Read Romans 10:5-9 (

Today it can be so hard to trust things – tv adverts, politicians and even what people say. Promises get made and broken without a second thought. However with God this is different, He is faithful to His promises. Verse 9 tells us that if we confess with our mouth and believe in our heart that Jesus is Lord we will be saved.

Knowing that Jesus is Lord can be hard, but we must remember it and trust Him in the toughest situations. Real faith is trusting God when it is the hardest. How will you trust that Jesus is Lord in 2019?



Read Romans 10:2-4 (

We live in a world where everybody wants to call the shots, be the boss and have the money. When it comes to our faith it does not work that way.

In verses 2-4 we see the Jewish people wanting to follow God but they do not know God’s way to follow God, instead, they do it their own way. We are reminded that Jesus ended the law and that we are only made right when we believe in Him. This is God’s term for salvation.

This is Good News! For 2019 how can you live knowing this Good News and sharing it with others?



Read Proverbs3:5 (

Sometimes we hear scriptures so often that we become familiar to the point of not recognising its meaning anymore. Let’s stop and read the Word mindfully. This scripture is quite popular and for good reason: it’s saying, trust God wholly and completely, don’t depend on your own understanding of the situation, etc.

Whatever is happening in your life, you can trust God that He is working out things for your good and He can go beyond how we perceive things to be.

What do you need to trust God with today?



Are you going through a difficult time?
Are you hurting?
Do you feel like you are not going to get through something?

Take comfort and encouragement in these words:
“This too shall pass.”
“You can do it!”
“God is with you.”
“You’re stronger than you think”

Hold fast!
Press on!
Hear and see Jesus is with you.

One last thing – hold onto this truth:
“Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to Him, and He will make your paths straight.” Proverbs 3:5-6 (
