A psalm of David.
1 The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.
2 He makes me lie down in green pastures,
He leads me beside quiet waters,
3 He restores my soul.
He guides me in paths of righteousness
for His name’s sake.
4 Even though I walk
through the valley of the shadow of death, [a]
I will fear no evil,
for You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff,
they comfort me.
5 You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
6 Surely goodness and love will follow me
all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the LORD
However, as it is written:
“No eye has seen,
no ear has heard,
no mind has conceived
what God has prepared for those who love Him.”
1 Corinthians 2:9
“For if, when we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to Him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through His life!”
“Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.”
“The Lord of hosts has sworn, saying, Surely, as I have thought and planned, so shall it come to pass, and as I have purposed, so shall it stand…This is the [Lord’s] purpose that is purposed upon the whole earth; and this is [His omnipotent] hand that is stretched out over all the nations. For the Lord of hosts has purposed, and who can annul it? And His hand is stretched out, and who can turn it back?”
Isaiah 14:24, 26-27
“Love the LORD, all His saints!
The LORD preserves the faithful.”
“Sons are a heritage from the LORD,
children a reward from Him.”
