I got to Psalm 138 in my reading early this morning:
The LORD will perfect that which concerneth me:
thy mercy, O LORD, endureth for ever:
forsake not the works of thine own hands.
That reminded me, vaguely and hazily, of another verse. I found in it 1 Thessalonians, and along the way I found some other verses:
Being confident of this very thing,
that he which hath begun a good work in you
will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.
And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly;
and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved
blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
(1 Thessalonians 5:23)
Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling,
and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory
with exceeding joy,
To the only wise God our Saviour,
be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.
Now the God of peace,
that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus,
that great shepherd of the sheep,
through the blood of the everlasting covenant,
Make you perfect in every good work to do his will,
working in you that which is wellpleasing in his sight,
through Jesus Christ;
to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
Be encouraged, if you’re a disciple of Jesus!
