I am with you to save you.
Shall the prey be taken from the mighty, or the captives of the righteous be delivered? But thus says the Lord: “Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away, and the prey of the terrible be delivered; for I will con- tend with him who contends with you … All flesh shall know that I, the Lord, am your Savior, and your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob. § Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.
We do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. § In that He Himself has suffered, being tempted, He is able to aid those who are tempted. § The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord, and He delights in his way. Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down; for the Lord upholds him with His hand.
Jer. 15:20; Isa. 49:24–26; 41:10; Heb. 4:15; 2:18; Ps. 37:23–24
He satisfies the longing soul, and
fills the hungry soul with goodness.
You have tasted that the Lord is gracious.
O God, You are my God; early will I seek You; my soul thirsts for You; my flesh longs for You in a dry and thirsty land where there is no water. So I have looked for You in the sanctuary, to see Your power and Your glory. § My soul longs, yes, even faints for the courts of the Lord; my heart and my flesh cry out for the living God. § Having a desire to depart and be with Christ, which is far better.
I shall be satisfied when I awake in Your likeness. § They shall neither hunger anymore nor thirst anymore; the sun shall not strike them, nor any heat; for the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne will shepherd them and lead them to living fountains of waters. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes. § They are abundantly satisfied with the fullness of Your house, and You give them drink from the river of Your pleasures. § My people shall be satisfied with My goodness, says the Lord.”
