John 10:10 NIV  //  The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.

Romans 8:31 NIV  //  …If God is for us, who can be against us?

  • In the midst of four kinds of difficult experiences, God declares He is for you.
  1. In the midst of our FEARS…God is our SHEPHERD!

Psalms 23:1-4 NIV  //  The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name sake. Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.

  1. In the midst of our FAILURES…God is our ADVOCATE!

1 John 2:1-2 NIV  //  My dear children, I write this to you so that you will not sin. But if anybody does sin, we have an advocate with the Father-Jesus Christ, the Righteous One. He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world.

  1. In the midst of our STRUGGLES…God is our DELIVERER!

Psalm 56:9 NIV  //  Then my enemies will turn back when I call for help. By this I will know that God is for me.

Psalm 56:13 NIV  //  For you have delivered me from death and my feet from stumbling, that I may walk before God in the light of life.

  1. In the midst of our WORRIES…God is NEAR!

Matthew 6:25-27 NIV  //  Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?

Philippians 4:5-7 NIV  //  …The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanks giving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
