I AM sent Jesus and Holy Spirit to Man on very specific missions.
 
Jesus’ disciples [Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John] not only recorded Jesus’ teachings, but the events during Jesus’ final days as a Man.
 
To receive comfort as you realize Jesus’ choices were made for YOU, individually, to restore you to relationship with God as your Father, and to read Jesus’ Words in context as they occurred, please read all four of these New Testament Books in the Bible of your choice.
 
John 20:26
    26Eight days later His disciples were again in the house, and Thomas was with them. Jesus came, though they were behind closed doors, and stood among them and said, Peace to you!
 
John 21:3-11
    3Simon Peter said to them, I am going fishing! They said to him, And we are coming with you! So they went out and got into the boat, and throughout that night they caught nothing.
    4Morning was already breaking when Jesus came to the beach and stood there. However, the disciples did not know that it was Jesus.
    5So Jesus said to them, Boys (children), you do not have any meat (fish), do you? [Have you caught anything to eat along with your bread?] They answered Him, No!
    6And He said to them, Cast the net on the right side of the boat and you will find [some]. So they cast the net, and now they were not able to haul it in for such a big catch (mass, quantity) of fish [was in it].
    7Then the disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, It is the Lord! Simon Peter, hearing him say that it was the Lord, put (girded) on his upper garment (his fisherman's coat, his outer tunic)--for he was stripped [for work]--and sprang into the sea.
    8And the other disciples came in the small boat, for they were not far from shore, only some hundred yards away, dragging the net full of fish.
    9When they got out on land (the beach), they saw a fire of coals there and fish lying on it [cooking], and bread.
    10Jesus said to them, Bring some of the fish which you have just caught.
    11So Simon Peter went aboard and hauled the net to land, full of large fish, 153 of them; and [though] there were so many of them, the net was not torn.
 
Acts 26:16-18
    16But arise and stand upon your feet; for I have appeared to you for this purpose, that I might appoint you to serve as [My] minister and to bear witness both to what you have seen of Me and to that in which I will appear to you,
    17Choosing you out [selecting you for Myself] and delivering you from among this people and the Gentiles to whom I AM sending you--
    18To open their eyes that they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of satan to God, so that they may thus receive forgiveness and release from their sins and a place and portion among those who are consecrated and purified by faith in Me.
 
Hebrews 2:13
    13And again He [Jesus] says, My trust and assured reliance and confident hope shall be fixed in Him. And yet again, Here I AM, I and the children whom God has given Me.

    8I AM the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, says the Lord God, He Who is and Who was and Who is to come, the Almighty (the Ruler of all).
 
Revelation 1:17-18
    17When I [John] saw Him, I fell at His feet as if dead. But He laid His right hand on me and said, Do not be afraid! I AM the First and the Last,
    18And the Ever-living One [I AM living in the eternity of the eternities]. I died, but see, I AM alive forevermore; and I possess the keys of death and Hades (the realm of the dead).
 
Revelation 3:8
    8I know your [record of] works and what you are doing. See! I have set before you a door wide open which no one is able to shut; I know that you have but little power, and yet you have kept My Word and guarded My message and have not renounced or denied My Name.
 
Revelation 3:20
    20Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears and listens to and heeds My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will eat with him, and he [will eat] with Me.
 
Revelation 21:1-7
    1Then I saw a new sky (heaven) and a new earth, for the former sky and the former earth had passed away (vanished), and there no longer existed any sea.
    2And I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, all arrayed like a bride beautified and adorned for her husband;
    3Then I heard a mighty voice from the throne and I perceived its distinct words, saying, See! The abode of God is with men, and He will live (encamp, tent) among them; and they shall be His people, and God shall personally be with them and be their God.
    4God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and death shall be no more, neither shall there be anguish (sorrow and mourning) nor grief nor pain any more, for the old conditions and the former order of things have passed away.
    5And He Who is seated on the throne said, See! I make all things new. Also He said, Record this, for these sayings are faithful (accurate, incorruptible, and trustworthy) and true (genuine).
    6And He [further] said to me, It is done! I AM the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To the thirsty I [Myself] will give water without price from the fountain (springs) of the water of Life.
    7He who is victorious shall inherit all these things, and I will be God to him and he shall be My son.
 
Revelation 22:13
    13I AM the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last (the Before all and the End of all).


 

Father God designed each of us for relationship with Him. It is His desire that we live our lives with Him, and through Him, enabled by Him.
 
He doesn’t want us to simply know about Him. He wants us to know Him for Who He is.
 
