But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His wonderful light.
But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on His own; He will speak only what He hears, and He will tell you what is yet to come.
For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
So we say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid.
His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and goodness.
The Lord works righteousness and justice for all the oppressed.
The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it.
The Lord is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in Him.
