Verses
Psalm 138:8-9  “Though I walk in the midst of trouble, thou wilt revive me: thou shalt stretch forth thine hand against the wrath of mine enemies, and thy right hand shall save me. The LORD will perfect that which concerneth me: thy mercy, O LORD, endureth forever: forsake not the works of thine own hands.”
Isaiah 40:31 But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
Isaiah 43:1-2,7 But now thus saith the LORD that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine. When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee…Even every one that is called by my name: for I have created him for my glory, I have formed him; yea, I have made him.

Psalm 145:3, 8,14,18 Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised; and his greatness is unsearchable. The LORD is gracious, and full of compassion; slow to anger, and of great mercy. The LORD upholdeth all that fall, and raiseth up all those that be bowed down. The LORD is nigh unto all them that call upon him, to all that call upon him in truth.

Psalm 146:5 Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the LORD his God:
