VerseD: Jeremiah 29:13

You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart.
Jeremiah 29:13, ESV

Do not think that because you sin or life gets hard (and even impossible) that God has abandoned you.

Instead, look for how God is moving in your life, to discipline you – allowing the effects of sin to play out or to help you grow stronger in faith.

He is always with you, Christian.

VerseD: Nahum 1:7

The Lord is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble; he knows those who take refuge in him.
Nahum 1:7, ESV

Trust in God. When times are bad, He knows your need and holds you.

But trust Him in good times, too. Those are times to draw near in comfort and get to know Him.

VerseD: Ephesians 2:8-9

For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.
Ephesians 2:8‭-‬9, ESV

Stop trying to earn your salvation. It is an undeserved gift given freely to those who believe in the saving work of Christ through the cross.

Just believe it.

(Then do good works out of love.)

VerseD: Romans 10:10

For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved.
Romans 10:10, ESV

We can know that Jesus is Lord, but unless we believe in our innermost being and are willing to tell others, we are not saved and justified.

Move past mere head knowledge. Even Satan knows Jesus is the Son of God …

VerseD: Hebrews 11:1

Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.
Hebrews 11:1, ESV

We do not have a blind faith. We have the historical, prophetic, and biblical evidence, with the ultimate proof of our faith being the real and physical death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

VerseD: 2 Corinthians 5:7

for we walk by faith, not by sight.
2 Corinthians 5:7 ESV

With all that we see is wrong in this world, it can be easy to lose hope.

But we walk in the faith that Christ has promised to return and take us to be with Him forever.

VerseD: 1 Timothy 2:5-6

For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all, which is the testimony given at the proper time.
1 Timothy 2:5‭-‬6, ESV

Jesus came at the right time in history to show us our need for God and His forgiveness, and He sacrificed Himself to bring that forgiveness. If we believe, we are saved from God’s judgment.