He wants us to know Him so well that we can rest in the relationship, knowing that He will never fail us or forsake us. He wants us to be secure in the fact that He hears our cries. He sees others’ wrong choices against us. Because He exists outside of time, and because He is the Beginning and End of All Things, He knows and understands with greater insights than we know ourselves why we react to others’ wrong choices against us the way we do.
 
He hears. He sees. He knows. He understands.
 
Through the Book of Psalms, Father God allows us to see how others interacted with God. Underlying this collection of written feelings demonstrates the comfort we can experience in relationship with our Father God.
 
No matter what your negative experience, you are wisest when you take this feeling to your Father God and ask Him to solve your situation.
 
Psalm 5:11-12
    11But let all those who take refuge and put their trust in You rejoice; let them ever sing and shout for joy, because You make a covering over them and defend them; let those also who love Your Name be joyful in You and be in high spirits.
    12For You, Lord, will bless the [uncompromisingly] righteous [him who is upright and in right standing with You]; as with a shield You will surround him with goodwill (pleasure and favor).

Psalm 15:1-5
    1Lord, who shall dwell [temporarily] in Your tabernacle? Who shall dwell [permanently] on Your holy hill?
    2He who walks and lives uprightly and blamelessly, who works rightness and justice and speaks and thinks the truth in his heart,
    3He who does not slander with his tongue, nor does evil to his friend, nor takes up a reproach against his neighbor;
    4In whose eyes a vile person is despised, but he who honors those who fear the Lord (who revere and worship Him); who swears to his own hurt and does not change;
    5[He who] does not put out his money for interest [to one of his own people] and who will not take a bribe against the innocent. He who does these things shall never be moved.
 
Psalm 16:11
    11You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy, at Your right hand there are pleasures forevermore.
 
Psalm 22:24
    24For He has not despised or abhorred the affliction of the afflicted; neither has He hidden His face from him, but when he cried to Him, He heard.
 
Psalm 25:14
    14The secret [of the sweet, satisfying companionship] of the Lord have they who fear (revere and worship) Him, and He will show them His covenant and reveal to them its [deep, inner] meaning.
 
Psalm 27:10
    10Although my father and my mother have forsaken me, yet the Lord will take me up [adopt me as His child].
 
Psalm 29:All
    1Ascribe to the Lord, O sons of the mighty, ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.
    2Give to the Lord the glory due to His Name; worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness or in holy array.
    3The voice of the Lord is upon the waters; the God of glory thunders; the Lord is upon many (great) waters.
    4The voice of the Lord is powerful; the voice of the Lord is full of majesty.
    5The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars; yes, the Lord breaks in pieces the cedars of Lebanon.
    6He makes them also to skip like a calf; Lebanon and Sirion (Mount Hermon) like a young, wild ox.
    7The voice of the Lord splits and flashes forth forked lightning.
    8The voice of the Lord makes the wilderness tremble; the Lord shakes the Wilderness of Kadesh.
    9The voice of the Lord makes the hinds bring forth their young, and His voice strips bare the forests, while in His temple everyone is saying, Glory!
    10The Lord sat as King over the deluge; the Lord [still] sits as King [and] forever!
    11The Lord will give [unyielding and impenetrable] strength to His people; the Lord will bless His people with peace.
 
Psalm 30:2
    2O Lord my God, I cried to You and You have healed me.
 
Psalm 31:7-8
    7I will be glad and rejoice in Your mercy and steadfast love, because You have seen my affliction, You have taken note of my life's distresses,

Psalm 31:19-20
    19Oh, how great is Your goodness, which You have laid up for those who fear, revere, and worship You, goodness which You have wrought [made] for those who trust and take refuge in You before the sons of men!
    20In the secret place of Your presence You hide them from the plots of men; You keep them secretly in Your pavilion from the strife of tongues.
 
Psalm 33:10-22
    10The Lord brings the counsel of the nations to nought [nothing]; He makes the thoughts and plans of the peoples of no effect.
    11The counsel of the Lord stands forever, the thoughts of His heart through all generations.
    12Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people He has chosen as His heritage.
    13The Lord looks from heaven, He beholds all the sons of men;
    14From His dwelling place He looks [intently] upon all the inhabitants of the earth--
    15He Who fashions the hearts of them all, Who considers all their doings.
    16No king is saved by the great size and power of his army; a mighty man is not delivered by [his] much strength.
    17A horse is devoid of [lacks] value for victory; neither does he deliver any by his great power.
    18Behold, the Lord's eye is upon those who fear Him [who revere and worship Him with awe], who wait for Him and hope in His mercy and loving-kindness,
    19To deliver them from death and keep them alive in famine.
    20Our inner selves wait [earnestly] for the Lord; He is our Help and our Shield.
    21For in Him does our heart rejoice, because we have trusted (relied on and been confident) in His holy Name.
    22Let Your mercy and loving-kindness, O Lord, be upon us, in proportion to our waiting and hoping for You.
 
