“I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?” — Heb 13:6 NET
Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will trouble, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? No, in all these things we have complete victory through him who loved us!
“Do not be afraid of those who kill the body, and after that have nothing more they can do. But I will warn you whom you should fear: Fear the one who, after the killing, has authority to throw you into hell. Yes, I tell you, fear him!”
“Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to them. Blessed are you when people insult you and persecute you and say all kinds of evil things about you falsely on account of me. Rejoice and be glad because your reward is great in heaven.”—“But I do not consider my life worth anything to myself, so that I may finish my task.”—I will speak about your regulations before kings and not be ashamed.

He placed my feet on a rock. — Ps 40:2 NET
The rock was Christ.—Simon Peter answered, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”… “On this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overpower it.”—“And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among people by which we must be saved.”
Assurance that faith brings,… Hold unwaveringly to the hope that we confess.—Faith without doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed around by the wind.
Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will trouble, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword?… No, in all these things we have complete victory through him who loved us!—nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in creation will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
