Faith in God is our means to overcoming every trial and temptation that we are faced with in our humanity.

When we turn away from temptation and turn to Him with absolute confidence, we will be victorious through Him. He is faithful, and promises to protect and strengthen us. He is our anchor and absolute hope.

He is our living God of unlimited power and resources. He knows all about yesterday, today and tomorrow. He knows exactly how much we can bear, and He alone holds the solution to every conceivable problem.

Hold resolutely to your hope in Him...and see the promises over your life fulfilled, according to His will for you in Christ.

He Will Never Reject You


Have you ever felt rejected, abandoned and unloved? Jesus will never leave you.

He is incapable of suddenly deciding that He doesn't want you. Nothing you can do will cause Him to reject you. Believe what God's word says about Him and about you.

You are defined by the love and acceptance of the One who formed your inward parts - the Creator and Sustainer of the universe. He thinks you are worth loving, cherishing and keeping.

Find your identity in Him. Apply His love to your wounded heart and let His word renew your mind and penetrate deep in your heart.
