Psalm 33:12 (NASB)
12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord,
The people whom He has chosen for His own inheritance.
Psalm 127:1 (NASB)
127 Unless the Lord builds the house,
They labor in vain who build it;
Unless the Lord guards the city,
The watchman keeps awake in vain.
2 Corinthians 10:3-4 (KJV)
3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:
4 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)
Acts 4:24-31 (TLB)
24 Then all the believers united in this prayer:
“O Lord, Creator of heaven and earth and of the sea and everything in them—
25You spoke long ago by the Holy Spirit through our ancestor King David, your servant, saying, ‘Why do the heathen rage against the Lord, and the foolish nations plan their little plots against Almighty God?
26 The kings of the earth unite to fight against him and against the anointed Son of God!’
27 “That is what is happening here in this city today! For Herod the king, and Pontius Pilate the governor, and all the Romans—as well as the people of Israel—are united against Jesus, your anointed Son, your holy servant.
28 They won’t stop at anything that you in your wise power will let them do.
29 And now, O Lord, hear their threats, and grant to your servants great boldness in their preaching,
30 and send your healing power, and may miracles and wonders be done by the name of your holy servant Jesus.”
31 After this prayer, the building where they were meeting shook, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and boldly preached God’s message.
