Life involves hardship, and with hardship come worries, fears, and doubts.

Jesus told His followers, “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world” (John 16:33).  Jesus also reminded us of God’s love and care (Matthew 6:25–33).

Jesus is the reason we are not alone. Jesus is the answer to our fears and heartaches. He can sympathize with us because He has lived a human life in this broken world (Hebrews 4:15–16). Jesus gives us peace and equips us to endure, and even rejoice in, the hardships of this life (James 1:2–5).
