Whoever trusts in the Lord, happy is he. 

Abraham] did not waver at the promise of God through unbelief, but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God, and being fully convinced that what He had promised He was also able to perform. § The children of Judah prevailed, because they relied on the Lord God of their fathers.

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, even though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea. § It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man. It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in princes. § 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.

Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the man who trusts in Him! Oh, fear the Lord, you His saints! There is no want to those who fear Him.

Prov. 16:20; Rom. 4:20–21; 2 Chron. 13:18;
Ps. 46:1–2; 118:8–9; 37:23–24; 34:8–9


I will both lie down in peace, and sleep;
for You alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety.

You shall not be afraid of the terror by night. § He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge. § As a hen gathers her chicks under her wings. § He will not allow your foot to be moved; He who keeps you will not slumber. Behold, He who keeps Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord is your keeper; the Lord is your shade at your right hand.

I will abide in Your tabernacle forever; I will trust in the shelter of Your wings. § The darkness shall not hide from You, but the night shines as the day; the darkness and the light are both alike to You.

He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? § You are Christ’s, and Christ is God’s. § I will trust and not be afraid.

Ps. 4:8; 91:5; 91:4; Matt. 23:37; Ps. 121:3–5; 61:4;
139:12; Rom. 8:32; 1 Cor. 3:23; Isa. 12:2
