to believe and trust that it will get better someday. But after 25 yrs a person just gives up hope. You’re probably going to say, God isn’t doing all the bad stuff. It’s Satan or demons that steal, kill and destroy. I know it is. I know it. But see, God does help me nor does he care that I am almost to the point of suicide. So what kind of answer do you have that can help me.
Lisa, I love you. GOD loves you. The person you are describing is not GOD, The enemy is the one deceiving you with feelings about GOD that are not true. The beautiful smile, and the joy you mentioned having, that lights up everyone’s day is from GOD. James 1:17 tells us. Your hurt is real. Your pain is real. GOD is your FATHER. HE can help you. Please email me: email@example.com. I would love to talk or listen to you.

Hi Ken glad to hear your testimony it helps me their is hope for me now foud site thx
I have been trying to find Jesus/God the way you are talking about for so long that I get myself wondering if that faith realy does exist without wanting to.
I do belive and dont want to stop beliving I just dont allways know how and what Im doing wrong to not deserve finding that kind of relationship.
Pray and talk to God as you would your worldly father. Spend time in His word and really read the Bible. If you have problems with the KJV the try NKJ or the NIV and pray as you read and before long you will feel as though you know the people of the bible and you will understand God and why He loves us so much that He sent HIs only son Jesus to die for our sins. He loves you and wants a relationship with you, you merely have to talk to Him, as you drive, clean house or at work. Sing praise songs to him and you will feel His presence with you and you will feel His Love.
Not sure if you have ever been given the good news about what God has done for us by giving us Jesus. He loves you. I just wanted you to know. We were never meant to make it alone in this world. I’m glad you are looking for a good church. The body of Christ isn’t perfect but we are meant to be with them for love and support. I hope you find a good body of believers to be with. There is a book called Right and Wrong thinking by Kenneth E. Hagin. He is one of the great men of faith of this century that has already gone on home to be with the Lord. If you read and study God’s word especially in the epistles, which are the books after Matthew Mark Luke and John, you will learn who you are in Christ, and the benefits there are for those that accept Jesus as our Lord and saviour. When I found the Lord I was hopeless, and devastated. I found Him in my room alone at night. I started calling on his name asking him for help and telling him I wanted to give him my life, because I just couldn’t fix my life or really do anything about my situation. His presence came into the room in an incredible way, and I knew I had found my true Father, and my true saviour. I knew Iw as loved and forgiven. That was 40 years ago this August. Ever since that day, He has helped me learn to depend on Him, and has taken me from the bottom of the barrel, to an incredible life in Him. For once in my life I belonged to someone who I knew would never let me down. For once I really knew I was loved for who I am, with all my faults, my sins and shortcomings. He died for me and loved me when I felt like everyone’s thrown away trash. I had a sense of family and belonging I never felt before. I have lived my life trying to thank him and love him because He is the one who gave me my worth. After that night He led me to books on the book rack at the grocery store to a man named Kenneth E. Hagin. He found God on a bed of sickness when he was 17 years old, and died twice and was bedridden for 16 months. He started reading God’s word and eventually found the faith in God’s word and began to believe God would heal him. And God did heal him. He has written so many books, and there are u tube videos out now. He was a true man of faith that walked this earth like Jesus did. God used him to heal, deliver, and help thousands of people. I still love Him even though I never met Him. I consider him my grandfather in the faith because He really walked like Jesus did. But t he most important thing you can do, and the key to life is this: After you have repented to god for all your sins, and accepted Jesus as your Lord and saviour, you will be forgiven. Not only that but God’s word says you will be a new creation. God will make you into a new man. The old will pass away and all things will become new. Life won’t all of a sudden be free from trials, but you will have a helper, a comforter, a lead a guide, the Holy Spirit who will take up residence in your heart and help you in everything you do. Then when you read God’s word, he will enlighten it to you and it will help you to overcome every situation. Also for me the other key besides God’s word, is spending time worshipping and singing to Him. A time when you just try and bless Him, after a while you will sense His presence all around you, and peace will come and you will begin to know Him, not only through God’s word, the Bible, but experientially by his presence.
My favorite scripture says “and this is eternal life, that we may know Him”. When you accept Him and give him your heart and life you will have eternal life. But He wants it to begin today, experiencing His love, his care His presence, His strength, His hope, His benefits, His healing, spirit soul and body and mind. He doesn’t want you poor. He wants you blessed. He died for you so that you could be reconciled to the Father. He is your true Father in this world, he is your true friend, your true family. I am speaking from what He has done for me over the last forty years. I hope you find Him Joshua and all he has done for you through shedding his blood. He cares for you enough to die so that you can live in the abundant life and love He meant for you to have.
God bless you. His word says “ If you search for me, you will find me if you search for me with all your heart. There is always Hope in God.
In God’s love,
