    Oh that's where the verse is! I've been wondering and love it where it says,
    "You will go out in joy

    and be led forth in peace;

    the mountains and hills

    will burst into song before you,

    and all the trees of the field

    will clap their hands." Is. 55:12

    I love that!

    I love these verses in Pslams. Yet strangely I never hear anyone mention these. So many wonderful promises contained in them.

    If you make the Lord your refuge,

    if you make the Most High your shelter,
    no evil will conquer you;

    no plague will come near your home.
    For he will order his angels
 to protect you wherever you go.
    They will hold you up with their hands
 so you won't even hurt your foot on a stone.
    You will trample upon lions and cobras;

    you will crush fierce lions and serpents under your feet!
    The Lord says, “I will rescue those who love me.

    I will protect those who trust in my name. When they call on me, I will answer;
    
 I will be with them in trouble.

    I will rescue and honor them.
    I will reward them with a long life
 and give them my salvation.” --Psalm 91:9-16 NLT

    Psalm 104.

    I love the poetic way it speaks of the grandeur of God and I particularly appreciate its place in the evening prayers.

    1John 3:9,10 "No one who is born of God will continue to sin, because God’s seed remains in him; he cannot go on sinning, because he has been born of God. This is how we know who the children of God are and who the children of the devil are: Anyone who does not do what is right is not a child of God; nor is anyone who does not love his brother."

    It speaks of the effect of regeneration being such the believe loses the ability to continue to live in sin, and consequently characteristically does what is right and loves others who have likewise been born of God, this being so inevitable that it is the primary indicator that one has been born of God.

    Thus while under the Old Covenant behavior was regulated through fear of condemnation, under the New Covenant behavior is regulated through regeneration such that it becomes natural to do what is right.
