2 Corinthians 10:5
We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.
Then you will know that I am the Lord; those who hope in me will not be disappointed.
Taste and see that the Lord is good. Oh, the joys of those who take refuge in him!
The Lord is close to the brokenhearted; he rescues those whose spirits are crushed.
I know the plans that I have for you, declares the Lord. They are plans for peace and not disaster, plans to give you a future filled with hope. (GWT)
1 Peter 5:7
Turn all your anxiety over to God because he cares for you. (GWT)
We are slaves, but our God hasn’t abandoned us in our slavery.
O Lord, you are my God.I will highly honor you; I will praise your name.You have done miraculous things.You have been completely reliable in carrying out your plans from long ago. (GWT)
2 Samuel 14:14
We are all going to die; we are all like water that is poured on the ground and can’t be gathered up. But doesn’t God forgive a person? He never plans to keep a banished person in exile. (GWT)
