God’s life-changing word overflows with his promises of real love, forgiveness, salvation, peace, hope, and joy for everyone who trusts in his Son, Jesus.
These six passages encourage Christians to be confident in God’s enduring presence and strength.
“I have commanded you, ‘Be strong and courageous! Don’t tremble or be terrified, because the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.’ ”
Even though I walk through the dark valley of death,
because you are with me, I fear no harm.
Your rod and your staff give me courage.
Do not be afraid of sudden terror
or of the destruction of wicked people when it comes.
The LORD will be your confidence.
He will keep your foot from getting caught.
Don’t be afraid, because I am with you.
Don’t be intimidated; I am your God.
I will strengthen you.
I will help you.
I will support you with my victorious right hand.
On that day Jerusalem will be told,
“Do not be afraid, Zion!
Do not lose courage!”
The LORD your God is with you.
He is a hero who saves you.
He happily rejoices over you,
renews you with his love,
and celebrates over you with shouts of joy.”
