Psalm 46 (NIV) 

Jeremiah 34:31-34 (NIV)

Romans 3:19-28 (NIV)

John 8:31-36 (NIV) 

In troubling times or any time we are instructed and encouraged to have faith in God.  God is still our refuge and strength even when the world seems dark and foreboding.

God has given us the new covenant (written about in Jeremiah 34) through our relationship to Jesus Christ; it’s all through faith.  Paul writes about it, “The righteousness is given through faith in Christ to all who believe…”

God makes himself known to us most fully in Jesus. When we hold onto Jesus’ teaching, presence, and direction and allow the Savior to lead us we will “know the truth and the truth will set us free.”

Review the key verses from todays four passages and allow the Holy Spirit to strengthen and renew your faith today.  The future is secure in Christ Jesus for all who believe.  God is remains faithful and invites us to put our faith and trust in him.

(Psalm 46:1-3) 1 God is our refuge and strength,
an ever-present help in trouble.
2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way
and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
3 though its waters roar and foam
and the mountains quake with their surging.

Jeremiah 34:33 “This is the covenant I will make with the people of Israel after that time,” declares the Lord.  “I will put my law in their minds
and write it on their hearts.  I will be their God, and they will be my people.”

(Romans 3:22) This righteousness is given through faith in Christ to all who believe. There is no difference between Jew and Gentile, 23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24 and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.

(John 8:31-32) Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. 32 Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
