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 assure Christians of God’s present support and ultimate triumph.
The LORD is my strength and my shield.
My heart trusted him, so I received help.
My heart is triumphant; I give thanks to him with my song.
Then my enemies will retreat when I call to you.
This I know: God is on my side.
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.
Blessed is the person who trusts the LORD.
The LORD will be his confidence.
We know that all things work together for the good of those who love God—those whom he has called according to his plan.
When this body that decays is changed into a body that cannot decay, and this mortal body is changed into a body that will live forever, then the teaching of Scripture will come true:
“Death is turned into victory!
Death, where is your victory?
Death, where is your sting?”
Sin gives death its sting, and God’s standards give sin its power. Thank God that he gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
1 Corinthians 15:54-57
