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 four passages encourage followers of Christ that he is still by their side when they feel alone.
“Be strong and courageous. Don’t tremble! Don’t be afraid of them! The LORD your God is the one who is going with you. He won’t abandon you or leave you.”
You make the path of life known to me.
Complete joy is in your presence.
Pleasures are by your side forever.
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.
Even if my father and mother abandon me,
the LORD will take care of me.
The LORD is near to those whose hearts are humble.
He saves those whose spirits are crushed.
The God who is in his holy dwelling place
is the father of the fatherless and the defender of widows.
God places lonely people in families.
He leads prisoners out of prison into productive lives,
but rebellious people must live in an unproductive land.
