15 Encouraging Bible Verses that will help us through the hardest times

Hard times are inevitable, not because they are meant to break us, but because they are meant to make us stronger. It is in the most difficult moments that we discover our superior strength, and the power we have to overcome. As a result, we should not try to hide from our difficulties, but rather we must face them boldly, and defeat them wholly. There is a popular saying that goes, “Do not pray for an easy life, pray for the strength to endure a difficult one. – Bruce Lee.” This is because there is little value in an easy life, yet the bravest men are prepared in fire.

Yes it is true that the fires of life do burn, but we should let them burn because fire purifies. In our dying, let us remember that unless a seed dies, it cannot grow. Growth is a result of not only constant pruning, but also constant dying. Let us therefore hold to the power within us, knowing that we are more than conquerors, and that we shall overcome.

God, being the Master Builder that He is, has prepared us to face the turbulence of life, and in the end to stand. He has equipped us with the Armor of His Word, which for us, is the fuel that sustains us. There are no words more encouraging than words that assure us that God is always with us, and that He will never leave us nor forsake us. As we read through the pages of the Bible, we will find all we need for our life and also our Godly requirement.

Let us take a look at “15 Encouraging Bible Verses That Will Help Us Through The Hardest Times,”and let us be the more prepared to go the distance, until we hear the words “well done!”
