I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand
Be not dismayed, for I am your God
. . . fear not, for I am with you,
Behold your God
Prepare the way of the LORD, make straight . . . a highway for our God
Comfort, comfort my people, says their God
Speak tenderly to Jerusalem, and cry to her
that her warfare is ended, that her iniquity is pardoned . . .
God has created us to pursue business, but not only to provide for our needs and make a profit. His primary purpose is to experience the glory He designed for us when He gave us the life and gifts He provided for us.
It’s Thanksgiving. But let’s suppose you can’t be very thankful this year.
