…they did not believe God
or trust him to care for them.
But he commanded the skies to open;
he opened the doors of heaven.
He rained down manna for them to eat;
he gave them bread from heaven.

using my name,
and you will receive,

“All who love me will do what I say.
My Father will love them,
and we will come
and make our home with each of them.
When I am raised to life again,
you will know that I am in my Father,
and you are in me,
and I am in you.
Those who accept my commandments and obey them
are the ones who love me.
And because they love me,
my Father will love them.
And I will love them
and reveal myself to each of them.
Jesus told him,
I am the way, the truth, and the life.
No one can come to the Father
except through me.
Come and listen, all you who fear God,
and I will tell you what he did for me.
For I cried out to him for help,
praising him as I spoke.
If I had not confessed the sin in my heart,
the LORD would not have listened.
But God did listen!
He paid attention to my prayer.
Praise God, who did not ignore my prayer
or withdraw his unfailing love from me.
