God's Sovereignty in Sanctification

Promises I've been contemplating lately, for when we grow weary of being good in our own strength: "Those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint." (Isaiah 40:31)

Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. (Philippians 1:6)

Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. (Hebrews 10:23)

May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 24The one who calls you is faithful and he will do it. (1 Thess 5:23-24)

Any other favorite promise verses that I should have in my list?
