Twenty-One Promises for Difficult Times

This is the day that the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it! I hope you will as well. I know there are several who will read today's blog that are facing difficult times. I would like to share some promises from God's Word for you. As you go through these promises, why don't you put your name in the promise and spend a few moments praying God's Word.

Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword… In all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.
