Psalm 46 (ESV) To the choirmaster. Of the Sons of Korah. According to Alamoth.

Selah 4 There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the…

Those Who Trust in the LORD Shall Not Be Moved

Psalm 125 (ESV) A Song of Ascents. 125 Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion, which cannot be moved, but abides forever. 2 As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the Lord surrounds his people, from this time forth and forevermore. 3 For the scepter of wickedness shall not rest on the land allotted to the righteous, lest the righteous stretch out their hands to do wrong. 4 Do good, O Lord, to those who are good, and…

Taste And See That The Lord Is Good

The Lord Is My Host

Fullness of Joy & Pleasure Forevermore

Psalm 16 (ESV) A Miktam of David. 16 Preserve me, O God, for in you I take refuge. 2 I say to the Lord, “You are my Lord;     I have no good apart from you.” 3 As for the saints in the land, they are the excellent ones,     in whom is all my delight. 4 The sorrows of those who run after another god shall multiply;     their drink offerings of blood I will not pour out     or take their names on my lips. 5 The Lord is my…

Honor Your Father

Ephesians 6:1-4 (ESV) Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. “Honor your father and mother” (this is the first commandment with a promise), “that it may go well with you and that you may live long in the land.” Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.

And when the disciples saw it, they rebuked them. 16 But Jesus called them to him, saying, “Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God. 17 Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.”

On Him We Have Set Our Hope

2 Corinthians 1:8-11 (ESV) 8 For we do not want you to be unaware, brothers, of the affliction we experienced in Asia. For we were so utterly burdened beyond our strength that we despaired of life itself. 9 Indeed, we felt that we had received the sentence of death. But that was to make us rely not on ourselves but on God who raises the dead. 10 He delivered us from such a deadly peril, and he will deliver us.…

Whoever Loves Father or Mother More Than Me Is Not Worthy of Me

Matthew 10: 37-38 (ESV) Whoever loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me, and whoever loves son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. And whoever does not take his cross and follow me is not worthy of me. John 14: 15-17 (ESV) “If you love me, you will keep my commandments. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, to be with you forever, even the Spirit of truth, whom…
