Facing the Giant of Work and Unemployment

Losing a job or dealing with work-related stress is something that many of us deal with at some point in life. But God doesn’t want you to have anxiety at work. He cares about your day-to-day, and He wants you to flourish in the work you do!

Facing the giant of Lockdown

Lockdown is bringing new challenges to every person. Home schooling. Weddings cancelled. Businesses shut. But through it all, we can find peace in knowing that God has not forgotten us. His Word stands firm. Facing the Giant of Lockdown is a reading plan to help you find peace in God when everything else feels uncertain.

Why We Need God’s Word

God’s Word is more powerful than our circumstances. By reading the Bible, we discover the faithfulness of God to overcome danger, pain, sin, and even death. We need tools to get into God’s Word so that when trouble comes, we know where to turn. Taken from the UCB Word For You devotionals, this Bible series will remind you to stand on God’s Word no matter what life brings.

 

 

Choosing Faith Over Fear

In these uncertain times, it’s pretty natural to feel a sense of fear. The Bible says ‘fear not’, but that’s easier said than done, right? Unless… we stand on the encouraging promises of God’s Word. Follow along on YouVersion with this free seven-day devotional based on writings from the UCB Word For Today, and see how God encourages us to choose faith over fear.

 

 

Facing the Giant of Money

Whatever our financial situation, we can all struggle with how best to use our money. But thankfully, God offers us wisdom in His Word, and He can help us manage our money in ways that honour Him.

Facing the Giant of Grief and Loss

Any grieving process is painful. But if you are facing the loss of a loved one, the Bible says God is ‘near to the broken-hearted’ (Psalm 34:18 ESVUK), and He is able to carry you through the process of grieving.

Facing the Giant of Addiction

When we’re held in the grip of addiction, it can be difficult to see a way out. But with God’s help and strength, we can break out of the chains of addiction and find new freedom with Him.

When you're doubting and afraid...

Doubt and fear are part of human nature: even the greatest characters in the Bible questioned God’s love, power, and provision. Yet in His patience, God’s Scriptures have shown us that He is stronger than our doubt and greater than our fear. Taken from the Word For You devotional by UCB, this series will take you through several Bible verses that remind us how to strengthen our faith amidst uncertainty.

 

 

When You're Discouraged...

What do you do when you’re feeling discouraged? It’s so easy to lose hope, but this free daily devotional provides encouraging Bible verses and reflections, reminding us to stand on God’s promises in overwhelming times. Join us through seven days of inspiring devotionals from the UCB Word For Today to help shift your perspective and deal with discouragement.

 

 

When it hurts...

Compiled from the Word For You – UCB's daily devotional for young adults – this 10-day reading plan takes you through challenging and comforting reflections on God's Word to help you get through times when life hurts.

The UCB Word For Today is written by Bob and Debby Gass. Bob passed away in 2019, but before he was ‘promoted to glory’ (as Bob would have said), he began a long writing project which would mean this devotional could continue long after he was gone. Thanks to this planned provision, we believe that Bob’s legacy will ensure that the UCB Word For Today will reach even more people in the years to come than it has over the last 25 years.
