“Behold, I make all things new,” (Revelation 21:5) God promises. And He delivers.
Every 24 hours, He blesses us with a new day full of possibilities. Every moment, He offers us new life (Romans 6:4; 2 Corinthians 5:17) here on this earth, while promising us a glorious eternity with Him.
God’s love for us is immeasurable. That’s why He has made so many divine promises — blessings for a multitude of life’s beginnings. Claim them in faith, with the assurance that He has your best interests at heart.

No, in all these things, we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.

A promise for a new trial: Jesus is interceding with God on my behalf
