Matthew 6:34

34 Therefore do not worry for tomorrow; for tomorrow will look after its own. Sufficient for each day, is its own trouble.

Matthew 4:1-11

1 THEN Jesus was carried away by the Holy Spirit into the wilderness, to be tempted by the adversary. 2 So he fasted forty days and forty nights; but at last he was hungry. 3 And the tempter drew near and said to him, If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread. 4 But he answered and said, It is written, that it is not by bread alone that man can live, but by every word which comes from the mouth of God. 5 Then the adversary took him to the holy city, and he made him to stand up on the pinnacle of the temple. 6 And he said to him, If you are the Son of God, throw yourself down; for it is written, that he will command his angels concerning you, and they will bear you up on their hands, so that even your foot may not strike a stone. 7 Jesus said to him, Again it is written, that you shall not try out the Lord your God. 8 Again the adversary took him to a very high mountain, and he showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. 9 And he said to him, All of these I will give to you, if you will fall down and worship me. 10 Then Jesus said to him, Go away, Satan, for it is written, You shall worship the Lord your God, and him only shall you serve. 11 Then the adversary left him alone; and behold the angels drew near and ministered unto him.

Matthew 21:22

22 And everything that you will ask in prayer and believe, you shall receive.

Galatians 5:16-17

16 This I say then: Lead a spiritual life, and you shall never commit the lust of the flesh. 17 For the flesh craves that which is harmful to the Spirit, and the Spirit opposes the things of the flesh: and the two are contrary to one another, so that you are unable to do whatever you please.

Philippians 4:13

13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

Matthew 6:24-34

24 No man can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one, and like the other; or he will honor one, and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon (wealth). 25 For this reason, I say to you, Do not worry for your life, what you will eat, and what you will drink, nor for your body, what you will wear. Behold, is not life much more important than food, and the body than clothing? 26 Watch the birds of the sky, for they do not sow, neither do they harvest, nor gather into barns, and yet your Father in heaven feeds them. Are you not much more important than they? 27 Who is among you who by worrying can add one cubit to his stature? 28 Why do you worry about clothing? Observe the wild flowers, how they grow; they do not get tired out, nor do they spin. 29 But I say to you, that not even Solomon with all of his glory was covered like one of them. 30 Now if God clothes in such fashion the grass of the field, which today is and tomorrow falls into the fireplace, is he not much more to you, O you of little faith? 31 Therefore do not worry or say, What will we eat, or what will we drink, or with what will we be clothed? 32 For worldly people seek after all these things. Your Father in heaven knows that all of these things are also necessary for you. 33 But you seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all of these things shall be added to you. 34 Therefore do not worry for tomorrow; for tomorrow will look after its own. Sufficient for each day, is its own trouble.

1 Corinthians 7:35

35 I am saying this for your own benefit; I am not trying to snare or put a yoke on you, but I exhort you to be perfect before the LORD, and faithful without distraction.

Philippians 4:8

8 Finally, my brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

Luke 10:38-42

38 And it came to pass while they were journeying, he entered into a village; and a woman named Martha received him into her house. 39 And she had a sister whose name was Mary, and she came and sat at the feet of our Lord, and listened to his words. 40 But Martha was busy with many household cares, and she came and said to him, My Lord, you do not seem to care that my sister has left me to serve alone? tell her to help me. 41 Jesus answered and said to her, Martha, Martha, you are worried and excited about many things; 42 But one thing is more necessary; and Mary has chosen the good portion for herself, which shall not be taken away from her.

1 Corinthians 10:13

13 No other temptation has overtaken you but that which is common to man: but God is faithful; he will not suffer you to be tempted beyond that you are able; but will make your temptation to have a way of escape, so that you may be able to bear it.
