The Lord shows his faithful followers the way they should live. — Ps 25:12 NET
“The eye is the lamp of the body. If then your eye is healthy, your whole body will be full of light.”
Your word is a lamp to walk by, and a light to illumine my path.—You will hear a word spoken behind you, saying, “This is the correct way, walk in it,” whether you are heading to the right or the left.—I will instruct and teach you about how you should live. I will advise you as I look you in the eye. Do not be like an unintelligent horse or mule, which will not obey you unless they are controlled by a bridle and bit. An evil person suffers much pain, but the Lord’s faithfulness overwhelms the one who trusts in him. Rejoice in the Lord and be happy, you who are godly! Shout for joy, all you who are morally upright!
Lord, we know that people do not control their own destiny. It is not in their power to determine what will happen to them.
Matt 6:22, Ps 119:105, Isa 30:21, Ps 32:8-11, Jer 10:23
When you lie down you will not be filled with fear; when you lie down your sleep will be pleasant. — Prov 3:24 NET
Now a great windstorm developed and the waves were breaking into the boat, so that the boat was nearly swamped. But he was in the stern, sleeping on a cushion.
Do not be anxious about anything. Instead, in every situation, through prayer and petition with thanksgiving, tell your requests to God. And the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
I will lie down and sleep peacefully, for you, Lord, make me safe and secure.—Yes, he can provide for those whom he loves even when they sleep.
They continued to stone Stephen while he prayed, “Lord Jesus, receive my spirit!” Then he fell to his knees and cried out with a loud voice, “Lord, do not hold this sin against them!” When he had said this, he died.—Away from the body … at home with the Lord.
Mark 4:37-38, Phil 4:6-7, Ps 4:8, Ps 127:2, Acts 7:59-60, 2 Cor 5:8
