12 For surely, O LORD, you bless the righteous; you surround them with your favor as with a shield.
9 The LORD is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble.
11 You have made known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand.
5 Why are you downcast, O my soul? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and 6 my God.
3 Commit to the LORD whatever you do, and your plans will succeed.
18 Yet the LORD longs to be gracious to you; he rises to show you compassion. For the LORD is a God of justice. Blessed are all who wait for him!
11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

25 The LORD is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks him;
19 The Sovereign LORD is my strength; he makes my feet like the feet of a deer, he enables me to go on the heights.
20 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
