    My favourite is this Psalms Chap. 27 verse 1 "The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?" that is so very True if you PRAY and READ your Bible each and everyday and you have that Divine Faith and Assurance than no one and nothing can stop or hinder GOD'S Divine Pathway for each and every Creature in the UNIVERSE. Amen.
