They were all terrified when they saw him. But Jesus spoke to them at once. “Don’t be afraid,” he said. “Take courage! I am here! 51 Then he climbed into the boat, and the wind stopped. They were totally amazed, 52 for they still didn’t understand the significance of the miracle of the loaves. Their hearts were too hard to take it in. 53 After they had crossed the lake, they landed at Gennesaret. They brought the boat to shore 54 and climbed out. The people recognized Jesus at once, 55 and they ran throughout the whole area, carrying sick people on mats to wherever they heard he was. 56 Wherever he went—in villages, cities, or the countryside—they brought the sick out to the marketplaces. They begged him to let the sick touch at least the fringe of his robe, and all who touched him were healed.
22 Now listen to me. Don’t be depressed, for no one will perish—only the ship will be lost. 23 For God’s angel visited me last night, the angel of my God, the God I passionately serve. He came and stood in front of me 24 and said, ‘Don’t be afraid, Paul. You are destined to stand trial before Caesar. And because of God’s favor on you, he has given you the lives of everyone who is sailing with you.’ 25 So men, keep up your courage! I know that God will protect you, just as he told me he would. 26 But we must run aground on some island to be saved.”
22 I spoke hastily when I said, “The Lord has deserted me.” For in truth, you did hear my prayer and came to rescue me.
23 Listen to me, all you godly ones: Love the Lord with passion! The Lord protects and preserves all those who are loyal to him. But he pays back in full all those who reject him in their pride.
24 So cheer up! Take courage all you who love him. Wait for him to break through for you, all who trust in him!
Matthew 14:27 NLT

You, too, must be patient. Take courage, for the coming of the Lord is near.
9 One night, the Lord spoke to Paul in a supernatural vision and said, “Don’t ever be afraid. Speak the words that I give you and don’t be intimidated, 10 because I am with you. No one will be able to hurt you, for there are many in this city whom I call my own.”
Psalms 27:14 TPT
