But when the kindness of God our Saviour
and His love for mankind appeared,
He saved us, not on the basis of deeds
which we have done in righteousness,
but according to His mercy,
by the washing of regeneration
and renewing by the Holy Spirit,
whom He poured out upon us richly
through Jesus Christ our Saviour,
so that being justified by His grace
we would be made heirs according
to the hope of eternal life.
God Is For Us
For those whom He foreknew,
He also predestined to become conformed
to the image of His Son,
so that He would be the firstborn
among many brethren;
and these whom He predestined, He also called;
and these whom He called, He also justified;
and these whom He justified, He also glorified.
What then shall we say to these things?
If God is for us, who is against us?
A Mighty Fortress Is Our God
God is our refuge and strength,
A very present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear,
though the earth should change
And though the mountains
slip into the heart of the sea;
Though its waters roar and foam,
Though the mountains quake
at its swelling pride.
2 Chronicles 20:14-15
Then in the midst of the assembly
the Spirit of the Lord came upon
Jahaziel the son of Zechariah,
the son of Benaiah, the son of Jeiel,
the son of Mattaniah,
the Levite of the sons of Asaph;
and he said,
“Listen, all Judah and the inhabitants of
Jerusalem and King Jehoshaphat:
thus says the LORD to you,
‘Do not fear or be dismayed
because of this great multitude,
for the battle is not yours but God’s.'"
Call Upon The Lord
2 Samuel 22:2-7
“The LORD is my rock and my fortress
and my deliverer;
My God, my rock, in whom I take refuge,
My shield and the horn of my salvation,
my stronghold and my refuge;
My saviour, You save me from violence.
I call upon the LORD,
who is worthy to be praised,
And I am saved from my enemies.
For the waves of death encompassed me;
The torrents of destruction overwhelmed me;
The cords of Sheol surrounded me;
The snares of death confronted me.
In my distress I called upon the LORD,
Yes, I cried to my God;
And from His temple He heard my voice,
And my cry for help came into His ears."
