  •    Isaiah 43:1-5 'When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;    and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you;when you walk through fire you shall not be burned,    and the flame shall not consume you.
    For I am the LORD your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior.I give Egypt as your ransom, Cush and Seba in exchange for you. Because you are precious in my eyes,    and honored, and I love you,I give men in return for you,
        peoples in exchange for your life. Fear not, for I am with you;    I will bring your offspring from the east, and from the west I will gather you. But now thus says the Lord, he who created you, O Jacob, he who formed you, O Israel:“Fear not, for I have redeemed you;    I have called you by name, you are mine.'
  • Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "Plans to prosper and not to harm you, plans to give you a future and a hope."
  • Philippians 1:6 'And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ,'
  • Philippians 1:27 'Only let your manner of life be worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or am absent, I may hear of you that you are standing firm in one spirit, with one mind striving side by side for the faith of the gospel.'
  • Ephesians 2:8-10 'For it is by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are his workmanship created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.'
  • Psalm 34:5 'Those who look to him are radiant, and their faces shall never be ashamed.'
  • Psalm 27:1,3 'The LORD is my light and my salvation, whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life, of whom shall I be afraid?... Though an army besiege me, my heart will not fear; though war break out against me, even then I will be confident.'
  • Psalm 143
