Your Maker is your husband, the Lord of hosts is His name.

This is a great mystery, but I speak concerning Christ and the church.You shall no longer be termed Forsaken … but you shall be called Hephzibah [My Delight Is in Her] … for the Lord delights in you … As the bridegroom rejoices over the bride, so shall your God rejoice over you. § He has sent Me … to comfort all who mourn, to console those who mourn in Zion, to give them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness.  I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for He has clothed me with the garments of salvation … as a bridegroom decks himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?

Isa. 54:5; Eph. 5:32; Isa. 62:4–5; 61:1–3; 61:10; Hos. 2:19; Rom. 8:35


My times are in Your hand.

His saints are in Your hand. § The word of the Lord came to [Elijah], saying, “Get away from here and turn eastward, and hide by the Brook Cherith, which flows into the Jordan. And it will be that you shall drink from the brook, and I have commanded the ravens to feed you there.” … Then the word of the Lord came to him, saying, “Arise, go to Zarephath, which belongs to Sidon, and dwell there. See, I have commanded a widow there to provide for you.”

Do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on … Your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths. § Casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.
