Whether you’re worried about finances or struggling with heartache from relationships, turn to these words of wisdom from God’s word for solace and restoration.
Here are a few Scriptural nuggets that you’ll want to keep close by during times of need.
#1. John 14:27
“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.”
If life is incredibly hectic, this verse may help you find the peace you need in troubling times.
#2. Hebrews 10:23
“Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.”
Hope is what keeps us going, even if obstacles seem insurmountable.
How are you maintaining your hope and your faith?
#3. Jeremiah 29:11-13
“‘ For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the LORD, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.'”
Everyone has a purpose, including you.
It’s easy to forget, but this helpful verse should always be on hand to spur your memory.
#4. Psalm 46:1-3
“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.”
Psalms offer plenty of support when you need to be uplifted, and this verse reminds you that no matter what you’re going through, you’re strong enough to withstand it.
#5. John 14:1-4
“Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going.”
It can be easy to get down on yourself during difficult times.
Remembering your faith to see the light at the end of the tunnel is important.
#6. John 15:4
“Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.”
Being with God provides you with the support you need to flourish.
#7. Galatians 6:9
“Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.”
You should never feel as though your hard work isn’t paying off.
Stay motivated and steadfast in your beliefs.
What you reap is what you sow!
#8. 1 Peter 5:6–7
“Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time He may exalt you, casting all your anxieties on Him, because He cares for you.”
What are you most anxious about?
Release those anxieties to God so you can better enjoy the life He has given you.
#9. 2 Timothy 1:7
“For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.”
There’s a lot to fear in the modern world, but as long as you have faith, you can overcome it.
#10. 1 John 4:16
“So we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.”
Love is something we all need, especially from God.
1 John 4:16 reminds us of that ever-present love when we need it most.
#11. Psalm 23:5-6
“You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.”
Psalm 23:5-6 reminds you to retain your strength and your faith through times of hardship.
Good things will always follow, even if they are challenging to find.
#12. Hebrews 10:24-25
“And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.”
