The ultimate source of all encouragement is the fact that God is love, and He loves us and has a perfect plan for us. Read these verses about God’s love.
“As a father pities his children, so the LORD pities those who fear Him. For He knows our frame; He remembers that we are dust.”
“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.”
“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?”
“Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
“Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.”
“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”
