Most pastors will not use the bible as a way to uplift people's spirits....at least that is what I've seen in most churches....

New International Version:
I will repay you for the years the locusts have eaten.

I didn't know this thread required specifying versions. or using only one specific version. I'd be glad to if such rules were indicated somewhere.
Such niggling, which is off-thread, and which appears in no other post in this thread, reminds me of why I never read nor post in this forum, and now will continue to stay away.

This one I find myself reciting most often to myself:
Micah 7:8 - Rejoice not against me, O mine enemy: when I fall, I shall arise; when I sit in darkness, the LORD shall be a light unto me.

Not me, why wouldn't a paster use the Word of God to uplift people, I would stay away from a church like that.

A favorite scripture for comfort

7The LORD said, "(G)I will blot out man whom I have created from the face of the land, from man to animals to creeping things and to birds of the sky; for (H)I am sorry that I have made them."


What? God did not say He was sorry he made humor.
