The God of all grace. — 1 Pet 5:10 NET
“I will proclaim the Lord by name before you; I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious.”—“God is gracious to him and says, ’Spare him from going down to the place of corruption, I have found a ransom for him.’”—They are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus. God publicly displayed him at his death as the mercy seat accessible through faith. This was to demonstrate his righteousness, because God in his forbearance had passed over the sins previously committed.—Grace and truth came about through Jesus Christ.
For by grace you are saved through faith, and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God.—Grace, mercy, and peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord!—To each one of us grace was given according to the measure of the gift of Christ.—Just as each one has received a gift, use it to serve one another as good stewards of the varied grace of God.—He gives greater grace.
Grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be the honor both now and on that eternal day.

I look up toward the hills. From where does my help come? My help comes from the Lord. — Ps 121:1-2 NET
As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the Lord surrounds his people, now and forevermore.
I look up toward you, the one enthroned in heaven. Look, as the eyes of servants look to the hand of their master, as the eyes of a female servant look to the hand of her mistress, so my eyes will look to the Lord, our God, until he shows us favor.—For you are my deliverer; under your wings I rejoice.
“Our God, will you not judge them? For we are powerless against this huge army that attacks us! We don’t know what we should do; we look to you for help.”—I continually look to the Lord for help, for he will free my feet from the enemy’s net.—Our deliverer is the Lord, the Creator of heaven and earth.
Ps 125:2, Ps 123:1-2, Ps 63:7, 2 Chr 20:12, Ps 25:15, Ps 124:8
