uplifting thoughts and inspiration on faith
Blessed be the Lord my Rock,
Who trains my hands for war, and my fingers for battle—
My loving-kindness and my fortress,
my high tower and my deliverer,
My shield and the One in whom I take refuge,
Who subdues my people under me.
Lord, what is man, that You take knowledge of him?
Or the son of man, that You are mindful of him?
Man is like a breath; His days are like a passing shadow.
Bow down Your heavens, O Lord, and come down;
Touch the mountains, and they shall smoke.
Flash forth lightning and scatter them;
shoot out Your arrows and destroy them.
Stretch out Your hand from above;
rescue me and deliver me out of great waters,
From the hand of foreigners, whose mouth speaks lying words,
And whose right hand is a right hand of falsehood.
I will sing a new song to You, O God;
on a harp of ten strings I will sing praises to You,
The One who gives salvation to kings,
Who delivers David His servant From the deadly sword.
Rescue me and deliver me from the hand of foreigners,
Whose mouth speaks lying words,
And whose right hand is a right hand of falsehood—
That our sons may be as plants grown up in their youth;
That our daughters may be as pillars, sculptured in palace style;
That our barns may be full, supplying all kinds of produce;
That our sheep may bring forth thousands and ten thousands in our fields;
That our oxen may be well laden; that there be no breaking in or going out;
That there be no outcry in our streets.
Happy and blessed are the people who are in such a case;
yes, happy (blessed, fortunate, prosperous, to be envied)
are the people whose God is the Lord!
Psalm 145:8 The Lord is gracious and full of compassion, slow to anger and abounding in mercy and loving-kindness.
Psalm 147:11 The Lord takes pleasure in those who reverently and worshipfully fear Him, in those who hope in His mercy and loving-kindness.
Isaiah 63:7 I will recount the loving-kindnesses of the Lord and the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord, according to all that the Lord has bestowed on us, and the great goodness to the house of Israel, which He has granted them according to His mercy and according to the multitude of His loving-kindnesses.
You have moved my soul far from peace; I have forgotten prosperity.
And I said, “My strength and my hope have perished from the Lord.”
Remember my affliction and roaming, the wormwood and the gall.
My soul still remembers and sinks within me.
This I recall to my mind,
therefore I have hope.
Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed,
because His compassions fail not.
They are new every morning;
Great is Your faithfulness.
“The Lord is my portion,” says my soul,
“Therefore I hope in Him!”
The Lord is good to those who wait for Him,
to the soul who seeks Him.
It is good that one should hope
and wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord.
Micah 7:18 Who is a God like You, Who forgives iniquity and passes over the transgression of the remnant of His heritage? He retains not His anger forever, because He delights in mercy and loving-kindness.
Zechariah 7:9 Thus has the Lord of hosts spoken: Execute true judgment and show mercy and kindness and tender compassion, every man to his brother;
