“Take courage! Do not be afraid. You have a little faith, so why do you doubt? Do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink. Do not worry about your body, what you will wear. Your life is much more than food and clothes. Do not worry about shelter and provision. Are not sparrows fed by my Father and cubs sheltered in dens?
“According to your faith in me, what you ask will be done for you. To those who have great faith in me, your requests are granted. I say to you: if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to your mountain of problems, ‘Move from here to there,’ and they will move. Nothing will be impossible for those who have faith in me. When others bring discouragement, I bring courage. When others bring doubts, I give faith and hope. Do not be afraid; simply believe in me. I am the one who rebukes the wind and the waves. I bring calm to chaos. I catch you when you fall, so today put your trust in me!”— Jesus (Mark 5:1-20)
