“I will give them a single-minded purpose to live in a way that always shows respect for me. They will want to do that for their own good and the good of the children who descend from them.” — Jer 32:39 NET
“I will give you a new heart, and I will put a new spirit within you.”—The Lord is both kind and fair; that is why he teaches sinners the right way to live. May he show the humble what is right! May he teach the humble his way! The Lord always proves faithful and reliable to those who follow the demands of his covenant.—“That they will all be one, just as you, Father, are in me and I am in you. I pray that they will be in us, so that the world will believe that you sent me.”
I… urge you to live worthily of the calling with which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness,… making every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as you too were called to the one hope of your calling, one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.
Ezek 36:26, Ps 25:8-10, John 17:21, Eph 4:1-6
Those who wait for the Lord’s help find renewed strength. — Isa 40:31 NET
Whenever I am weak, then I am strong.—My God is my source of strength.—But he said to me, “My grace is enough for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” So then, I will boast most gladly about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may reside in me.—“They became my subjects.”
Throw your burden upon the Lord, and he will sustain you.—His hands will be skillful; because of the hands of the Mighty One of Jacob.
“I will not let you go,” Jacob replied, “unless you bless me.”
“You are coming against me with sword and spear and javelin. But I am coming against you in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel’s armies, whom you have defied!”—O Lord, fight those who fight with me! Attack those who attack me! Grab your small shield and large shield, and rise up to help me!
