The Bible teaches us that our everyday combat as Christians is one of faith. You have to admit, having faith in God during difficult times is not always easy. There are so many reasons to feel defeated sometimes: suffering through an illness, facing a professional failure, having problems at home… It can be enough to make you feel lost, abandoned, and scared. However, believing and turning to God can help you face all your fears. Jesus told Jairus, whose daughter had just passed, to “just believe” (Mark 5: 36). A few moments later, Jesus raised her from the dead. We know well that everything is possible to God, but do not forget that nothing is impossible to those who believe. The Word of God reminds us firmly that the Lord can help us. Let’s discover 4 beautiful promises of God with these Bible verses: it will remind you to persevere and rely on Him!
“Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for him.” (Lamentations 3:22-24)
“If we endure, we will also reign with him. If we disown him, he will also disown us; if we are faithless, he remains faithful, for he cannot disown himself.” (2 Thimothy 12-13)
“Indeed, we felt we had received the sentence of death. But this happened that we might not rely on ourselves but on God, who raises the dead. He has delivered us from such a deadly peril, and he will deliver us again.“ (2 Corinthians 1:9)
“In all this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that the proven genuineness of your faith—of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire—may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed.” (1 Peter 6:7)