Psalm 37:3-11
    3Trust (lean on, rely on, and be confident) in the Lord and do good; so shall you dwell in the land and feed surely on His faithfulness, and truly you shall be fed.
    4Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He will give you the desires and secret petitions of your heart.
    5Commit your way to the Lord [roll and repose each care of your load on Him]; trust (lean on, rely on, and be confident) also in Him and He will bring it to pass.
    6And He will make your uprightness and right standing with God go forth as the light, and your justice and right as [the shining sun of] the noonday.
    7Be still and rest in the Lord; wait for Him and patiently lean yourself upon Him; fret not yourself because of him who prospers in his way, because of the man who brings wicked devices to pass.
    8Cease from anger and forsake wrath; fret not yourself--it tends only to evildoing.
    9For evildoers shall be cut off, but those who wait and hope and look for the Lord [in the end] shall inherit the earth.
    10For yet a little while, and the evildoers will be no more; though you look with care where they used to be, they will not be found.
    11But the meek [in the end] shall inherit the earth and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.
 
Psalm 37:23-26
    23The steps of a [good] man are directed and established by the Lord when He delights in his way [and He busies Himself with his every step].
    24Though he falls, he shall not be utterly cast down, for the Lord grasps his hand in support and upholds him.
    25I have been young and now am old, yet have I not seen the [uncompromisingly] righteous forsaken or their seed begging bread.
    26All day long they are merciful and deal graciously; they lend, and their offspring are blessed.
 
Psalm 41:12
    12And as for me, You have upheld me in my integrity and set me in Your presence forever.
 
Psalm 46:1-6
    1God is our Refuge and Strength [mighty and impenetrable to temptation], a very present and well-proved help in trouble.
    2Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change and though the mountains be shaken into the midst of the seas,
    3Though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains tremble at its swelling and tumult. Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!
    4There is a river whose streams shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the Most High.
    5God is in the midst of her, she shall not be moved; God will help her right early [at the dawn of the morning].
    6The nations raged, the kingdoms tottered and were moved; He uttered His voice, the earth melted.
 
Psalm 48:9-10
    9We have thought of Your steadfast love, O God, in the midst of Your temple.
    10As is Your Name, O God, so is Your praise to the ends of the earth; Your right hand is full of righteousness (rightness and justice).
 
Psalm 51:1-17
    1Have mercy upon me, O God, according to Your steadfast love; according to the multitude of Your tender mercy and loving-kindness blot out my transgressions.
    2Wash me thoroughly [and repeatedly] from my iniquity and guilt and cleanse me and make me wholly pure from my sin!
    3For I am conscious of my transgressions and I acknowledge them; my sin is ever before me.
    4Against You, You only, have I sinned and done that which is evil in Your sight, so that You are justified in Your sentence and faultless in Your judgment.
    5Behold, I was brought forth in [a state of] iniquity; my mother was sinful who conceived me [and I too am sinful].
    6Behold, You desire truth in the inner being; make me therefore to know wisdom in my inmost heart.
    7Purify me with hyssop, and I shall be clean [ceremonially]; wash me, and I shall [in reality] be whiter than snow.
    8Make me to hear joy and gladness and be satisfied; let the bones which You have broken rejoice.
    9Hide Your face from my sins and blot out all my guilt and iniquities.
    10Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right, persevering, and steadfast spirit within me.
    11Cast me not away from Your presence and take not Your Holy Spirit from me.
    12Restore to me the joy of Your salvation and uphold me with a willing spirit.
    13Then will I teach transgressors Your ways, and sinners shall be converted and return to You.
    14Deliver me from bloodguiltiness and death, O God, the God of my salvation, and my tongue shall sing aloud of Your righteousness (Your rightness and Your justice).
    15O Lord, open my lips, and my mouth shall show forth Your praise.
    16For You delight not in sacrifice, or else would I give it; You find no pleasure in burnt offering.
    17My sacrifice [the sacrifice acceptable] to God is a broken spirit; a broken and a contrite heart [broken down with sorrow for sin and humbly and thoroughly penitent], such, O God, You will not despise.
 
