Justin Bieber has a moving message of encouragement for his fandom.
On Thursday, the 25-year-old pop star shared a simple black-and-white selfie on Instagram, which he captioned with a long post offering encouragement to individuals living in doubt.
"Don't stop fighting the battle has already won," he wrote. "Fight for what you love and who you love don't let fear and anxiety win. God has not given us a spirit of fear but of power, love and of a sound mind! I haven't believed the truth about myself. I haven't believed I am loved. I haven't believed I am forgiven. It's a hard thing for me to wrap my head around."
"I hang my head in shame and I wallow in sadness about the people who have betrayed me," he continued, discussing his faith. "Jesus has given me freedom and the pursuit of getting to know his character is never ending. Gods character never changes. He is the same yesterday, now and forever. He is always good! I won't be afraid to be vulnerable before him. His power is made strong in our weakness. God isn't afraid of your pain and your brokenness, he actually welcomes it. Come to me all who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest! These are words from Jesus! There is hope and it's in him!"
"He loves and cares for you!" he concluded. "For God so loved the world that he gave his only son so that whoever believes him won't die but have eternal life! You are that whoever and he accepts you as you are!! He loves and forgives you and welcomes you into his arms every time you mess He is a perfect and loving god who adores you!"
Then, in March, the hitmaker posted a photo of himself, his manager, Scooter Braun, and Kanye West all praying, which he captioned with a request for prayers.
"Just wanted to keep you guys updated a little bit hopefully what I'm going through will resonate with you guys," Bieber wrote. "Been struggling a lot. Just feeling super disconnected and weird."
"I always bounce back so I'm not worried just wanted to reach out and ask for [you] guys to pray for me," he added. "God is faithful and [your] prayers really work thanks … the most human season I've ever been in facing my stuff head on."
