The Lord is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble; and He knows those who trust in Him.
I praise You, the Lord of hosts, for You, Lord, are good, for Your mercy endures forever. You, Lord God, are my refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. I say of You, Lord, “You are my refuge and my fortress; my God, in You I will trust.” Who is like me, one saved by You, Lord, the shield of my help and the sword of my majesty! As for You, God, Your way is perfect; Your word is proven; You are a shield to all who trust in You. For who is God, except You, Lord? And who is a rock, except You, my God?
If I love You, I am known by You. Your solid foundation stands sealed with: “You know those who are Yours” and “Let everyone who names the name of Christ depart from iniquity.” You, Lord, know the way of the righteous, but the way of the ungodly shall perish. I have found grace in Your sight, and You know me by name.
What a privilege to be known by You, Lord God! What a foundation for peace and hope!
