Those who know your name trust in you,
for you, Lord, have never forsaken those who seek you.
1 Peter 1:15-16
But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; for it is written: “Be holy, because I am holy.”
You are good, and what you do is good;
teach me your decrees.
Lamentations 3:22-23 (ESV)
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases;
his mercies never come to an end;
they are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.
As the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts.
Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.
Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.
Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God!
How unsearchable his judgments,
and his paths beyond tracing out!
“You are worthy, our Lord and God,
to receive glory and honour and power,
for you created all things,
and by your will they were created
and have their being.”
The Lord is compassionate and gracious,
slow to anger, abounding in love.
“I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.”
