- Isaiah 10:15 : The axe is useless without the woodsman. Without God, we are useless, and ought to remember ourselves as His tools

- Isaiah 12:1-6 Here's something we should be doing more of! Trust, not be afraid.
- Isaiah 8:11-12 Don't get all freaked out and search for conspiracies. Even if they are everywhere, God alone is your strength.
Proverbs 9:17 The fruit of our labor tastes better than stolen fruit--the work of our hands, the provision of our God should be our desire. Not to have the government take away someone else's fruit and give it to us.
1 Timothy 2:6 There was no accident in the timing of the first coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. As much as we might wonder, His plan was better than we imagine possible.