Psalm 55:22
    22Cast your burden on the Lord [releasing the weight of it] and He will sustain you; He will never allow the [consistently] righteous to be moved (made to slip, fall, or fail).

    8You number and record my wanderings; put my tears into Your bottle--are they not in Your book?

Psalm 59:10
    10My God in His mercy and steadfast love will meet me; God will let me look [triumphantly] on my enemies (those who lie in wait for me).
 
Psalm 59:16-17
    16But I will sing of Your mighty strength and power; yes, I will sing aloud of Your mercy and loving-kindness in the morning; for You have been to me a defense (a fortress and a high tower) and a refuge in the day of my distress.
    17Unto You, O my Strength, I will sing praises; for God is my Defense, my Fortress, and High Tower, the God Who shows me mercy and steadfast love.
 
Psalm 61:3-5
    3For You have been a shelter and a refuge for me, a strong tower against the adversary.
    4I will dwell in Your tabernacle forever; let me find refuge and trust in the shelter of Your wings. Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!
    5For You, O God, have heard my vows; You have given me the heritage of those who fear, revere, and honor Your Name.
 
Psalm 63:1-8
    1O God, You are my God, earnestly will I seek You; my inner self thirsts for You, my flesh longs and is faint for You, in a dry and weary land where no water is.
    2So I have looked upon You in the sanctuary to see Your power and Your glory.
    3Because Your loving-kindness is better than life, my lips shall praise You.
    4So will I bless You while I live; I will lift up my hands in Your Name.
    5My whole being shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness; and my mouth shall praise You with joyful lips
    6When I remember You upon my bed and meditate on You in the night watches.
    7For You have been my help, and in the shadow of Your wings will I rejoice.
    8My whole being follows hard after You and clings closely to You; Your right hand upholds me.
 
Psalm 65:4-13
    4Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) is the man whom You choose and cause to come near, that he may dwell in Your courts! We shall be satisfied with the goodness of Your house, Your holy temple.
    5By fearful and glorious things [that terrify the wicked but make the godly sing praises] do You answer us in righteousness (rightness and justice), O God of our salvation, You Who are the confidence and hope of all the ends of the earth and of those far off on the seas;
    6Who by [Your] might have founded the mountains, being girded with power,
    7Who still the roaring of the seas, the roaring of their waves, and the tumult of the peoples,
    8So that those who dwell in earth's farthest parts are afraid of [nature's] signs of Your presence. You make the places where morning and evening have birth to shout for joy.
    9You visit the earth and saturate it with water; You greatly enrich it; the river of God is full of water; You provide them with grain when You have so prepared the earth.
    10You water the field's furrows abundantly, You settle the ridges of it; You make the soil soft with showers, blessing the sprouting of its vegetation.
    11You crown the year with Your bounty and goodness, and the tracks of Your [chariot wheels] drip with fatness.
    12The [luxuriant] pastures in the uncultivated country drip [with moisture], and the hills gird themselves with joy.
    13The meadows are clothed with flocks, the valleys also are covered with grain; they shout for joy and sing together.
 
Psalm 68:9-10
    9You, O God, did send a plentiful rain; You did restore and confirm Your heritage when it languished and was weary.
    10Your flock found a dwelling place in it; You, O God, in Your goodness did provide for the poor and needy.
 
Psalm 68:19
    19Blessed be the Lord, Who bears our burdens and carries us day by day, even the God Who is our salvation! Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!
 
Psalm 68:24
    24They see Your goings, O God, even the [solemn processions] of my God, my King, into the sanctuary [in holiness].
 
Psalm 69:13-16
    13But as for me, my prayer is to You, O Lord. At an acceptable and opportune time, O God, in the multitude of Your mercy and the abundance of Your loving-kindness hear me, and in the truth and faithfulness of Your salvation answer me.
    14Rescue me out of the mire, and let me not sink; let me be delivered from those who hate me and from out of the deep waters.
    15Let not the floodwaters overflow and overwhelm me, neither let the deep swallow me up nor the [dug] pit [with water perhaps in the bottom] close its mouth over me.
    16Hear and answer me, O Lord, for Your loving-kindness is sweet and comforting; according to Your plenteous tender mercy and steadfast love turn to me.
 
Psalm 69:33
    33For the Lord hears the poor and needy and despises not His prisoners (His miserable and wounded ones).
 
