Joshua 1:9 (my confirmation verse)
Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked
or stand in the way of sinners
or sit in the seat of mockers.
But his delight is in the law of the LORD,
and on his law he meditates day and night.
The LORD is my light and my salvation--
whom shall I fear?
The LORD is the stronghold of my life--
of whom shall I be afraid?
(the answer is- NOTHING, NO ONE!)
I said, "I will confess my transgressions to the LORD"--
and you forgave the iniquity of my sin....
You are my hiding place.
Come, my children, listen to me;
I will teach you the fear of the LORD.
Whoever of you loves life and desires to see many good days,
keep your tongue from evil and your lips from speaking lies.
Turn from evil and do good;
seek peace and pursue it.
God is our refuge and strength, an ever- present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way
and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
though its waters roar and foam
and the mountains quake with their surging...
The LORD Almighty is with us;
The God of Jacob is our fortress...
"Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth."
Psalm 46:1-4, 6, 10
"Call upon me in the day of trouble;
I will deliver you,
And you will honor me."
Create in me a clean heart, O God,
and renew a right spirit within me.
Cast me not away from Thy presence
And take not Thy Holy Spirit from me.
Restore unto me the joy of Thy salvation
And uphold me with Thy free spirit.
Surely God is my help;
the LORD is the one who sustains me...
For he has delivered me from all my troubles,
and my eyes have looked in triumph on my foes.
Psalm 54:4, 7
When I am afraid,
I will trust in you.
In God, whose word I praise,
in God I trust; I will not be afraid.
What can mortal man do to me?
My soul finds rest in God alone;
my salvation comes from him.
He alone is my rock and my salvation;
he is my fortress, I will never be shaken.
Better is one day in your courts
than a thousand elsewhere;
I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God
than dwell in the tents of the wicked.
For the LORD god is a sun and shield;
the LORD bestows favor and honor;
no good thing does he withhold
from those whose walk is blameless.
For the LORD is good and his love endures forever;
his faithfulness continues through all generations.
For as high as the heavens are above the earth,
so great is his love for those who fear him;
as far as the east is from the west,
so far has he removed our transgressions from us.
As a father has compassion on his children,
so the LORD has compassion on those who fear him.
So do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. -Jesus (Matthew 7:31-34)
Go an make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age. -Jesus (Matthew 28:19-20)
But at the beginning of creation God 'made them male and female.' 'For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.' So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore what God joins together, let man not separate. - Jesus (Mark 10:6-9)
