The Lord himself goes before you

The Lord himself … will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.

For the Lord your God is a merciful God; he will not abandon or destroy you or forget the covenant with your ancestors, which he confirmed to them by oath.

I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go. I will not leave you. … If your Presence does not go with us, do not send us up from here. … Lord, I know that people’s lives are not their own; it is not for them to direct their steps. … The Lord went ahead to guide them on their way. … The Lord will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail.

The Lord makes firm the steps of the one who delights in him; though he may stumble, he will not fall, for the Lord upholds him with his hand. … You will stand firm and without fear. … He has preserved our lives and kept our feet from slipping.

You hold me by my right hand. You guide me with your counsel, and afterward you will take me into glory. … For this God is our God for ever and ever; he will be our guide even to the end. … For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
