7For as he thinks in his heart, so is he.
⇒ Proverbs 23:7 (NKJV)
27As a cage is full of birds, So their houses are full of deceit. Therefore they have become great and grown rich. 28 They have grown fat, they are sleek; Yes, they surpass the deeds of the wicked; They do not plead the cause, The cause of the fatherless; Yet they prosper, And the right of the needy they do not defend. 29 Shall I not punish them for these things?’ says the Lord. ‘Shall I not avenge Myself on such a nation as this?’
30 “An astonishing and horrible thing Has been committed in the land: 31 The prophets prophesy falsely, And the priests rule by their own power; And My people love to have it so. But what will you do in the end?
⇒ Jeremiah 5:27-31 (NIV)
“… Trouble is a blessing when it makes us stronger, and prosperity is a curse if it entices us away from God. …”
⇒ Jeremiah 24:2-10 (NIV) (Footnotes, Life Application Study Bible - Zondervan/Tyndale 2011)
“WHEN GOD TELLS YOU TO DO, YOU GET AS CLOSE AS YOU CAN DOING THE POSSIBLE, AND LEAVE IT UP TO GOD TO DO THE IMPOSSIBLE.”
