10 Encouraging Bible Verses (Inspiring & Uplifting Scriptures)

10 Encouraging Scriptures to Remind Us of God's Faithfulness...Everyone needs a bit of encouragement from time to time. Thankfully we have the Bible as our ultimate source of encouragement! Check out these 10 bible verses and be encouraged about how faithful our God is!Everyone needs a bit of encouragement from time to time. Thankfully we have the Bible as our ultimate source of encouragement!

Even in the midst of a financial crisis , we can remain hopeful and encouraged if we keep trusting in God.

I have found that the key is finding specific encouraging Bible verses and meditating on them. According to the Word, this is how faith comes.

The more we soak up the truth of God’s Word, the more assured we become that He really is going to take care of us!  So write down a few of these encouraging scriptures and keep your focus on them as they are the truth!

I know some people whose lives have been dramatically affected by a financial crisis and the important thing to remember in the midst of the chaos is that God is in control. He is not surprised by the events and He is not unsure how He is going to take care of his children. We are just as safe putting our trust in Him when things are going great as when it looks like everything is falling apart around us.

“And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus.” – Phil 4:19

Notice the above verse says “ALL.” It doesn’t say “some” or “most,” but it says that He will meet all of our needs. It doesn’t say how He will meet our needs and I have found from experience the way He does it is often not what I expected. But the bottom line is that God is faithful and He does what He promises.

    I can’t tell you how refreshing and encouraging this post is! There is so much negative news. Everywhere I look it is fear. People are afraid of their jobs, their investments. It’s fear fear fear.

    It’s so nice to read a post in the middle of all of this that reminds us that Jehovah is bigger than stock markets. He is the Ancient of Days. He will meet our needs.

    when we grasp this we can become the people that people look to for direction in this time of trouble.
    In the words of the christian hip hop group.
    “When there’s trouble you,
    don’t see them running to,
    their BMWs”

  2. bob

    I thought it was pretty refreshing myself – God is so much bigger than what is going on around us!

    on a side note, I loved that quote you gave… so true!

    • lacy davis

      i really needed this this morning,..i was arguing with hubby and felt so sad inside i was crying and our finaces are bad right now..please pray over our family

    • phoebe martin

      Hi Lacy, everyone of us is going through difficult times.
      I very much feel for you, since my relationship is kind of rocky, coupled with bad finances.. I feel very anxious about the future..
      But hey, God is good. I remember reading somewhere that the higher the barriers that we face, the bigger the rewards.. I’ll include you in my prayers. 🙂

  3. Ryan K from Going Carless

    For the record,
    I found the actual lyrics which are better than my paraphrase.

    all up and down the F.M. dial

    they make songs about takin’ the wrong route

    and yet men smile

    Yet when trials and tribulations appear

    “God this” and “God that” is all that you hear

    You don’t see them runnin’ to them BMWs “

    Thank you so much for your website and posting. I have Isiah 55:8-9 on the back of my business cards. Thanks so much. God Bless you!

    Also notice that He doesn’t say that cable television, plasma TVs and three cars per household are “needs.” We get a bit confused on that one here in the US.

    “But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that.” 1 Timothy 6:8

  6. barely getting by

    Okay, God is meeting my needs, but I cannot get ahead. (No money to go to school or start a business.)

    Is this any way to live?

    • E

      Unfortunately the Bible never promised that we would have a good life on earth… The Lord said that He would provide or NEEDS but He never said that He would make life easy if you trust in Him, infact he said that you would be persecuted. But my Mum always says to me, The Lord hires and fires, blesses and rewards, and holds you in the palm of His hands. He will never forsake you or leave you.

      Also there are verses in the Bible that mention that if you are a friend of the world than you are not (basically the words are probably wrong) a friend of God. We are meant to be set apart from the way of the world, it doesnt mean we are better than it, it simply means that we have come to realise that we can no longer live without the help of our God, and we recognise that He is our King and our Lord and our Saviour, and therefore try and follow His ways.

      Going through the molding stage in life is difficult, and sometimes it can leave you feeling like God is not helping you, but when you look back later in life, you realise that The Lord has been there with you through every step of the way, and you are better for it.

      Trials are not pleasant, but then again this life is not the life we are meant to enjoy. We are meant to count our blessings though and be thankful that the Lord blesses us so richly.

