1. -“You are good and You do good; Teach me Your statutes.”-{Psalm 119:68}

2, – “In the same way the Spirit also helps our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words; and He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He intercedes for the saints according to the will of God. And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. For those whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son, so that He would be the firstborn among many brethren; and these whom He predestined, He also called; and these whom He called, He also justified; and these whom He justified, He also glorified.”-{Romans 8:26-30}

3.- “Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.”-{James 1:17}
