Luke 10:19   . . . and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
 
Isaiah 43:2  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.
 
Just as soon as we turn toward Him with loving confidence, and say, :Thy will be done,” whatever chills or cripples or enslaves our spirits,
                clogs their powers, or hinders their development,
                                melts away in the sunshine of his sympathy,
He does not free us from the pain, but from its power to dull the sensibilities;
            not from poverty and care, but from their tendency to narrow and
                   harden; not from calumny, but from the maddening poison in 
                         its sting; not from disappointment, but from the hopelessness
                              and bitterness of  thought which it so often engenders,
We attain unto this perfect liberty
when we rise superior to untoward circumstances,
                triumph over the pain and weakness of disease,
                                over unjust criticism,
                                the wreck of earthly hopes,
                                over promptings to envy,
                                every sordid and selfish desire,
                                every unhallowed longing,
                                every doubt of God’s wisdom and love and kindly care,
when we rise into an atmosphere of undaunted moral courage,
                of restful content,
                                of child-like trust,
                                                of holy, all-conquering calm.    William W. Kinsley
