As the Holy Bible is the book that I practically read every day (for twenty years now) I have a lot of Bible verses that encourage me in difficult times when I get discouraged or start having doubts regarding certain things that Bible is very clear about. I do reread those verses again and again and they never lose meaning for me. There are a lot of them and I would have to write dozens of articles to mention all of them. Let me give you just three verses this time.
The first is from Hebrews 13:5-6:”Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” So we say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?” We sometimes feel lonely and forsaken by God. But it is not true. We cannot trust our feelings. They are very changeable and they contradict to what the Bible says. He promised to stay with us forever. Humans cannot do anything bad to you if God does not permit that to happen.
The second verse is from 1 John 1:9:”If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.” All of us sin. Some sin more, some less. Everybody needs God’s forgiveness though. The best part is that God forgives any sin that we commit if we confess it and repent. He not only forgives, but also cleanses us from all unrighteousness. So, if you feel unclean because of you badly sinned, remember that there is no sin too great for God to forgive. Praise God!
The last verse is from Psalm 23:1:”The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.” I can say that the entire 23 Psalm is wonderful. However, if I think that I lack something I like to remember the verse. God is my provider. He helps me to live from day to day giving me ideas how to make money and support my family. He is my good shepherd. A good shepherd does not leave his sheep in trouble. He will not do it with me. He will not do it with you. He will guide us, protect us and provide for us.
