15 Encouraging Bible Verses to Help You Feel Better

One thing we will all need at some time or the other in our life is a word of encouragement. Encouragement is a spiritual fuel that boosts our spirits as we become weary. Weariness can be a very heavy load, yet there is no weariness that can defeat an encouraged heart. An encouraged heart is the answer to our broken hearts. Perhaps this is why the Bible is filled with words of encouragement, to encourage our broken hearts.

The good news is that God heals the broken hearted and He binds up their wounds.

Be encouraged. There is no situation that deserves to take your whole life away from you. Be strong. You can recover from any situation, and be made whole through the grace of God. 

Don’t be discouraged as you travel through your heartaches, be encouraged and empowered to go on.

You can do it. The Bible is filled with pure words of encouragements perfectly formulated for you. God knew that you would need a little encouragement in your times of despair. You will make it if you lean on God. 

Here are 15 Bible verses that have the power to guide you through your hurt, and encourage you to go on.

Philippians 4:6–7 (NIV) Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Psalm 34:4–5, 8 I sought the LORD, and He answered me and delivered me from all my fears. Those who look to Him are radiant, and their faces shall never be ashamed. Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good! Blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him!

Matthew 6:31–34 (NIV) “So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or “What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”