    • Gail

      Also, the trials are what bring us closer to trusting in God. Remember Jesus didn’t have a home or even a place to lay His head! Yet He is a King of kings and Lord of lords. And if we look at those around us, most of those in the “world” who are financially well off-how many truly love, are dependent on God and keep His commandments? Not very many, so when they die they will have an eternity of suffering. We need to remember that God is preparing a mansion in Heaven for those IN CHRIST, and we just need to get through this life as best we can, trusting and obeying God in everything remembering there is something so much bigger and better in store for us 🙂 God blesses us spiritually and takes care of our needs which means we don’t keep up with the Johnsons. We just need to focus on making it to Heaven-the eye on the goal.

    • Diane

      Gail – I love what you wrote!! Would you mind if I shared your comments with someone? Thanks!


    • Indiana

      Just remember – living for Him includes giving up your own desires and goals for His will. Explore other options as that may not be His plan for your life. What if He needs you elsewhere? Use your talents and gifts and those were his blessing to you. Pray and then pray some more! I was amazed what happened to my relationship with God when my husband taught me to tithe and not let money drive our decisions. It was a long hard lesson to learn! I learned to be responsible and live frugally and never been happier. I do have to get beat over the head sometimes so I don’t forget… 🙂

    • Hannah

      God will guide you through if you let him! Just remember the ABC’s of christ!
      A- Admit you are a sinner
      B- Believe he is your one and only
      C- confess your sins!

    • melissa

      Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus christ. I am really inspired by your message, I did not know about the ABC. Everyday with Lord is sweeter than the day before. As a new believer everyday I’m learning something new.
      Thank can and
      God Bless you HANNAH

      Amen! Jodi.

    • Vicky

      I have learned one super important thing, and I hope you will learn it too. When we think and talk about God, we are talking about:
      the Creator of the universe,
      the Almighty God, Whom we read about in the Old and New Testaments,
      the Lord of lords,
      the King of kings,
      the One Who died on the cross for you.
      We are to serve Him, not viceversa. He is not a genie in a lamp to please us; we are to please Him. If you would take a moment to bow down and ask Him to forgive you for your arrogance, like I did too for my own arrogance, He is ever so merciful, and He will forgive you and prosper you.

  7. Trent

    Those that are known by the Lord have a Mighty One of God as their Guard and Savior, even the Lord Jesus … yet, look and see with eyes open … these things are signposts for which we are commanded to look for and sound the alert and alarm … for the Day is at hand when that which is written in the scriptures of Truth will be done. What He has said, will surely come about and there are times for comfort, indeed, even as He comforts us from within during this storm. Yet there is also a time to blow the trumpet and sound the alarm … not another lullaby … but a blast from the horn.

    Wake up, I say.
    Draw near.

    Speak His name, and He is with you. Yahshua has come, and is here and is coming shortly to take all those that belong to Him and of which He sees Himself within them.

    Ripening for the harvest,

  8. mbhunter

    I used Philippians 4:19 in my latest post too.

  9. rose

    just read this and got encouragement from it. it seems these scriptures can help for many different situations.


  10. Reuben

    These scriptures are really so much encouraging. Jesus is the beginning and the end. Yes, people look at the created and so blame luck but we look at the creator for our needs who is stable in his promises. I am seeking a job in the midst of these financial crisis but I believe I shall not be touched by the situations or circumstances. And as a youth I am glad I am getting a revelation of Gods word as far as finance is concerned. I wanna be blessed to be a blessing. The God of the Bible says “My people are destroyed for a lack of understanding.” and “Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.” (Proverbs 4:7)
    Thanks for giving the amplified version of the bible. It really broadened my understanding. We are the sons of Jesus and by his precious blood even in the midst of the financial crises ..just as the death angel passed over the people in the old testament who were obedient to God by putting the blood on their door posts so also being obedient to these scriptures is being bonded to them and thus being saved from disastrous financial consequences. Halleluiah!!!

  11. Smilie

    I have never doubted that God is my everything, but some times when things are quite in my home, I wonder. The United States has gotten it’s self into quite a knot. I will not set back and judge other peoples decisions, that is not my job nor do I want to do that. Their judgement day is coming, and only one will make that decision. And what ever president we have in office , he will not make everyone happy. But my parents always told me, respect our alders, or leaders, and pray they make the right decision for us.
    yes, I would like things here at home a lot better, yes, my husbands job may not be here, tomorrow. Yes, I may loose my house, yes, it was a very troubling Christmas, but I will not lose my faith. Neither will my children, I do not preach to my children who’s fault this has been, what I will tell them is: Cast your burden on the Lord, (release the weight of it) and He will sustain you; He will never allow the (consistently) righteous to be moved,made to slip, fall or fail. Psalm 55:22
    Please do not judge anyone anymore, work on supporting each other, I think that is what God wants us to do.
    God Bless

      Do not worry about things you have no control over…..

    thank you for this site, it is so encouraging

  20. Soldier

    Who are we to question God?

