These scriptures have helped me through many tough times. I just wanted to share them.

2 Timothy 1:7 (NKJV)

For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.

Isaiah 53:5 (NKJV)

But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed.

I have learned throughout the years that you need to claim these scriptures out loud in order to receive the benefits from them.

The Lord put it on my heart that his word is like a hammer. You can research what the hammer is all day long (reading the word), but if you don't swing the hammer, the desk will never get built (claiming the word). You have to claim the word of the Lord to let the thing manifest. The Lord has already given it to you if it is in line with his word, and it is your job to make it manifest.
