I AM the Heavenly Father. I want to release hope into you pertaining to My character and nature. I want you to know, I do great things. I do marvelous things that cannot be numbered. I give rain on the earth. I send water on the fields. I set on high those who are lowly. Those who mourn I lift to safety. I frustrate the devices of the crafty. I save the needy from the sword. I give hope to the poor. I cause injustice to shut her mouth. I bind up bruises and make whole.
I deliver you in troubles, and in Me no evil shall touch you. In famine, I shall redeem you from death. In war, I shall save you from the power of the sword. I hide you from the scourge of the tongue. I make you not afraid of destruction if it comes. I cause you to laugh at destruction and famine. I cause you not to be afraid of the beasts of the earth, and you shall be at peace with them. I cause your house to be in peace, and keep the thief away. I cause your descendants to be many, and your offspring like the grass of the earth. I give you long life. (Job 5:8-27.) This is My character and nature.
8 “But as for me, I would seek God,
And to God I would commit my cause—
9 Who does great things, and unsearchable,
Marvelous things without number.
10 He gives rain on the earth,
And sends waters on the fields.
11 He sets on high those who are lowly,
And those who mourn are lifted to safety.
12 He frustrates the devices of the crafty,
So that their hands cannot carry out their plans.
13 He catches the wise in their own craftiness,
And the counsel of the cunning comes quickly upon them.
14 They meet with darkness in the daytime,
And grope at noontime as in the night.
15 But He saves the needy from the sword,
From the mouth of the mighty,
And from their hand.
16 So the poor have hope,
And injustice shuts her mouth.
17 “Behold, happy is the man whom God corrects;
Therefore do not despise the chastening of the Almighty.
18 For He bruises, but He binds up;
He wounds, but His hands make whole.
19 He shall deliver you in six troubles,
Yes, in seven no evil shall touch you.
20 In famine He shall redeem you from death,
And in war from the power of the sword.
21 You shall be hidden from the scourge of the tongue,
And you shall not be afraid of destruction when it comes.
22 You shall laugh at destruction and famine,
And you shall not be afraid of the beasts of the earth.
23 For you shall have a covenant with the stones of the field,
And the beasts of the field shall be at peace with you.
24 You shall know that your tent is in peace;
You shall visit your dwelling and find nothing amiss.
25 You shall also know that your descendants shall be many,
And your offspring like the grass of the earth.
26 You shall come to the grave at a full age,
As a sheaf of grain ripens in its season.
27 Behold, this we have searched out;
It is true.
Hear it, and know for yourself.”
