The verses below have such a calming effect on me. God gives me gifts through the Holy Spirit. My only job is to use them for the profit of all. Maybe your gift is kindness, I am so grateful to you.

1 Corinthians 12:7-9
But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all:
for to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another the word of knowledge through the same Spirit,
to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healings by the same Spirit,

Steadfast love from everlasting to everlasting. Reassuring isn't it? All we need do is fear, keep and remember.

Psalm 103:15-19
As for man, his days are like grass;
he flourishes like a flower of the field;
for the wind passes over it, and it is gone,
and its place knows it no more.
But the steadfast love of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear him,
and his righteousness to children's children,
to those who keep his covenant 
and remember to do his commandments.
The Lord has established his throne in the heavens,
and his kingdom rules over all.

Enough said.

Ecclesiastes 7:13-14
Consider the work of God;
For who can make straight what He has made crooked?
In the day of prosperity be joyful,
But in the day of adversity consider:
Surely God has appointed the one as well as the other,
So that man can find out nothing that will come after him.

The first thing a country will do is assess the weakness of another. When God is honored in a society and has been historically, the disheartened enemy knows it does not have a chance against such strength.

Nehemiah 6:15-16
So the wall was finished on the twenty-fifth day of Elul, in fifty-two days.
And it happened, when all our enemies heard of it, and all the nations around us saw these things, that they were very disheartened in their own eyes; for they perceived that this work was done by our God.

This was once me. God claimed me from this slavery. I am most grateful.

Proverbs 23:29-30
Who has woe?
Who has sorrow?
Who has contentions?
Who has complaints?
Who has wounds without cause?
Who has redness of eyes?
Those who linger long at the wine,
Those who go in search of mixed wine.
