My Dear Child . . .

(Exodus 34:6-7)

'I am the LORD, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you. So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Don't be afraid, for I have ransomed you; I have called you by name; you are mine. When you go through deep waters and great trouble, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown! When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up - the flames will not consume you. For I am the Lord your God, your Savior.'

The mountains shall depart and the hills be removed, but My kindness shall not depart from you, nor shall My covenant of peace be removed. For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.'

(Hosea 2:18-20 LB)
Take courage, therefore, for 'my people will live in peaceful dwelling places, in secure homes, in undisturbed places of rest. Though hail flattens the forest and the city is leveled completely, how blessed you will be, sowing your seed by every stream. The wolf and the lamb will feed together, and the lion will eat straw like the ox. They will neither harm nor destroy on all my holy mountain. I will make peace your governor and righteousness your ruler. No longer will violence be heard in your land, nor ruin or destruction within your borders, but you will call your walls Salvation and your gates Praise. The sun will no more be your light by day, nor will the brightness of the moon shine on you, for I will be your everlasting light, and I will be your glory. Your sun will never set again, and your moon will wane no more; and your days of sorrow will end. At that time I will make a treaty between you and the wild animals, birds, and snakes, not to fear each other any more; and I will destroy all weapons, and all wars will end. Then you will lie down in peace and safety, unafraid; and I will bind you to me forever with chains of righteousness and justice and love and mercy. I will betroth you to me in faithfulness and love, and you will really know me then as you never have before.'
(2 Corinthians 6:18)

(Luke 11:9)
(John 16:24)
'If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer. Before you call I will answer; while you are still speaking I will hear. So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete.'
(Jeremiah 31:35)
'This is what the LORD says, he who appoints the sun to shine by day, who decrees the moon and stars to shine by night, who stirs up the sea so that its waves roar - the LORD Almighty is his name.'
