When were you forgiven by God and Not by man
22 For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.
23 And not only they but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.
24 For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for? Romans 8:22-24

22 Then Jesus answering said unto them, Go your way, and tell John what things ye have seen and heard; how that the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, to the poor the gospel is preached. Luke 7:22 KJV
They that trust in man, not God are not wise;
3 Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help.
4 He will take his last breath, he returneth to the earth; in that very day, his thoughts perish. Psalm 146:3,4
Knowing this you can be confident
- Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified. Galatians 2:16
- Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draws back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him. Hebrews 10:38
