The Lord is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble; and He knows those who trust in Him.
Praise the Lord of hosts, for the Lord is good, for His mercy endures forever. • God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. • I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress; my God, in Him I will trust.” • Who is like You, a people saved by the Lord, the shield of Your help and the sword of Your majesty! • As for God, His way is perfect; the word of the Lord is proven; He is a shield to all who trust in Him. For who is God, except the Lord? And who is a rock, except our God?
If anyone loves God, this one is known by Him. • The solid foundation of God stands, having this seal: “The Lord knows those who are His,” and, “Let everyone who names the name of Christ depart from iniquity.” • The Lord knows the way of the righteous, but the way of the ungodly shall perish. • You have found grace in My sight, and I know you by name.

I want you to be without care.
He cares for you. • The eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him.
Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the man who trusts in Him!
The young lions lack and suffer hunger; but those who seek the Lord shall not lack any good thing. • Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? • Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
