1 PETER 5:7
Casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.
A Psalm of David. The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. …
I can do all things through him who strengthens me.
The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.
Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.
1 PETER 5:6-7
Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you, casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.
He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with his pinions, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness is a shield and buckler. You will not fear the terror of the night, nor the arrow that flies by day, …
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.
I sought the Lord, and he answered me and delivered me from all my fears.
And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.
I have set the Lord always before me; because he is at my right hand, I shall not be shaken.
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.
Thus says the Lord: “Keep your voice from weeping, and your eyes from tears, for there is a reward for your work, declares the Lord, and they shall come back from the land of the enemy.
1 CORINTHIANS 10:13
No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.
What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?
So we can confidently say, “The Lord is my helper; I will not fear; what can man do to me?”
