If we are feeling down and need to be lifted up, the Bible contains many uplifting passages. Here is a selection of some of them.
Give yourself to the Lord;
trust in him, and he will help you
Jesus looked straight at them and answered, “This is impossible for human beings, but for God everything is possible.” (Matthew 19:26)
I have the strength to face all conditions by the power that Christ gives me. (Philippians 4:13)
You answered me when I called to you;
with your strength you strengthened me.
The Lord is my strong defender;
he is the one who has saved me.
He is my God, and I will praise him,
my father’s God, and I will sing about his greatness.
Go to the Lord for help,
and worship him continually.
(1 Chronicles 16:11)
Do not be afraid—I am with you!
I am your God—let nothing terrify you!
I will make you strong and help you;
I will protect you and save you.
I am the Lord All-Powerful. So don’t depend on your own power or strength, but on my Spirit. (Zechariah 4:6)
But his answer was: “My grace is all you need, for my power is greatest when you are weak.” I am most happy, then, to be proud of my weaknesses, in order to feel the protection of Christ’s power over me. (2 Corinthians 12:9)
You will live secure and full of hope;
God will protect you and give you rest.