    God is good all the time.
    All the time, God is good. 🙂
    Suffering, that is our own decision. We make our own decisions, yet we blame on God because our hearts are torn. We allow our heart to tear, we allow ourselves to fall. It is not that we love God, it is that he LOVED us. Loved us enough to take our place, our shame and our guilt. When life gets tough, God is opening your eyes, to trust him, to love him. We wont understand, but that’s where Faith comes in. It’s time to be fashioned by fire and come awake! God is calling you today, are you willing? Dont think ahead and dont think behind. Quiet yourself and hear his voice.

    All the glory be to God our Father, our Abba.
    Let his name be maginified continually.
    Let everything that hath breath praise his name.
    Bless is he who comes in the name of the Lord and who, is indeed the Lord.
    Thank you Father, for leading me to this page of beautiful verses…Thank you for reminding me yesterday that you are the Lord of Lords…King of Kings.
    And then making me wonder and search…and now prove that you were encouraging me. You were with me, you went before me and you met me down by the water. By the river, by the river the good Lord did pass me by.
    And you spoke to me in a calm soft voice, and the birds soared, the wind blew and the trees clapped as the water rippled in praise of your Holy Blessed Name.
    “You’re here, there’s nothing to fear, I’m safe in your arms…” ahhh God how deep is your love? Who can know the depth of it?
    Thank you for this beautiful post…may the Lord our God continue to work through you to do his Good Will.

    “Everyone needs a bit of encouragement from time to time”
    And when you are really down look at what you have to be grateful for. Take a trip to Walmat and see people who cannot walk, have few clothes or going up to the sample displays for their only meal. I know I was handing out samples for a while and I can tell you tha there are a lot of people who look forward to seeing the sample cart because they are hungry.
    God Bless.

  29. Rania

    Thank you so much for posting this.I was really feeling down and was asking God to just make me feel relaxed so I can focus on his word.Tears were in my eyes and I was really down…I have to say whatever I am suffering from now ( job and health situation) are all results of my behavior and its great to always know that even when I behave badly he loves me and takes care of me…Even though I have some problems but at the same time my life is just FULLLLLL of so many blessings…I think when a situation occurs and I make the wrong decision etc…the situation keeps repeating, if I dont listen to what I am supposed to do ( as I almost always do) and do what I want to do, I fail, and the situation just keeps happening over and over and it worsens and gets to the point where I cannot breath anymore, in many ways this is the only way I learn and he knows that that is why he allows it to happen, bec there a lesson I didn’t get yet…I am glad he is so patient with me …

    Thank you so much again for posting this

  32. Peace and Joy

    Greetings and Salutations in the name of the Lord, I get very encouraged when I see brothers and sisters encourage and edify one another as we ought to. Only blessings in the Lord can result from such actions. I have seen poverty in the world around me like some only have nightmares about. Poverty of the body but more importantly poverty of the spirit. I have seen many people so lost within themselves , that hundred bucks in front of them is rubbish. And others where that would feed them and their family of four for a month. But we as able bodied believers please let us admonish and share our glorious spiritual riches like we may a sandwhich with one who is hungry. Love our neighbor as we love ourselves. However that is for each of us in our community. Be a blessing but not just financially but spiritually. Just as Jesus said to the lame man lowered through the roof “go your sins are forgiven . . . Then healed Him just because He could . My friends money does not make the world go round, people who live for money will have their eyes opened in time. But the Lord himself who holds all things in His hands makes the World go round. I am sure glad and filled with Joy that if He be for m who could possibly stand against me! Whew ! Thanks God that Your Truth has set me free ! Because I am FREE INDEED ! Bless you all in the Everlasting and Glorious name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

    Since we are to testify to God’s goodness, I need to share this testimony regarding this verse – Phil 4:19. Last November my son came home from college and told me he needed money in order to pay the rest of his tuition for the winter semester. We didn’t have any money, but I told him not to worry about it. Well, I started worrying about it that night and woke up at about 4 a.m. thinking about it. All of the sudden I heard this loud voice in my head say “My God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory.” It was awesome, so I accepted it and stopped worrying. Two weeks later the Lord had not supplied the money and my son e-mailed me that he needed more money than he originally quoted me. I told him not to worry again, but that night, I cried out to the Lord and asked Him to supply what He promised. Do you know the next moring my mother called me and asked me what my bank account number was so she could deposit money my father and she wanted to give me in my account…and it was over double the amount of the tuition bill. God is faithful…..just be patient, ASK Him to help and have faith. Sometimes we forget to ask for help!

