The righteous person may have many troubles, but the Lord delivers him from them all.
Life is sometimes hard and at times may even seem unfair. You will go through tough times but don’t give up hope. Keep your mind on the things above. Keep praying. Keep your focus on God and he will get you through the troubles that do come your way.
Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it.
Evil is all around us all we have to do is turn on the evening news to see proof of the evil in this world. To live a peaceful life, the Bible tells us to turn from evil. This includes evil people, evil things, and all things evil. Instead, do good, according to God’s Word. Embrace peace in every area of your life through your faith in God.
I will declare that your love stands firm forever, that you have established your faithfulness in heaven itself.
We can be assured that God honors and fulfills his promises. We can rely on God’s faithfulness which has been founded in heaven. Our hope and confidence in him lies in his faithfulness because his Word is true and trustworthy forever and ever.
The Lord is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works.
God is the essence of perfect goodness. He is kind, caring, compassionate, generous, and merciful toward all who seek him. Everything from God is good and all good things are from God. God’s goodness and love last forever.
Ah, Sovereign Lord, you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for you.
God is all powerful and nothing is too hard for him. When we feel overwhelmed by our circumstances we need only remember that we serve a mighty God who created the heavens and the earth. He loves us, cares for us, and nothing is impossible for him. Nothing is beyond his power and there is nothing that his power cannot affect.
But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; for it is written: “Be holy, because I am holy.”
God is holy and he is calling you to be holy. Before you knew God you didn’t know any better, but now that you know God he expects more from you. He expects you to be holy. God wants you to be obedient and live according to his will, in every aspect of your life.
I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.
God cannot be measured; he cannot be defined by human standards. He has no beginning and no end. He always was, he is, and always will be. He has no limits but because our minds are finite we try to box him into a set form. We need to remove the parameters we put on God and have faith in his limitless power, with God all things are possible.
