The Bible is a book that tells the story of God’s relationship with us. It is filled with stories, poems, songs, and letters showing how God created us and the world we live in with the sole purpose of establishing a connection with his beloved people. However, our perception of God may not always be accurate. To help us keep our hearts and minds focused on who God truly is, we can revisit key passages that remind us that God protects us, shows us mercy, empowers us, and cares about us.
