ISAIAH 40:26 "lift your eyes to the heavens: who created all these? He who brings out the starry host one by one, and calls them each by name. because of His great power and mighty strength, not one of them is missing."
MATTHEW 6:25-27, 33-34 "do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink, or about your body, or what you will wear. is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? look at the birds of the air, they do not reap or sow or stow away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. are you not much more valuable than they? who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life? seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. so do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. each day has enough trouble of its own."
LUKE 13:10-13 "on the sabbath Jesus was teaching in the synagogue and a woman was there who had been crippled by a spirit for 18 years. she was bent over and could not straighten up at all. when Jesus saw her, He called her forward and said to her, 'woman, you are set free from your infirmity.' then He put His hands on her, and immediately she straightened up and praised God."
LUKE 18:16 "Jesus called the children to Him and said, 'let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. i tell you the truth, anyone who will not recieve the kingdom of God like a little child shall never enter it.'"
