Grateful for the Promises

Today, with heart overflowing with gratitude, I remember some of the promises of Him who is faithful:

"Do not worry. Do not keep saying, 'What will we eat?' or, 'What will we drink?' or, 'What will we wear?' The people who do not know God are looking for all these things. Your Father in heaven knows you need all these things."
Matthew 6:31-32

"The Lord also keeps safe those who suffer. He is a safe place in times of trouble."
Psalm 9:9

"And if you give what you have to the hungry, and fill the needs of those who suffer, then your light will rise in darkness, and your darkness will be like the brightest time of day."
Isaiah 58:10

"I will show you and teach you in the way you should go. I will tell you what to do with My eye upon you."
Psalm 32:8

"But we have power over all these things through Jesus Who loves us so much. For I know that nothing can keep us from the love of God. Death cannot! Life cannot! Angels cannot! Leaders cannot! Any other power cannot! Hard things now or in the future cannot! The world above or the world below cannot! Any other living thing cannot keep us away from the love of God which is ours through Christ Jesus our Lord."
Romans 8:37-39

"If we have no faith, He will still be faithful for He cannot go against what He is."
2 Timothy 2:13

"You are now children of God because you have put your trust in Christ Jesus."
Galatians 3:26

"Peace I leave with you. My peace I give to you. I do not give peace to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid."
John 14:27

"The Holy Writings say, 'No eye has ever seen or no ear has ever heard or no mind has ever thought of the wonderful things God has made ready for those who love Him.'"
I Corinthians 2:9
