|Vindicate me, O Lord, for I have walked in my integrity, and I have trusted in the Lord without wavering.
|Does your trust in the Lord ever waver? In times of trouble, always trust the Almighty God, our vindicator.
|For your steadfast love is before my eyes, and I walk in faithfulness to you.
|How faithful are we to God?
|O Lord, I love the house in which you dwell, and the place where your glory abides.
|What is your heart's desire?
|But as for me, I walk in my integrity; redeem me, and be gracious to me.
|It's a struggle to live a life of integrity knowing that we may still sin. But, by the strength and hope found in the Lord, we're able to stand against temptations.
|My foot stands on level ground; in the great congregation I will bless the Lord.
|Bless the Lord for everything He has done for us.
|O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!
|Praise God from whom all blessings flow!
|You have set your glory above the heavens.
|Remember the story of Jesus calming the storm? Even the winds and waves obey Him.
|I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars that you have established.
|Oh how majestic are your works, God!
|What are human beings that you are mindful of them, mortals that you care for them?
|Truly, we are not worthy in the sight of God. But, by His great mercy, He loves us wholly no matter who we are or what our background is.
|You have given them dominion over the works of your hands; you have put all things under their feet.
|This is how great our God is!
|But we do see Jesus, who for a little while was made lower than the angels, now crowned with glory and honor because of the suffering of death, so that by the grace of God he might taste death for everyone.
|God is Lord of all and one day He will rule the earth as he does now in heaven. This truth can give stability to your decisions everyday.
|It was fitting that God, for whom and through whom all things exist, in bringing many children to glory, should make the pioneer of their salvation perfect through sufferings.
|God's grace to us led to Christ's death. How are we all living our lives knowing this truth?
|For the one who sanctifies and those who are sanctified all have one Father. For this reason Jesus is not ashamed to call them brothers and sisters.
|We who have been set apart for God's service, cleansed and made holy by Jesus, now have the same Father He has, so He has called us His brothers and sisters.
|I will proclaim your name to my brothers and sisters, in the midst of the congregation I will praise you.
|Are you proclaming God's love daily?
|For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh. So, they are no longer two, but one flesh.
|Never enter marriage with the intention of getting out. Ask for God's help for determination to stay together even in times of distress.
|What God has joined together, let no one separate.
|Marriage brings oneness and that is God's plan.
|Truly I tell you, anyone who does not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.
|This is what it means to come to Jesus - like a child, recognizing the need and humbling himself before the Lord.
|Fear not, O land; be glad and rejoice, for the Lord has done great things!

|I am the Lord your God and there is no other.
|The Lord has done great things for us, and we rejoiced.
|Rejoice! For God has done great things for us.
|May those who sow in tears reap with shouts of joy.
|When burdened by sorrorw, know that your times of grief will end and you'll find joy again.
|1 Timothy 2:5-6
|For there is one God; there is also one mediator between God and humankind, Christ Jesus, himself human, who gave himself a ransom for all
|"When you experience worry, where does your reliance lie? "
|Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, or about your body, what you will wear. Look at the birds of the air; they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?
|When you experience worry, where does your reliance lie?
|But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith?
|Here, Jesus tells us not worry about those needs that God promises to supply.
|But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.
|Always give God first place in every area of your life.
|Seek good and not evil, that you may live; and so the Lord, the God of hosts, will be with you, just as you have said.
|Always seek to do good and God will surely bless your heart.
|So teach us to count our days that we may gain a heart of wisdom.
|Take time to number your days by asking, "what do I want to see in my life happen before I die?
|Indeed, the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing until it divides soul from spirit, joints from marrow; it is able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.
|How much of the Bible do you read and allow to influence your life?
|Let us therefore approach the throne of grace with boldness, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
|Come to God with reverence because He is your King. Come to God with bold assurance because He is your Friend and Counselor.
|It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.
|Wealth can be a hinderance to following God.
|All things are possible with God.
|Do you believe this?
|But many who are first will be last, and the last will be first.
|Those who have humbly served others are more qualified to be great in heaven.
|Bless the Lord, O my soul. O Lord my God, you are very great. You are clothed with honor and majesty.
|Only God deserves our highest praise!
|O Lord, how manifold are your works! In wisdom you have made them all; the earth is full of your creatures.
|As you observe your surroundings, thank God for His creativity.
