Identity: We are made in God’s image (Gen 1:26), His workmanship (Eph 2:10), as a spirit with a soul in a body (1Th 5:23). God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power, love and a sound mind (2 Tim 1:7). Have faith in God (Mk 11:22), He loved the world and gave His only Son, and whoever believes in Him will have eternal life (Jn 3:16). The Spirit of the Lord is liberty (2Cor 3:17). We have power in our thoughts (Pro 21:5, 2Cor 10:5), words (Pro 18:21), and actions (Pro 10:4). Knowledge is better than gold and wisdom is better than jewels (Pro 8:10-11). The Bible is from God (2Tim 3:16).
Our Headquarters (head & heart): Knowledge is power (Pro 24:5), the humble have wisdom (Pro 11:2). Guard your thoughts (2Cor 10:5). Knowledge should govern desires (Pro 19:2). Do not conform to the world, but be transformed by renewing your mind (Ro 12:2). Think on what is honorable, just, pure, lovely, commendable, and practice them (Php 4:8).

The heart can be selfish (Mark 7:21-22). God can give us a new heart and spirit (Ez 36:26). Keep God’s word in an honest and good heart, and be patient for results (Lk 8:15).
God’s Intent for Us: Who exalts themselves will be humbled, and who humbles themselves will be exalted (Mt 23:12). God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble, and will exalt the humble in due time (1 Pt 5:5-6). Do not despise small beginnings (Zech 4:10). Always rejoice, pray constantly, give thanks in all circumstances (1Th 5:16-18), and be content in all situations (Php 4:11). Sanctify ourselves, control our bodies, love, and work (1Th 4:3-12 & Jn 17:17).
Circumstances (guarantees in life include opportunities, challenges, and choices):
Truth: Truth helps us use time wisely (Ecc 8:5). The truth will set you free (Jn 8:32). Speak the truth in love (Eph 4:15). God hates arrogance, lies, murder, people who make wicked plans, who are quick to cause trouble, a false witness, and those who encourage conflict (Pro 6:16-19). God’s anger is against the unrighteous who suppress truth (Ro 1:18).
Time: Prioritize and make the best use of time (Eph 5:16), tomorrow is unknown (Jas 4:14). A diligent business person will stand before kings (Pro 22:29). The hand of the diligent will rule (12:24). Walk in wisdom around those who are without, redeeming the time (Col 4:5). Teach us to number our days so we apply our hearts to wisdom (Ps 90:12).

Emotions and Thoughts: God gave us a spirit of power, love and a sound mind (2Tim 1:7). Be quick to hear, slow to speak, and slow to anger (Jas 1:19). Being slow to anger gives understanding (Pro 14:29). Don’t fear (Ps 23:4) or be anxious (Mt 6:34). Faith, hope, and love abide (1Cor 13:13). The wise are cautious, and the foolish are careless (Pro 14:16). A cool spirit gives understanding (Pro 17:27). Share reasonable emotions (Ro 12:15). What we focus on determines who we are (Mt 6:22). Think on important topics (Php 4:8). Discern good from evil (Heb 5:14).
Money: Wisdom is better, and more beneficial, than wealth (Pro 3:13-18). Life is not in possessions (Lk 12:15). Better are the poor with integrity, than the rich without integrity (Pro 28:6). The rich rule over the poor and the borrower serves the lender (Pro 22:7). Diligent thoughts and hands bring abundance and wealth (Pro 21:5 and Pro 10:4).

Holy Trinity: God is over all, through all, and in all (Eph 4:6). Our help comes from the Lord (Psa 121:2), and all things are possible with God (Mk 10:27). There are many things God hates (Pro 6:16). Jesus is the way, truth, and life (Jn 14:6). Jesus said, He came to give life (Jn 10:10), and He overcome the world (Jn 16:33). Greater is the Holy Spirit in us, than us in the world (1Jn 4:4). The Holy Spirit is our helper (Jn 14:26). The Spirit of the Lord includes liberty (2Cor 3:17).

