“The joy of the LORD is your strength.” — Neh 8:10 NET
Shout for joy, O sky! Rejoice, O earth! Let the mountains give a joyful shout! For the Lord consoles his people and shows compassion to the oppressed.—“Look, God is my deliverer! I will trust in him and not fear. For the Lord gives me strength and protects me; he has become my deliverer.”—The Lord strengthens and protects me; I trust in him with all my heart. I am rescued and my heart is full of joy; I will sing to him in gratitude.—I will greatly rejoice in the Lord; I will be overjoyed because of my God. For he clothes me in garments of deliverance; he puts on me a robe symbolizing vindication. I look like a bridegroom when he wears a turban as a priest would; I look like a bride when she puts on her jewelry.
So I boast in Christ Jesus about the things that pertain to God.—We also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received this reconciliation.—I will be happy because of the God who delivers me!
Isa 49:13, Isa 12:2, Ps 28:7, Isa 61:10, Rom 15:17, Rom 5:11, Hab 3:18
He has made a perpetual covenant with me, arranged in all its particulars and secured. — 2 Sam 23:5 NET
I know the one in whom my faith is set and I am convinced that he is able to protect what has been entrusted to me until that day.
Blessed is the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms in Christ. For he chose us in Christ before the foundation of the world that we may be holy and unblemished in his sight in love. He did this by predestining us to adoption as his sons through Jesus Christ, according to the pleasure of his will.
We know that all things work together for good for those who love God, who are called according to his purpose, because those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son,… And those he predestined, he also called; and those he called, he also justified; and those he justified, he also glorified.
2 Tim 1:12, Eph 1:3-5, Rom 8:28-30
