During my quiet time with God, I often write down scriptures that stand out to me. Sometimes I search for scriptures related to a specific theme, other times I start with one scripture and then meander through the Bible as the Spirit flows.
Today was one of those days where the scriptures I recorded were not directly related, but all seem to be loosely themed encouraging scriptures about abundance and compassion.
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.John 10:10
“For the one whom God has sent speaks the words of God, for God gives the Spirit without limit.” John 3:34
“And he passed in front of Moses, proclaiming, ‘The Lord, the Lord, the compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness,” Exodus 35:6
In him was life, and that life was the light of men.John 1:4

The Lord replied, “My presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.” Exodus 33:14
“And the Lord said, ‘I will cause all my goodness to pass in front of you, and I will proclaim my name, the Lord, in your presence. I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion.’ ”Exodus 33:19
“I will bless her with abundant provisions; her poor will I satisfy with food.” Psalm 132:15
“Those who sow in tears will reap with songs of joy.” Psalm 126:5
For if, by the trespass of one man, death reigned through that one man, how much more will those who receive God’s abundant provision of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ.Romans 5:17
“For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.” John 3:17