    Psalm 34:7 The angel of the LORD encamps
    around those who fear him, and delivers them.

    Proverbs 3:5 Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. 6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
    Proverbs 18:10 The name of the LORD is a strong tower;
    the righteous run to it and are safe.
    Psalm 37: 4 Delight yourself in the LORD,
    and he will give you the desires of your heart.

    30 The mouth of the righteous utters wisdom,
    and his tongue speaks justice.
    31 The law of his God is in his heart;
    his steps do not slip.

    thank you so much for the bible verses.

  36. Cee

    I am 32 yrs old who never embraced God, even though I grew up in a cristian family. Because of this I faced many trials and tribulations in my life, including jail and drug addiction for years. I am now a college student who is very happy in my life, although life on life’s term can still be difficult it is more rewarding now that I have let God in my life. Although some may not call me a cristian, regardless of my title of religion, I know there is a God who loves me and see’s me through. My grandfather died recently and the one verse that alwasy stood out to him was “I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith.” This def rings true for me as well. And everyday I read it to assure myself I can get through anything. Im thankful my God loves me and got me through my bad desisions.

  37. Evie

    All of these verses are so beautiful in a time like this. My huband and I were wondering where the next paycheck is going to come from (he doesn’t get paid much and I have been losing hours at work) and I’m continuosly reminded all I can DO is to lean on my Father for our needs. I am believing by faith He will provide everything we need for this journey in life! Amen!!

  43. At the foot of the cross

    Thank you for saying those things I have been trying to tell myself. Thank you for sharing your testimonies. With my grandfather dying- he’s not saved- my sister’s and grandmother’s surgeries and my family and the loss of my boyfriend and everything else, it has been difficult at times not to despair. Your encouragement, possibly in the fact it’s not advice but more like a warm hug from a friend, has been invaluable. Thank you and God bless you all.

  44. Jesus, my Lord

    In the pass few weeks, I saw every aspect of my life going down the drain. I couldn’t understand the reasons and the pain was sooooo great! One morning, being so tied, I fell on my knees and cried to the Lord to lift me up because I was unable to stand on my own two feet from lack of energy and hope. My mind was in such a state that a couldn’t trust myself in things that needed to be done. That day, with God’s mercy I understood where I went wrong.
    Being a Christian doesn’t mean that we are stamps proof protected from evil. But in times of trouble God’s promesse to his children that He would never give up on them. Being God’s children , we need to believe in His word and by faith, surrender ourself to Him. By doing so, He will carry our heavy burden on His shoulders so that our Sadness becomes HOPE and Peace of mind and that our broken heart renew itself with love. Being the greatest Father, He will guide us to the right path that he has for prepared, in advance, for us so that we can find our way back to him.
    Faith and trust in God are the keys ( solution) to a more understanding life. No matter the situation we are in, God will never abandon His children. As children we need to fix our eye to the Lord, stand still and know that He is God because .
    God knows his children REAL needs and He is fully capable in giving it to them. We must remember that God is the one that chooses his children and not the other way around. Jesus said to his disciples: “You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide.” John 15:16
    “For he chose us in him before the creation of the world
    to be holy and blameless in his sight…” Ephesians 1:4

    Hello all,

    I was just wondering if anybody had a bible verse along the lines of “its going to get worse before it gets better.” or encouraging words that things will gradually get better?

    Thank you!!

  48. Another

    “As for God, His Way is Perfect” II Sam.22:31

    @ Annie
    Remember he didn’t promise it’d be easy he promised it’d be worth it!

    Proverbs 3:5,6 i believe says ” Trust in the lord with all your heart and lead not to your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him and he will direct your path.

    Romans 8:28 “We are assured and know that (God being a partner in their labor), all things work together and are (fitting into a plan) for good to and for those who love God and are called according to (His) design and purpose.

    His words are truly inspiring, even i have suffered the toughest times of my life. The only thing that saved me was his words through the Bible.

  51. Vera Talla

    It was nice reading those bible verses.They really cheered me up cus
    I was feeling terrible.I lost some scratch cards in my office where only us two work.But I feel better knowing God is in control and sees the hearts of men.
    Thanks a million.

