No one is hopeless whose hope is in God.

Affliction for God's people can be the pruning knife to prepare us for greater fruitfulness.

Is God using pain in your life to lovingly persuade you to change? The season of trouble may not be easy, but if we let ourselves be trained by it, new growth will result as we become more like His Son.

Joy comes from the Lord who lives in us, not from what's happening around us.

Righteousness in the heart produces beauty in the character.

Like a compass, the Bible always points you in the right direction.

Many of us struggle with our thoughts of God, especially during illness. Can we trust Him? We turn to the Gospels for our reason to trust God. And we find it in His Son Jesus, who was unfailingly compassioate toward those who were afflicted, regardless of the reason. So we pray, "Deliver us from the belief that by our sin we have forfeited God's goodness and mercy." The Great Physician knows our natural infirmities, and knows the weight of our sins, for He paid a dear price for them.

The cross of Jesus is the supreme evidence of the love of God.

If we could earn our salvation, Christ would not have died to provide it.
