Sometimes, when things aren’t going well, we just need to remember where to turn. One book has it all. If you need a little encouragement, you will find plenty of it within the pages of God’s Word. Here’s a list of encouraging verses that I have turned to often:
I have set the LORD always before me. Because he is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.
God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging. “Selah”
Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous fall.
The LORD is my strength and my song; he has become my salvation. Shouts of joy and victory resound in the tents of the righteous: “The LORD’s right hand has done mighty things! The LORD’s right hand is lifted high; the LORD’s right hand has done mighty things!”
You are my refuge and my shield; I have put my hope in your word. Away from me, you evildoers, that I may keep the commands of my God!
I am laid low in the dust; preserve my life according to your word. My comfort in my suffering is this: Your promise preserves my life.
It was good for me to be afflicted so that I might learn your decrees.
I call on the LORD in my distress, and he answers me.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.
The name of the LORD is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe.
You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you.
So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
2 Timothy 1:7
For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.
1 Peter 5:7
Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
Blessings on your day.
