Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life? And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. …
Success Bible Verses About Achieving Goals
God never intended for us to walk through life alone. God has always been about raising up a people who would support each other and bless those around them. Here we see what that looks like. These verses remind us of the importance of support and faithfulness, and to look for God’s provision in our relationships.
1 Samuel 16:7
But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The Lord does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”
Saul, Israel’s first king, is an utter failure. God rejects him and sends his prophet Samuel to anoint the new king he has chosen. Samuel is to go to Bethlehem and invite a man named Jesse to the sacrifice. When Samuel sees Jesse’s strapping oldest son, Eliab, he thinks he’s found God’s anointed. But God tells him otherwise.
Why are these verses inspirational?
We spend our whole lives judging the world by appearances and having others judge us the same way. And if we’re honest, we tend to judge ourselves by appearance, too. It’s inspiring to remember that God doesn’t see things the way that we do. He sees beyond the obvious and encourages us to do the same.
2 Samuel 7:22
“How great you are, Sovereign Lord! There is no one like you, and there is no God but you, as we have heard with our own ears.”
Through the prophet Nathan, God reminds David that he’s taken him from the pasture and appointed him as ruler over Israel. He also informs him that David’s name will be great and the throne of his kingdom will endure forever. This verse comes from David’s prayerful response.

In a world full of idols, David reminds us that there is no God like the God of Israel. In light of the sacrifice and resurrection of Jesus, we know that to be true in a way that even David couldn’t fathom. This world offers us plenty to worship, but nothing compares to the one true God.
1 Kings 8:22–24
Then Solomon stood before the altar of the Lord in front of the whole assembly of Israel, spread out his hands toward heaven and said: “Lord, the God of Israel, there is no God like you in heaven above or on earth below—you who keep your covenant of love with your servants who continue wholeheartedly in your way. You have kept your promise to your servant David my father; with your mouth you have promised and with your hand you have fulfilled it—as it is today.
Solomon brings the Ark of the Covenant into the completed temple. This is a momentous occasion because the Ark represents God’s presence which will dwell in this holy place. Solomon then begins giving this dedication.
Why are these verses inspirational?
Throughout the Old Testament, the Israelites are constantly reminded of what God has done for them and the promises he has kept. This builds up their faith and encourages future faithfulness. These verses (and verses like them) are a reminder to us that our relationship with God began centuries ago with the Israelites. His faithfulness to them is part of the story of his devotion to us.
2 Kings 22:19
Because your heart was responsive and you humbled yourself before the Lord when you heard what I have spoken against this place and its people—that they would become a curse and be laid waste—and because you tore your robes and wept in my presence, I also have heard you, declares the Lord.
Josiah becomes king at eight years old, but unlike his dad and grandfather, he’s a good ruler. During the eighteenth year of his reign, he instructs repairs be made to the temple. When a book of the Law is found and read to Josiah, it becomes obvious just how far Israel has strayed from God. In anguish, Josiah tears his clothes.
In a discussion with a prophetess named Huldah, Josiah is told that God intends to visit his wrath upon Israel for its sins, but then he promises mercy to Josiah because he has humbled himself before the Lord
Why is this verse inspirational?
The mercy Josiah experiences is in response to his distress at how far Israel has fallen from God. Josiah doesn’t call down curses on Israel, but as a part of God’s people, he hurts for how far from God the nation has fallen. God pays attention to us as we express heartache for how far we have drifted from him.

From the time that he made him overseer in his house and over all that he had the Lord blessed the Egyptian’s house for Joseph’s sake; the blessing of the Lord was on all that he had, in house and field.

Let all who are under a yoke as slaves regard their own masters as worthy of all honor, so that the name of God and the teaching may not be reviled. Those who have believing masters must not be disrespectful on the ground that they are brothers; rather they must serve all the better since those who benefit by their good service are believers and beloved. Teach and urge these things. If anyone teaches a different doctrine and does not agree with the sound words of our Lord Jesus Christ and the teaching that accords with godliness, he is puffed up with conceit and understands nothing. He has an unhealthy craving for controversy and for quarrels about words, which produce envy, dissension, slander, evil suspicions, and constant friction among people who are depraved in mind and deprived of the truth, imagining that godliness is a means of gain. …

Say to the righteous that it will go well with them,
For they will eat the fruit of their actions.
The Lord was with Joseph, so he became a successful man. And he was in the house of his master, the Egyptian.
The Lord will protect him and keep him alive,
And he shall be called blessed upon the earth;
And do not give him over to the desire of his enemies.
The reward of humility and the fear of the Lord
Are riches, honor and life.
In the day of prosperity be happy,
But in the day of adversity consider—
God has made the one as well as the other
So that man will not discover anything that will be after him.
For You meet him with the blessings of good things;
You set a crown of fine gold on his head.
