1 Samuel 2:7
The LORD makes poor, and makes rich: he brings low, and lifts up.
Because he has set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he has known my name.
Yet sets he the poor on high from affliction, and makes their families like a flock.
And all the trees of the field shall know that I the LORD have brought down the high tree, have exalted the low tree, have dried up the green tree, and have made the dry tree to flourish: I the LORD have spoken and have done it.
He has put down the mighty from their seats, and exalted them of low degree.
Blessed are you that hunger now: for you shall be filled. Blessed are you that weep now: for you shall laugh.
Let the brother of low degree rejoice in that he is exalted:
But he gives more grace. Therefore he says, God resists the proud, but gives grace unto the humble.
1 Peter 5:10
But the God of all grace, who has called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that you have suffered a while, restore, establish, strengthen, settle you.
The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms: and he shall thrust out the enemy from before you; and shall say, Destroy them.
1 Peter 1:3
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to his abundant mercy has begotten us again unto a living hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
That I will give you the rain of your land in its due season, the first rain and the latter rain, that you may gather in your grain, and your wine, and your oil.