  52. Josh

    Thanks for these great encouragment scriptures! One of my favorites is:

    2 Corinthians 4:8-9
    we are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not despairing; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed;

  53. Peyton Brooks

    I believe that we should all have the strength to go unto others with the Bible as our shield of defense. Don’t let anyone discourage or make you feel bad for worshiping God. He is the one who giveth you life and can take it away. Live for God, with your every breath, step, and thought. He is the only way of truth and perfection. In his eyes, nothing but a pure heart is beautiful. Love him and never stop loving him for he hath given his only son for your life! 🙂

    Hi, does anyone know a bible verse that would go along with this….I heard a preacher preach one time about… WHO MOVED… meaning, if you dont feel close to God, then who moved, God didn’t…… I am looking for a verse to back this up….

  55. Antwain

    Thank You God for your grace and mercy for i am not a perfect man. Thank you for sending your son Jesus to die for my sins. My car was repo yesterday because i don’t have a job . I’m very sad but God thank you. I may not have a car or a job but I have faith.

    Jesus said: Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in ALL circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

  56. Jacob

    Amen Brother! these verses were very encouraging to me! A great pick me up for today! thanks again!

  57. Samuel

    We give you all we are for the Glory of your name. Remember FAITH, LOVE & JOY. GOD will never let you down so don’t let him down! Pray continuously and sincerely and GOD will hear your prayer! Thank you for giving us a chance.

    For those of you who have lost your jobs. Please keep the faith. My husband and I had become very upset with our pastor of our last church so we quit going. A few weeks later my husband lost his job. He was the main bread winner and I worked a job that I hated daily because we had to pay the mortgage (on the house we had just purchased 8 months prior). Well for 9 months there was no hope about a job. The recruiters had stopped calling. We decided it was time to go back to church and pray for forgiveness and that we had lost our way. (We chose a different church as well). The very next day (Monday) he had 3 phone calls about interviews and another on that Tuesday. He ended up with a job from those calls. Its a better paying job and a company thats financially doing well. This was last November (2009). The kicker was we found that he actually got the job the day before Thanksgiving. So we have continued in our walk with Christ. Never doubting him and thanking him daily. Not missing a service as well as started serving and volunteering at our church weekly. Even have my teenage son involved with serving now. God moves in mysterious ways. He wanted us closer to him and that was the way to bring us back. You dont know at the time why hes doing it but hes doing it for us. Maybe like in our case it was to bring us back to him. God bless each of you.. I felt compelled to share with you and hopefully to give hope to those that are suffering.

    I have been feeling down all morning, just have way too much on my mind right now I don’t know what to do. I came across this and I realize that I need to look to Him for peace. Thank you for posting, I am going to come back to this later and look up some of those verses and read more. Thanks again

  60. Rebecca

    Thank u so much for this I needed this today! My husband is currently looking for a job and we are having a lot of trouble finding one! Thanks again!

  61. Suzanne Stanton

    Thank you, Bob, for your words that you quoted from the bible. This is a difficult year for us. I broke my ankle a year-an-a half ago and my twelve year-old son Michael and I lost our condo. We’ve spent the year going from one relative to another ( I had to spend two weeks in a shelter without him last year). We are waiting on a settlement from the accident and I hope that it comes Soon! I am living with my 21 year old daughter, Olivia who has three children 5 and under. She has had many struggles and has gone far off the path many times. I pray for presents for the children and my son Michael. Please pray for us to….you and your church family.
    Thank you and Merry CHRISTmas! Sue:)

  64. Tamara King

    Thank you for creating this page. I am going through a divorce and I am only 24 (no kids though)…I am scared because I feel alone and I live in a new area where I have no community. I just sat down and prayed for peace and comfort from God. I looked up this page to find encouraging Bible verses…this was exactly what I needed. I know it sounds corny, but I wrote many of these verses on note cards and placed them around my room so that I am constantly reminded of God’s hand on me. I am not alone and I know that God is there. Thank you for your reminder…but please pray that I will find a good church in this new area and that I will feel welcomed into a new community! 🙂

    live love laugh and praise the king. for he is the ruler of every thing.:) love God

  66. Angie

    My struggles are many, my victories are few. I thank God for the things I do have…like my children, family and friends. I ask God for guidance and to help me to be more like Him. Thank you for this page and all the reminders of God’s presence in our lives through the quotes and verses you post. I am a single parent of two teen boys, working full time and going to school part time. My sons are great boys who Know God, yet sometimes I feel I’m not giving them enough…we barely make ends meet and they complain about how poor we are. I constantly remind them …we are not! what do I do? Please pray for me and my family.

