God has a plan and I am so thankful for all who have been so kind and helpful during these days!! We are as I say many times in my videos…”La Familia”. And all of your kind words and encouragements again let me know how true that is for our little YouTube channel family.

Know therefore that the Lord your God, He is God, the faithful God, who keeps His covenant and His lovingkindness to a thousandth generation with those who love Him and keep His commandments;

Deuteronomy 7:9 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.

Deuteronomy 6:5 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has seen God at any time; if we love one another, God abides in us, and His love is perfected in us.

1 John 4:10-12 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

He loves righteousness and justice; The earth is full of the lovingkindness of the Lord.

For the Lord is righteous, He loves righteousness; The upright will behold His face.

For the Lord loves justice And does not forsake His godly ones; They are preserved forever,

Psalm 37:28 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

 

For whom the Lord loves He reproves, Even as a father corrects the son in whom he delights.

Proverbs 3:12 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

 

The way of the wicked is an abomination to the Lord, But He loves one who pursues righteousness.

Proverbs 15:9 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

 

A friend loves at all times,

Proverbs 17:17 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

43¬†‚ÄúYou have heard that it was said, ‚ÄėYou shall love your neighbor¬†and hate your enemy.‚Äô¬†44¬†But I say to you,¬†love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,¬†45¬†so that you may¬†[a]be¬†sons of your Father who is in heaven; for He causes His sun to rise on¬†the¬†evil and¬†the¬†good, and sends rain on¬†the¬†righteous and¬†the¬†unrighteous.¬†46¬†For¬†if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same?¬†47¬†If you greet only your brothers, what more are you doing¬†than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same?¬†48¬†Therefore¬†[b]you are to be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.

 

Matthew 5:43-48 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

“In Your lovingkindness You have led the people whom You have redeemed; In Your strength You have guided them to Your holy habitation.

Exodus 15:13 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

[ Promises of God ] “Then it shall come about, because you listen to these judgments and keep and do them, that the Lord your God will keep with you His covenant and His lovingkindness which He swore to your forefathers.

Deuteronomy 7:12 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

by¬†loving¬†the¬†Lord¬†your God, by obeying His voice, and by holding fast to Him; for this is your life and the length of your days, that you may live in the land which the¬†Lord¬†swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give them.‚ÄĚ

Deuteronomy 30:20 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

‚ÄúHe¬†is a tower of deliverance to His king, And shows¬†lovingkindness to His anointed, To David and his descendants forever.‚ÄĚ

2 Samuel 22:51 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

[ Solomon’s Prayer ] Then Solomon said, “You have shown great lovingkindness to Your servant David my father, according as he walked before You in truth and righteousness and uprightness of heart toward You; and You have reserved for him this great lovingkindness, that You have given him a son to sit on his throne, as it is this day.  

1 Kings 3:6 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

O give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; For His lovingkindness is everlasting.

1 Chronicles 16:34 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

He who gets wisdom loves his own soul; He who keeps understanding will find good.
