Bible verses about god’s kindness

bible verses about god’s kindness: Hello and welcome to my blog where I talk about Bible verses and Christianity. I love Jesus so much and just want to show people God’s kindness to us. Check out my blog for more info! There are a lot of Bible verses about God’s kindness that we can draw upon for strength and encouragement during any stressful situation. 

1 John 4:4-5 says, “You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world. They are from the world and therefore speak from the viewpoint of the world, and the world listens to them.” The Truth is that our own thoughts, feelings, emotions and desires make us susceptible to deception. The Bible tells us in Romans 12:2 that we must not be conformed to this sinful world but be transformed by the renewing of our minds through understanding and obedience to God’s Word. It’s time for us to take a stand for truth with the Word of God in hand!
