My Comment:

Each of the verses above can be further explored for great encouragement by consulting the cross references given in The New Treasury of Scripture KnowledgeThe Ultimate Cross Reference Treasury, and even the original Treasury of Scripture Knowledge (TSK). The TSK is included free in the free e-Sword Bible software available from www.e-Sword.net for use on many different devices. There is no excuse for anyone not having at least one of these resources for personal Bible reading and study!

Philippians 4:7 should be read in connection with the preceding verse, Philippians 4:6,

Php 4:6 do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.
Php 4:7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (ESV, English Standard Version)

I have placed a helpful note about two simple methods of Bible study anyone can use to help see the practical application of many verses of Scripture at Psalm 9:10.

Psa 9:10 And those who know your name put their trust in you, for you, O LORD, have not forsaken those who seek you. (ESV)

Psa 9:10  And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee: for thou, LORD, hast not forsaken them that seek thee. (KJV)

Psalm 9:10 is one of the clearest verses of the Bible which states a cause/effect relationship. I have shared the explanation about this feature of Psalm 9:10 several times before on this site (Place “Psalm 9:10” in the search box to find those posts or read Daily Bible Nugget #17 and #723), but I have never shared any of the other verses in the Bible which display this feature. You can find two more of these cause/effect relationship verses (not included in either the NTSK, the UCRT, or Nelson’s Cross Reference Guide to the Bible) by reading my post of August 23, 2021, Daily Bible Nugget #647 for Proverbs 29:2 and also my post of October 11, 2022, Daily Bible Nugget #707 for Psalm 37:4.

Cause/effect relationship verses should form the basis of the real Bible study for practical application of Scripture. Cause/effect relationship verses are hard to spot, and cannot be found using a concordance. As far as I know, I have furnished the most complete listing of cause/effect relationships available in any Bible study resource.

Here are a few more from the extensive list in the Ultimate Cross Reference Treasury full note at Psalm 9:10,

*Psa 26:1 (walked in integrity, trusted in the Lord, are the cause of I shall not slide, the resultant security).

Psa 55:19 (failure to change brings affliction).

Psa 106:44 (God regarded their affliction when he heard their cry).

*Psa 119:15 (meditate on God’s precepts in order to discern His paths),

Psa 119:36 (desire for God’s Word is the cure for covetousness),

*Deut 28:15 (failure to listen to and obey God’s word brings a curse).

**+Job 23:12 (faithfully feasting on God’s Word prevents apostasy).

Job 34:30 (godless leadership ensnares the general populace).

Job 36:14 mg (homosexual life style leads to early death).

Isa 26:9-10 (show favor to the wicked/he will not learn righteousness).

+**Isa 29:24 note (erred in spirit/come to understanding; murmured/learn doctrine).

**Hos 5:4 (evil deeds squelch repentance; sexual cravings hinder knowing God).

*1Co 12:25 (lack of care may lead to schism).

Pastors and Christian leaders need to note carefully the cause/effect relationship stated at 1 Corinthians 12:25. A local pastor once told me he did not approve of small group home Bible studies because they would be a constant source of division and controversy in the church. The truth is the exact opposite of that pastor’s opinion (Job 23:12 and its stated cause/effect relationship!).

The solution to potential schism or division is the exercise of proper care as exemplified by the Apostle Paul in 2 Corinthians 11:28. See the alternative reading at Romans 12:11, where “in business” may be rendered “earnest care (for others)” and the cross references given there:

Rom 12:11  Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord;

in business. or, earnest care (for others). Gr. spoudē (S# G4710, Mar 6:25). FS63I1A, +Exo 12:4, +Rom 12:8 (diligence). =Num 8:11 note. =2Ch 13:10; =2Ch 35:14, =Neh 11:22, +*Psa 112:5, Ecc 3:22, *1Co 12:25, Eph 4:11, +*1Ti 3:5, Heb 13:17.

We demonstrate care for others when we actually take the effort and time to listen to them. This can be done one-on-one. Listening can also take place in a small group setting, as at a home Bible study, when the size of the group is kept to 10 or fewer people. See the note for Exodus 18:21 in The New Treasury of Scripture Knowledge or The Ultimate Cross Reference Treasury:

rulers of tens. As noted, by this system each magistrate, ruler, or leader would have the care of only ten men. Studies of small-group dynamics suggest that 10 or 12 is the maximum size for a group where effective listening to one another (+Rom 12:5, 1Co 14:26, Eph 5:19, 20, 21, Jas 5:16) can occur, essential for effective nurturing (Eph 6:4), comfort (2Co 1:4), caring (+*1Ti 3:5), exhortation (+*Heb 3:13), and fellowship (Mal 3:16) for spiritual growth and the discipling of new leadership (1Ti 4:16, 2Ti 2:2). It was prescribed in Jewish practice that ten men as heads of families were required to establish a local synagogue, or to conduct a service. Where a building for the purpose was not available, Edersheim notes “they might meet for worship in a private dwelling, a sort of ’Synagogue in the house’ (Phm 1:2)” (The Life and Times of Jesus the Messiah, vol. 1, p. 433). *Gen 18:32, Rth 4:2, 1Sa 25:5, Mat 10:1, Act 19:7.
