And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom you will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
II Chronicles 7:14
We live within the shadow of the Almighty, sheltered by the God who is above all gods.
This I declare, that he alone is my refuge, my place of safety; he is my God, and I am trusting him.
For he rescues you from every trap, and protects you from the fatal plague.
He will shield you with his wings! They will shelter you. His faithful promises are your armor.
Now you don’t need to be afraid of the dark any more, nor fear the dangers of the day;
nor dread the plagues of darkness, nor disasters in the morning.
Though a thousand fall at my side, though ten thousand are dying around me, the evil will not touch me.
I will see how the wicked are punished but I will not share it.
For Jehovah is my refuge! I choose the God above all gods to shelter me.
How then can evil overtake me or any plague come near?
For he orders his angels to protect you wherever you go.
They will steady you with their hands to keep you from stumbling against the rocks on the trail.
You can safely meet a lion or step on poisonous snakes, yes, even trample them beneath your feet! For the Lord says, “Because he loves me, I will rescue him; I will make him great because he trusts in my name.
When he calls on me I will answer; I will be with him in trouble, and rescue him and honor him.
I will satisfy him with a full life and give him my salvation.”
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.
When Jesus heard these things, he marveled at him, and turned him about, and said unto the people that followed him, I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel.
