Commit your works to the Lord
And your plans will be established.
Do not let your heart envy sinners,
But live in the fear of the Lord always.
1 Samuel 4:11
And the ark of God was taken; and the two sons of Eli, Hophni and Phinehas, died.
1 Samuel 30:8
David inquired of the Lord, saying, “Shall I pursue this band? Shall I overtake them?” And He said to him, “Pursue, for you will surely overtake them, and you will surely rescue all.”
1 Chronicles 28:9
“As for you, my son Solomon, know the God of your father, and serve Him with a whole heart and a willing mind; for the Lord searches all hearts, and understands every intent of the thoughts. If you seek Him, He will let you find Him; but if you forsake Him, He will reject you forever.
Blessed be the Lord, the God of our fathers, who has put such a thing as this in the king’s heart, to adorn the house of the Lord which is in Jerusalem,
For I was ashamed to request from the king troops and horsemen to protect us from the enemy on the way, because we had said to the king, “The hand of our God is favorably disposed to all those who seek Him, but His power and His anger are against all those who forsake Him.”
O Lord, I beseech You, may Your ear be attentive to the prayer of Your servant and the prayer of Your servants who delight to revere Your name, and make Your servant successful today and grant him compassion before this man.”Now I was the cupbearer to the king.
Then the king said to me, “What would you request?” So I prayed to the God of heaven.
1 Corinthians 10:31
Whether, then, you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.
2 Corinthians 8:16
But thanks be to God who puts the same earnestness on your behalf in the heart of Titus.
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.
Whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through Him to God the Father.
The mind of man plans his way,
But the Lord directs his steps.
Good and upright is the Lord;
Therefore He instructs sinners in the way.
I will instruct you and teach you in the way which you should go;
I will counsel you with My eye upon you.
Your ears will hear a word behind you, “This is the way, walk in it,” whenever you turn to the right or to the left.
Thus says the Lord, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel,
“I am the Lord your God, who teaches you to profit,
Who leads you in the way you should go.
I know, O Lord, that a man’s way is not in himself,
Nor is it in a man who walks to direct his steps.
But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him.
