The NLT Bible Promise Book For Tough Times (Paperback)Ronald A Beers
It may surprise you to hear that the Bible promises trouble. As long as we live in a sinful world, tough times will be part of our human experience. Along with the promise that troubles will come, the Bible also promises that there is present help and future hope as we live with pain and adversity. With every trouble there is potential triumph. In every pain we find the very power of God to combat it. In all our suffering we find salvation, both in this life and the next. The NLT Bible Promise Book for Tough Times contains hundreds of promises from Scripture. The book focuses on life-related topics such as suffering, doubt, spiritual warfare, trusting God, worry, and much more.

The NLT Bible Promise Book for Tough TimesAbandonment
When you feel as if God has left you . . .
Those who know your name trust in you, for you, O Lord,
do not abandon those who search for you.
When you’ve been harmed . . .
We are hunted down, but never abandoned by God. We get
knocked down, but we are not destroyed.
2 Corinthians 4:9
When you wonder if God understands your pain . . .
It was our weaknesses he carried; it was our sorrows that
weighed him down. And we thought his troubles were a
punishment from God, a punishment for his own sins! But
he was pierced for our rebellion, crushed for our sins. He was

When healing seems impossible . . .
He heals the brokenhearted and bandages their wounds.
For you who fear my name, the Sun of Righteousness will rise
with healing in his wings. And you will go free, leaping with
joy like calves let out to pasture.
A vast crowd brought to him people who were lame, blind,
crippled, those who couldn’t speak, and many others. They
laid them before Jesus, and he healed them all.
When you’ve been falsely accused . . .
Be careful to live properly among your unbelieving neighbors.

your honorable behavior, and they will give honor to God
when he judges the world.
1 Peter 2:12
Even if you suffer for doing what is right, God will reward
you for it. So don’t worry or be afraid of their threats.
1 Peter 3:14
Keep your conscience clear. Then if people speak against you,

because you belong to Christ.
1 Peter 3:16
When you’ve jumped to false conclusions about someone else . . .
Don’t make judgments about anyone ahead of time—before
the Lord returns. For he will bring our darkest secrets to light
and will reveal our private motives. Then God will give to
each one whatever praise is due.
1 Corinthians 4:5
Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone
who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you
must forgive others.