Psalm 71:1-8
    1In You, O Lord, do I put my trust and confidently take refuge; let me never be put to shame or confusion!
    2Deliver me in Your righteousness and cause me to escape; bow down Your ear to me and save me!
    3Be to me a rock of refuge in which to dwell, and a sheltering stronghold to which I may continually resort, which You have appointed to save me, for You are my Rock and my Fortress.
    4Rescue me, O my God, out of the hand of the wicked, out of the grasp of the unrighteous and ruthless man.
    5For You are my hope; O Lord God, You are my trust from my youth and the source of my confidence.
    6Upon You have I leaned and relied from birth; You are He Who took me from my mother's womb and You have been my benefactor from that day. My praise is continually of You.
    7I am as a wonder and surprise to many, but You are my strong refuge.
    8My mouth shall be filled with Your praise and with Your honor all the day.
 
Psalm 71:14-18
    14But I will hope continually, and will praise You yet more and more.
    15My mouth shall tell of Your righteous acts and of Your deeds of salvation all the day, for their number is more than I know.
    16I will come in the strength and with the mighty acts of the Lord God; I will mention and praise Your righteousness, even Yours alone.
    17O God, You have taught me from my youth, and hitherto have I declared Your wondrous works.
    18Yes, even when I am old and gray-headed, O God, forsake me not, [but keep me alive] until I have declared Your mighty strength to [this] generation, and Your might and power to all that are to come.
 
Psalm 71:19
    19Your righteousness also, O God, is very high [reaching to the heavens], You Who have done great things; O God, who is like You, or who is Your equal?

    13Your way, O God, is in the sanctuary [in holiness, away from sin and guilt]. Who is a great God like our God?
    14You are the God Who does wonders; You have demonstrated Your power among the peoples.
 
Psalm 78:69
    69And He built His sanctuary [exalted] like the heights [of the heavens] and like the earth which He established forever.
 
Psalm 85:7-13
    7Show us Your mercy and loving-kindness, O Lord, and grant us Your salvation.
    8I will listen [with expectancy] to what God the Lord will say, for He will speak peace to His people, to His saints (those who are in right standing with Him)--but let them not turn again to [self-confident] folly.
    9Surely His salvation is near to those who reverently and worshipfully fear Him, [and is ready to be appropriated] that [the manifest presence of God, His] glory may tabernacle and abide in our land.
    10Mercy and loving-kindness and truth have met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other.
    11Truth shall spring up from the earth, and righteousness shall look down from heaven.
    12Yes, the Lord will give what is good, and our land will yield its increase.
    13Righteousness shall go before Him and shall make His footsteps a way in which to walk.
 
Psalm 86:All
    1Incline your ear, O Lord, and answer me, for I am poor and distressed, needy and desiring.
    2Preserve my life, for I am godly and dedicated; O my God, save Your servant, for I trust in You [leaning and believing on You, committing all and confidently looking to You, without fear or doubt].
    3Be merciful and gracious to me, O Lord, for to You do I cry all the day.
    4Make me, Your servant, to rejoice, O Lord, for to You do I lift myself up.
    5For You, O Lord, are good, and ready to forgive [our trespasses, sending them away, letting them go completely and forever]; and You are abundant in mercy and loving-kindness to all those who call upon You.
    6Give ear, O Lord, to my prayer; and listen to the cry of my supplications.
    7In the day of my trouble I will call on You, for You will answer me.
    8There is none like unto You among the gods, O Lord, neither are their works like unto Yours.
    9All nations whom You have made shall come and fall down before You, O Lord; and they shall glorify Your Name.
    10For You are great and work wonders! You alone are God.
    11Teach me Your way, O Lord, that I may walk and live in Your truth; direct and unite my heart [solely, reverently] to fear and honor Your Name.
    12I will confess and praise You, O Lord my God, with my whole (united) heart; and I will glorify Your Name forevermore.
    13For great is Your mercy and loving-kindness toward me; and You have delivered me from the depths of Sheol [from the exceeding depths of affliction].
    14O God, the proud and insolent are risen against me; a rabble of violent and ruthless men has sought and demanded my life, and they have not set You before them.
    15But You, O Lord, are a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in mercy and loving-kindness and truth.
    16O turn to me and have mercy and be gracious to me; grant strength (might and inflexibility to temptation) to Your servant and save the son of Your handmaiden.
    17Show me a sign of [Your evident] goodwill and favor, that those who hate me may see it and be put to shame, because You, Lord, [will show Your approval of me when You] help and comfort me.
 
Psalm 89:1-2
    1I will sing of the mercy and loving-kindness of the Lord forever; with my mouth will I make known Your faithfulness from generation to generation.
    2For I have said, mercy and loving-kindness shall be built up forever; Your faithfulness will You establish in the very heavens [unchangeable and perpetual].
