The Lord made everything he was doing successful. — Gen 39:3 NET
How blessed is every one of the Lord’s loyal followers, each one who keeps his commands! You will eat what you worked so hard to grow. You will be blessed and secure.—Trust in the Lord and do what is right! Settle in the land and maintain your integrity! Then you will take delight in the Lord, and he will answer your prayers.—“Be strong and brave! Don’t be afraid and don’t panic, for I, the Lord your God, am with you in all you do.”—“But above all pursue his kingdom and righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.”
As long as he followed the Lord, God caused him to succeed.—“Be sure you do not forget the Lord your God by not keeping his commandments, ordinances, and statutes that I am giving you today. … Be careful not to say, ’My own ability and skill have gotten me this wealth.’”—“The Lord your God is with you! He has made you secure on every side.”
Ps 128:1-2, Ps 37:3-4, Josh 1:9, Matt 6:33, 2 Chr 26:5, Deut 8:11, Deut 8:17, 1 Chr 22:18
“Why are you thinking such things in your hearts?” — Mark 2:8 NET
Without being weak in faith, he considered his own body as dead (because he was about one hundred years old) and the deadness of Sarah’s womb. He did not waver in unbelief about the promise of God but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God.—“Which is easier, to say to the paralytic, ’Your sins are forgiven,’ or to say, ’Stand up, take your stretcher, and walk’?”—“All things are possible for the one who believes.”
“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.”—And he said to them, “Why are you cowardly? Do you still not have faith?”—“Look at the birds in the sky:… your heavenly Father feeds them. Aren’t you more valuable than they are?”—“Why are you arguing among yourselves about having no bread? Don’t you remember the five loaves for the five thousand?”
And my God will supply your every need according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus.
Rom 4:19-20, Mark 2:9, Mark 9:23, Matt 28:18, Mark 4:40, Matt 6:26, Matt 16:8-9, Phil 4:19
