The Lord will be your confidence,
and will keep your foot from being caught.
Surely the wrath of man shall praise You; with the remainder of wrath You shall gird Yourself. § The king’s heart is in the hand of the Lord, like the rivers of water; He turns it wherever He wishes. § When a man’s ways please the Lord, He makes even his enemies to be at peace with him.
I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in His word I do hope. My soul waits for the Lord more than those who watch for the morning—yes, more than those who watch for the morning. § I sought the Lord, and He heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.
The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms; He will thrust out the enemy from before you, and will say, “Destroy!” § Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, and whose hope is the Lord.
What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?

Consolation in Christ … comfort of
love … fellowship of the Spirit.
Man who is born of woman is of few days and full of trouble. He comes forth like a flower and fades away; he flees like a shadow and does not continue. § My flesh and my heart fail; but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
The Father … will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever … The Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name. § Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.
If we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who sleep in Jesus … And thus we shall always be with the Lord. Therefore comfort one another with these words.
