He will not withhold good from you

Psalm 84:11 – “For the Lord God is a sun and shield: the LORD will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.” Our God is a giver of good gifts.

Be made whole

Mark 10:52 – “And Jesus said unto him, Go thy way; thy faith hath made thee whole.
