Acts 13:22 NLT
“But God removed Saul and replaced him with David, a man about
whom God said, ‘I have found David son of Jesse, a man after my
own heart. He will do everything I want him to do.’”

    Psalm 139:23-24 NKJ
    Search me, O God, and know my heart; try me, and know my
    anxieties; and see if there is any wicked way in me, and lead me in
    the way everlasting.
    Proverbs 4:23 NLT
    Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your
    Psalm 139:23-24 MSG
    Investigate my life, O God, find out everything about me; crossexamine and test me, get a clear picture of what I’m about; see for
    yourself whether I’ve done anything wrong—then guide me on the
    road to eternal life.
    Psalm 51:3-12 NLT
    For I recognize my rebellion; it haunts me day and night. Against you,
    and you alone, have I sinned; I have done what is evil in your sight.
    You will be proved right in what you say, and your judgment against
    me is just. For I was born a sinner—yes, from the moment my mother
    conceived me. But you desire honesty from the womb, teaching me
    wisdom even there. Purify me from my sins, and I will be clean; wash
    me, and I will be whiter than snow. Oh, give me back my joy again;
    you have broken me—now let me rejoice. Don’t keep looking at my
    sins. Remove the stain of my guilt. Create in me a clean heart, O
    God. Renew a loyal spirit within me. Do not banish me from your
    presence, and don’t take your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the
    joy of your salvation, and make me willing to obey you.
    Psalm 51:17 NLT
    The sacrifice you desire is a broken spirit. You will not reject a broken
    and repentant heart, O God.
    Psalm 13:1-2 NLT
    O Lord, how long will you forget me? Forever? How long will you look
    the other way? How long must I struggle with anguish in my soul, with
    sorrow in my heart every day? How long will my enemy have the
    upper hand?
    Psalm 13:5-6 NLT
    But I trust in your unfailing love. I will rejoice because you have
    rescued me. I will sing to the Lord because he is good to me.
    Psalm 28:7 NIV
    The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he
    helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him.


    Psalm 91:1-16 MSG
    You who sit down in the High God’s presence, spend the night in
    Shaddai’s shadow, say this: “God, you’re my refuge. I trust in you and
    I’m safe!” That’s right—he rescues you from hidden traps, shields you
    from deadly hazards. His huge outstretched arms protect you—under
    them you’re perfectly safe; his arms fend off all harm. Fear nothing—
    not wild wolves in the night, not flying arrows in the day, not disease
    that prowls through the darkness, not disaster that erupts at high
    noon. Even though others succumb all around, drop like flies right
    and left, no harm will even graze you. You’ll stand untouched, watch
    it all from a distance, watch the wicked turn into corpses. Yes,
    because God’s your refuge, the High God your very own home, evil
    can’t get close to you, harm can’t get through the door. He ordered
    his angels to guard you wherever you go. If you stumble, they’ll catch
    you; their job is to keep you from falling. You’ll walk unharmed among
    lions and snakes, and kick young lions and serpents from the path. “If
    you’ll hold on to me for dear life,” says God, “I’ll get you out of any
    trouble. I’ll give you the best of care if you’ll only get to know and trust
    me. Call me and I’ll answer, be at your side in bad times; I’ll rescue
    you, then throw you a party. I’ll give you a long life, give you a long
    drink of salvation!”
    Psalm 138:6 AMP
    Though the Lord is exalted, He regards the lowly [and invites them
    into His fellowship]; but the proud and haughty He knows from a
    Psalm 86:12 NKJ
    I will praise You, O Lord my God, with all my heart, and I will glorify
    Your name forevermore.
    Psalm 95:6 NKJ
    Oh come, let us worship and bow down; let us kneel before the Lord
    our Maker.
    Psalm 100:1-3 NKJ
    Make a joyful shout to the Lord, all you lands! Serve the Lord with
    gladness; come before His presence with singing. Know that the
    Lord, He is God; it is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; we
    are His people and the sheep of His pasture.
    Psalm 111:1 NKJ
    Praise the Lord! I will praise the Lord with my whole heart, in the
    assembly of the upright and in the congregation.
    Psalm 149:1-4 NKJ
    Praise the Lord! Sing to the Lord a new song, and His praise in the
    assembly of saints. Let Israel rejoice in their Maker; let the children of
    Zion be joyful in their King. Let them praise His name with the dance;
    let them sing praises to Him with the timbrel and harp. For the Lord
    takes pleasure in His people; He will beautify the humble with
    Psalm 150:1-6 NKJ
    Praise the Lord! Praise God in His sanctuary; praise Him in His
    mighty firmament! Praise Him for His mighty acts; praise Him
    according to His excellent greatness! Praise Him with the sound of
    the trumpet; praise Him with the lute and harp! Praise Him with the
    timbrel and dance; praise Him with stringed instruments and flutes!
    Praise Him with loud cymbals; praise Him with clashing cymbals! Let
    everything that has breath praise the Lord. Praise the Lord!