  67. a knight

    Angie I want to commend you on raising your 2 boys and working and going to school. You are very special for doing that. But more than that is raising your boys to know the LORD. That is what is going to keep you going and keep your boys on the right track. As far as being poor I don’t see that. We measure riches on the material things we have here on earth, these are temporary. KEEP GOD IN YOUR LIFE AND DON ‘T GIVE UP. I will pray for you. This is one of the best sites I have found on line. We need to keep GOD first in what ever we do. GOD BLESS EVERYONE.

    Yes it is good to pray for our leaders but it warns us in THE BIBLE to beware there will be people to lead us down the wrong road. Just because they are in authority does not mean they are right this is man’s law not God’s. When they want to take the 10 COMMANDANTS out of the courthouse and prayer out of school do you think GOD is happy about this? Don’t be to quick to support such an act my community did not do such a thing. Remember the devil down here is not red and have horns growing out of his head he is going to look like me and you. Go back to your teachings when you were a child Pledge the allegience to the flag say the LORDS PRAYER IN SCHOOL start this in school at an early age this maybe the only knowledge they get about THE LORD don’t take this away from them. I would be afraid if I were the person that wants to TAKE GOD out of everything. Because GOD is everything. BEWARE OF THE DEVIL HE IS IN SHEEP’S CLOTHING.

    I was recently in ahorrible car accident and feeling scared and down. These really helped me put all my worries to God and encouraged me.

  70. Anna

    I felt fear in my heart for i am in the middle of my mock exams.. I worry for the grades that I have to get to reach my goals and not have any fail on my subject. After reading Isaiah 41: 10 reminded me that I am not alone in all this, the Lord is with me as he promised never to leave my hand and uphold me to be the head and never be the tail.. Our Lord is faithful

  71. lo

    These verses really encouraged me. I’m going through a terrible time right now where I’ve made a huge mistake, and although I know God forgives me, I still feel the guilt. I know guilt is not from God, and therefore am praying for him to restore my soul and help me to realize that His love is all encompassing and that there is no limit to his forgiveness and healing. Satan loves to tell people that they aren’t good enough for God, that they’re dirty and sinful and unworthy of His love. You would think that after growing up in the church my whole life I would automatically remember the truth of God’s word and His love for me, but Satan’s power can be so strong sometimes and the only way I will overcome these feelings is through constant prayer and meditating on God’s word. God can use our sins and our mistakes for good. We just need to repent to him and turn from our evil ways. And it’s so true that sometimes we only seek God’s help when we’re going through trials and tribulations, but sometimes that is what it takes for us to stop relying on our own strength and rely on His. We should be following him all of the time, even when things are going well. When this horrible situation is over, I pray that I will be thanking God for the opportunity to grow closer to him, and that I will seek Him no matter the circumstances.

  72. David

    Thank you so much for posting this!
    Over the past year, I have been surrounded by significant issues with my health, my home, and my schoolwork.
    I am in my last year of School before University, and I only have a few months left before I finish, and have had poor attendance at the most important time in my education so far. Despite all my efforts, it seems that I am only met by critiscm, and I have often felt that only God can see my struggles. At the same time, I have felt hugely frustrated, as I often wonder why he isn’t alleviating any of my difficulties. Reading these scriptures have reminded me how much worse off I could be without God, and that he is working through this difficult time, even if I can’t see it.
    These scriptures have really helped at a time when I need it most.
    God bless you!

  73. Ben

    As I read some of these comments I’m blessed and encouraged. I have prayed over some the needs written on this web site. For with financial needs that God bless with employment and direction. And for those with family issues that the Lord use the present crisis for drawing closer to Him. Amen

  74. Lucy

    This site is very encouraging to me. Trying to find comfort for a broken heart. God is near to me since He is near the broken hearted. Therefore in the midst of this storm I have peace … bc my heart clings to Him. He becomes Supreme and bigger bc I know He would never hurt me so He has allowed my heart to break for a reason. Maybe so that I can feel as Christ did when He was betrayed. I hope, I wait, I pray.

  75. B G Drake

    Our faith is not a possession but a relationship. Knowing Him is knowing the truth and this gives us hope and expectation. Hope is the catalyst to our faith in Him, and as we walk close to Jesus through His word and seeing Him work in and through us in exactly the same way as He did the early church become abundantly manifested. Our Lord Jesus wants to work through us but we need the close relationsip with HIm through love for Him and for others, worship, praise, and witnessing of Him to this perishing world.
