"Lift up your eyes and look 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. Why do you say, O Jacob, and complain, O Israel, 'My way is hidden from the LORD; my cause is disregarded by my God'? Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength, They will soar on wings like eagles; They will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. ... So do not fear, for I am with you. Do not be dismayed for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. All who rage against you will surely be ashamed and disgraced: those who oppose you will be as nothing and perish. Though you look for your enemies, you will not find them. Those who wage war against you will be as nothing at all. For I am the LORD your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you. DO NOT FEAR: I WILL HELP YOU!" (Isaiah 40:26-31, 41:10-13)
