When we are in right relationship with God, we do not fear the things the world fears. We are not afraid no matter what we see going on around us, no matter what appears to be happening to us, no matter what kinds of threats are being thrown at us. God will have his way, and we are in his hands. We focus on God, we turn our hearts toward God, we worship God, we walk in obedience and faith and love, knowing that his grace covers us.
If we live, we live for the glory of God. If we die, we die for the glory of God. We exist for God’s glory. He will see us through all of life’s storms and trials and troubles. He will be our guide all the way into eternity. We trust God because we know he loves us and his mercy endures forever. God is gracious and compassionate. He demonstrated his great love for us by sending his only begotten Son, Jesus, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have everlasting life.
If we confess our sins, God is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. Through faith in Jesus, we are given right standing with God. Glory be to God.
