God has a plan for your life
When you walk in His plan then the things He promises are rightfully yours as a child of God
2 Corinthians 1:20 In Christ all the promises of God in Him are "Yes," and in Him "Amen". (Amen means "So be it")
7,487 promises in the Bible
No matter your problem there's a promise that God will be there and help you
