Luke 8:22-23 One day Jesus said to his disciples, Let's get in a boat and go across to the other side of the lake. So they set sail, and soon Jesus fell asleep. But a fierce wind arose and became a violent squall that threatened to swamp their boat. TPT

3 He will send from heaven and save me from the slanders and reproaches of him who would trample me down or swallow me up, and He will put him to shame. Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]! God will send forth His mercy and loving-kindness and His truth and faithfulness. AMP

1 COR 15:54-57 What was spoken in Isaiah is finally realized even in our physical death: Death is swallowed up in victory!
55 Oh death where is your sting? Oh grave, where is your victory?
56 The sting of death is sin; the strength of sin is the law. (It was sin that made death so frightening and law-code guilt that gave sin its leverage. The Message.)
57 Your victory is not a maybe; because of the magnanimous doing of Jesus Christ, it is a given! MIRROR
Isaiah 30:18 For this reason the Lord is still waiting to show his favor to you so he can show you his marvelous love. He waits to be gracious to you.

Overwhelmed with bliss are all who will entwine their hearts in him, waiting for him to help them. TPT

Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) are all those who [earnestly] wait for Him, who expect and look and long for Him [for His victory, His favor, His love, His peace, His joy, and His matchless, unbroken companionship]!

1 John 5:4 Every God-begotten person conquers the world's ways. The power that brings the world to its knees is our faith.
5 The person who wins out over the world's ways is simply the one who believes Jesus is the Son of God.
6 Jesus the Divine Christ! He experienced a life-giving birth and a death-killing death. Not only birth from the womb, but baptismal birth of his ministry and sacrificial death. And all the while the Spirit is confirming the truth, the reality of God's presence at Jesus' baptism and crucifixion, bringing those occasions alive for us. MSG
1 JN 5:4 Whatever is born of God is destined to triumph over the world system. Our faith celebrates a victory that is already accomplished!
5 This is the ultimate victory: the certainty that the human Jesus is the divine Son of God;
6 This is he who was to come; he arrived in the flesh via his mothers womb - by water and blood - Jesus Christ. And in his ministry as the Christ, he was not only borne witness to by John the Baptist in the prophetic baptism of water, but he went all the way into his baptism of death, in his shed blood, where he died mankinds death. And it is the Spirit that bears witness according to her own being, which is truth! MIRROR
Rom 8:37 None of this fazes us because Jesus loves us.
38 I'm absolutely convinced that nothing nothing living or dead, angelic or demonic, today or tomorrow,
39 high or low, thinkable or unthinkable absolutely nothing can get between us and God's love because of the way that Jesus our Master has embraced us. MSG
Romans 8:37 Yet even in the midst of all these things, we triumph over them all, for God has made us to be more than conquerors, and his demonstrated love is our glorious victory over everything!
38So now I live with the confidence that there is nothing in the universe with the power to separate us from God's love. I'm convinced that his love will triumph over death, life's troubles, fallen angels, or dark rulers in the heavens. There is nothing in our present or future circumstances that can weaken his love.
39There is no power above us or beneath usno power that could ever be found in the universe that can distance us from God's passionate love, which is lavished upon us through our Lord Jesus, the Anointed One! TPT
