You may have some really good friends, but there is only one perfect friend – God! He’s always with you, even in the tough times (Psalm 23:3). He’s always ready to listen (Psalm 145:18). And He’s always willing to help (Psalm 46:1). And the best part is that anyone can be close to Him. James…
God is always with His people. Look up Zephaniah 3:17 and think about the answers to these questions: Where is God? Is He strong or weak? Will He save you? And because He loves you so much, what will He do?
Idols are things people worship instead of God. It’s easy to look at a statue and think it’s silly to worship such things. But look at Matthew 4:8-10. Satan tempted Jesus with riches and power. Those are still pretty tempting to idols today. What was Jesus’ answer in verse 10? That’s exactly what your answer…
When Jesus died on the cross, He opened the throne room of heaven to us. That means you can step right into the presence of God – anytime, anywhere. And you can talk to Him about anything. Just take a look at Hebrews 4:16. God wants to hear from you!
Because we all sin, we all owe a debt to God. It’s a debt so huge that we can never pay it on our own. That’s why God sent Jesus – to pay that debt for us. Read Colossians 1:14 and 1 Peter 1:18-19. How did Jesus redeem us?
God knows you will make mistakes. That’s why He sent Jesus, the only perfect person. Check out Romans 5:8 and Luke 19:10. It’s never too late to ask God for a second chance.
Read 2 Timothy 1:7. Did God create you to be afraid? No! But that doesn’t mean you’ll never be afraid. It does mean you don’t have to let fear stop you from serving God. Remember that He’ll always be there to help you be strong and brave (Isaiah 41:10).
God won’t ever ask you to be brave all alone. Just look at the promise of Joshua 1:9. And then check out Philippians 4:13. God will give you the strength to do whatever He asks you to do. Yes, being brave can be scary, but who always wins in the end? Find the answer in…
Rahab was saved because she believed God was Lord over all – not because of anything she did. Look up Ephesians 2:8. How are you saved? Remember, there’s nothing you can do that will make God love you more or less.
