The lord keeps watch over you as you come and go, both now and forever.
Wherever you go and whatever you do, you will be blessed.
1 Samuel 25:29
“Even when you are chased by those who seek to kill you, your life is safe in the care of the lord your God, secure in his treasure pouch! But the lives of your enemies will disappear like stones shot from a sling!
You will capture all your enemies. Your strong right hand will seize all who hate you.
For you are my hiding place; you protect me from trouble. You surround me with songs of victory.
Psalm 33:10, 11
The lord frustrates the plans of the nations and thwarts all their schemes. 11 But the lord’s plans stand firm forever; his intentions can never be shaken.
18 But the lord watches over those who fear him, those who rely on his unfailing love. 19 He rescues them from death and keeps them alive in times of famine. 20 We put our hope in the lord. He is our help and our shield.
I prayed to the lord, and he answered me. He freed me from all my fears.
Psalm 34:7, 8
7 For the angel of the lord is a guard; he surrounds and defends all who fear him. 8 Taste and see that the lord is good. Oh, the joys of those who take refuge in him!
Psalm 34:19, 20
19 The righteous person faces many troubles, but the lord comes to the rescue each time. 20 For the lord protects the bones of the righteous; not one of them is broken!
But the lord will redeem those who serve him. No one who takes refuge in him will be condemned.
Psalm 91 >
He will not let you stumble; the one who watches over you will not slumber. 4Indeed, he who watches over Israel never slumbers or sleeps. 5 The lord himself watches over you! The lord stands beside you as your protective shade. 6 The sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon at night. 7 The lord keeps you from all harm and watches over your life. 8 The lord keeps watch over you as you come and go, both now and forever.
Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.
you will lie down and sleep soundly.
Proverbs 3:23, 24
They keep you safe on your way, and your feet will not stumble. 24 You can go to bed without fear;
The way of the righteous is like the first gleam of dawn, which shines ever brighter until the full light of day.
Then you will show discernment, and your lips will express what you’ve learned.
When you walk, their counsel will lead you. When you sleep, they will protect you. When you wake up, they will advise you.
Commit your actions to the lord, and your plans will succeed.
We can make our plans, but the lord determines our steps.
We may throw the dice, but the lord determines how they fall.
You can make many plans, but the lord’s purpose will prevail.
You will be secure under a government that is just and fair. Your enemies will stay far away. You will live in peace, and terror will not come near.
But in that coming day no weapon turned against you will succeed. You will silence every voice raised up to accuse you. These benefits are enjoyed by the servants of the lord; their vindication will come from me. I, the lord, have spoken!
But you are not controlled by your sinful nature. You are controlled by the Spirit if you have the Spirit of God living in you. (And remember that those who do not have the Spirit of Christ living in them do not belong to him at all.)
1 Corinthians 2:16
For, “Who can know the lord’s thoughts? Who knows enough to teach him?” But we understand these things, for we have the mind of Christ.
Philippians 4:6, 7
Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. 7 Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.
