Truly my soul silently waits for God;
From Him comes my salvation.
He only is my rock and my salvation;
He is my defense;
I shall not be greatly moved.
Psalms 62: 1-2
Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the Lord your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.
For I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me. This is the will of the Father who sent Me, that of all He has given Me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up at the last day. And this is the will of Him who sent Me, that everyone who sees the Son and believes in Him may have everlasting life; and I will raise him up at the last day.
John 6: 38-40
Remember the word to Your servant,
Upon which You have caused me to hope.
This is my comfort in my affliction,
For Your Word has given me life.
Psalms 119: 49-50
We can do nothing without prayer. All things can be done by importunate prayer. It surmounts or removes all obstacles, overcome every resisting force, and gains its ends in the face of invincible hindrances.
Confess [your] trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.
“No one lights a lamp and puts it in a place where it will be hidden, or under a bowl. Instead he puts it on its stand, so that those who come in may see the light. Your eye is the lamp of your body. When your eyes are good, your whole body also is full of light. But when they are bad, your body also is full of darkness. See to it, then, that the light within you is not darkness. Therefore, if your whole body is full of light, and no part of it dark, it will be completely lighted, as when the light of a lamp shines on you.”
Rich and poor have this in common:
The Lord is the Maker of them all.
A prudent man sees danger and takes refuge,
but the simple keep going and suffer for it.
Humility and the fear of the Lord
bring wealth and honor and life.
