uplifting thoughts and inspiration on faith
The angel of the Lord encamps all around those who fear Him,
And delivers them.
11 For He shall give His angels charge over you,
To keep you in all your ways.

“Take heed that you do not despise one of these little ones,
for I say to you that in heaven their angels always see

“Your throne, O God, is forever and ever;
A scepter of righteousness is the scepter of Your kingdom.
9 You have loved righteousness and hated lawlessness;
Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You
With the oil of gladness more than Your companions.”
“You, Lord, in the beginning laid the foundation of the earth,
And the heavens are the work of Your hands.
11 They will perish, but You remain;
And they will all grow old like a garment;
12 Like a cloak You will fold them up,
And they will be changed.

And Your years will not fail.”

“Sit at My right hand,
Till I make Your enemies Your footstool”?
14 Are the angels not all ministering spirits sent forth to minister for those who will inherit salvation?
Do not forget to entertain strangers,
for by so doing some have unwittingly
