Over the last year, Justin Bieber has become increasingly more open about his mental health struggles, and the fact that he is an imperfect human who needs a saving grace.
With each message, he posts about what he is going through, a message of unconditional love, and forgiveness comes with it.
In his latest Instagram post, Bieber encouraged his 111 million followers to look to Jesus for all things in life. Whether that be mental health struggles, problems at home, or relational problems, Bieber pointed his followers to Christ.
“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!” the famous singer wrote.
“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,” he admitted.
The pop singer explained that although he is going through a season of difficulty, he knows where his freedom, his love and his salvation comes from.
“Jesus has given me freedom and the pursuit of getting to know his character is never ending,” Bieber explained. “Gods character never changes he is the same yesterday now and forever. He is always good!”
He went on to explain that he isn’t afraid of being vulnerable before God, and voicing his struggles, because “God isn’t afraid of your pain and your brokenness he actually welcomes it.”
He recited Matthew 11:28: “Come to me all who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest!
“These are words from Jesus!” he exclaimed. “There is hope and it’s in him!!
The 25-year-old, who is married to Hailey Baldwin, continued to emphasize the love that God has for each and every one of His children.
“He loves and cares for you! For God so loved the world that He gave his only son so that whoever believes him won't die but have eternal life!” he wrote, summarizing John 3:16.
“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!”
Bieber has been increasingly more open about his mental health struggles over the past year. Back in March, the 25-year-old shared a similar update where he called his current place in life “the most human season I’ve ever been in,” while asking his fans for prayer.
Bieber shared a story to his Instagram on Thursday as well, in which he wrote: “I’m getting there one day at a time. If you’re going through it, don’t give up.”