Other People: Love God and love others (Mt 22:37-40). Greater love has no one, than to lay down their life for their friends (Jn 15:13, Pro 18:24). Love others through action and truth (1 Jn 3:18). Think for yourself and speak truth in love (Eph 4:15). Help others as you have opportunity (Gal 6:10). Hate stirs up anger, but love covers offenses (Pro 10:12).
Our Flesh: Desires of the flesh are a daily concern because they are against the desires of the Spirit (Gal 5:16-17), and the flesh wars against the soul (1Pt 2:11). The desires of the flesh include; lust, idolatry, witchcraft, anger, jealousy, division, murder, and drunkenness (Gal 5:19). Pride (Pr 11:2) and foolishness (Mt 25:1-13) also work against people.
The World: God gave all humans free will (Gen 1:28). Woe to those who cause offenses (Mt 18:7). The world promotes desires of the flesh and eyes, and pride (1Jn 2:16). We will have trouble in the world (Jn 16:33), but you are a light in the world (Mt 5:14), go and share the Gospel (Mk 16:15), but don’t judge those who don’t believe it (Jn 12:47).
Other Forces: We struggle against different levels of wicked spiritual adversaries (Eph 6:12). Our adversary is the devil (1Pt 5:8) who tempts (Mt 4:3, Gen 3:1-5), lies (Jn 8:44), dissuades (2 Cor 4:4), deceives and accuses (Rev 12:9-10). So he can steal (fruit of the Spirit, fellowship, and freedom), kill (body), and destroy (legacy) (Jn 10:10). The devil can disguise himself (2Cor 11:14-15), and cause suffering (Job 1 and 2). Our best offense and defense is in Jesus (Jn 10:10).
Have faith in God (Mk 11:22), love God and others (Mt 22:37-40), and fellowship with the Holy Triune and others (Acts 2:42, 1Cor 1:9, 2Cor 13:14, 1Jn 1:3). Submit to God and resist the devil (Jas 4:7). Walk in the Spirit and resist the flesh (Gal 5:16-26). Walk out our calling (1 Cor 7:17, Eph 4:1), and sanctify ourselves (Jn 17:17, 1Th 5:23). Proclaim the gospel (Mk 16:15), make disciples (Mt 28:19), and do everything for the glory of God (Col 3:17, 3:23, 1Cor 10:31, Ro 15:5-7).
Key Forces & Focus: One God of all, above all, through all, and in all (Eph 4:6). God’s ways are higher than ours (Isa 55:9). The heart of man plans his way but the Lord establishes his steps (Pro 16:9). Do not be distracted, God enlisted us (2Tim 2:4). Submit to God (Jas 4:7). Respect authority (Ro 13:1-4) and pray for authority (1Tim 2:1-2). Walk as the light of the Lord and discern the Lord’s will (Eph 5:8-10), pray constantly (Ro 12:12), confess (1Jn 1:9), repent (Acts 2:38), and forgive (Mk 11:25). Trust and acknowledge the Lord and He will guide us (Pr 3:5-6) and bless us (Jer 17:7). Wait for the Lord and He will renew our strength (Isa 40:31). Diligent thoughts and actions lead to plenty (Pro 10:4 & 21:5).

Know: (Pro 1:5-7). We are of the household of God (Eph 2:19). Know God’s word (Pr 3:1). God is slow to anger, and plentiful in steadfast love (Neh 9:17). God’s love endures (Ps 136) and nothing can separate us from it (Ro 8:37-39). Who does not love does not know God (1Jn 4:8). Love is patient and kind, not envious or boastful (1Cor 13). Attitudes are contagious (Pro 15:1). Seek wise counsel (Pr 24:6). We can ask God for wisdom (Jas 1:5). The Lord is our fortress, deliverer (Ps 91), and avenger (1Th 4:6). We can do all things through Christ (Ph 4:13). We are saved by grace not works (Eph 2:8). Sin is an obstacle between us and God (Isa 59:2).

Stand and put on the belt of truth, breastplate of righteousness, shoes of the gospel, shield of faith, helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit (Eph 6:14-17). The Holy Spirit can guide and comfort us (Jn 14:26, Acts 9:31). Walk in the light (1Jn 1:7) and in newness of Spirit (Ro 7:6). We should supplement our faith with virtue, knowledge, temperance, patience, godliness, kindness and love (2Pt 1:5). Fruit of the Spirit includes love, joy and peace (Gal 5:22). Faith is assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen (Heb 11:1). As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord (Jos 24:15).

Within the covers of the Bible are the answers for all the problems men face (Ronald Reagan).
The bond of our common humanity is stronger than the divisiveness of our fears and prejudices. God gives us the capacity for choice. We can choose to alleviate suffering. We can choose to work together for peace. We can make these changes — and we must (Jimmy Carter, Nobel Speech).
