12 Bible Verses For Faith In Hard Times

12 Bible Verses For Faith In Hard Times

Remind yourself that God is always with you.

Lately, I have felt lost at what God wants for my life. Ever since, I've come back to UWG everything has been horrible. It seems that I can't catch a break. I'm trying my best to focus on school, work, and extracurricular activities. But it's hard when I'm having issues with my apartment/roommates and knowing my family back home is struggling and needs many prayers. All, I keep thinking is maybe Carrollton isn't where I belong anymore. I've asked God if He can guide me in the right direction. Below, I have found Bible verses that have helped get me through these rough, past couple of weeks.

1. Isaiah 43:2

"When you go through deep waters, I will be with you."

2. Psalm 37:5

"Commit your way to the Lord. Trust in Him, and He will act."

3. Romans 8:18

"The pain that you've been feeling, can't compare to the joy that's coming."

4. Proverbs 31:25

"She is clothed in strength, and dignity, and she laughs without fear of the future."

5. Joshua 1:9

"Be bold. Be brave. Be courageous."

6. Ecclesiastes 3:1

"There is a time for everything and a reason for every activity under the heavens."

7. Isaiah 41:10

"Don't be afraid, for I am with you. Don't be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand."

8. Isaiah 66:9

"I will not cause pain without allowing something new to be born, says the Lord."

9. Psalm 91:4

"He will cover you with His feathers, and under His wings, you will find refuge; His faithfulness will be your shield and rampart."

10. Psalm 62:1-2

"My soul finds rest in God alone, my salvation comes from Him, He alone is my rock and my salvation."

11. Philippians 4:13

"I can do everything through Christ who gives me strength."

12. Jeremiah 29:11

"For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

Faith Is A Swinging Bridge

Stepping off of solid ground can be intimidating, but our faith will keep us stable.

Lately I have felt like I am failing God. He has called me to do great things and I think about that all the time but I am not actively doing anything about it. It seems like my faith is always stronger at certain points in my life but during other times I seem to place God on the back burner. I have felt guilty about this but the truth is faith is like a rope bridge.

So first, God calls you to do something. Whether you are being called to third world countries or you are needed in your own city, you see where God is calling you and you start your journey. The first step on the bridge is shaky because it is not the solid ground you are used to. So you grab on to the sides. It is easy to cling to God when you are uncertain and you need extra support.

Then you get comfortable and you're able to walk freely. You can let go of the sides and walk on your own. So yes there are times when you are on your journey and you aren't relying on God as much as you were in the beginning.

But the wind picks up and the bridge is shaking and you are back clinging on to the sides even tighter than you were before. It is perfectly okay to grow closer to God when life is hard. God isn't going to hold the times when you were independent against you.

So whether you make it to the end of the bridge or you stop in the middle to take a break, you look back. You look back at how far you have come and you see that through shaky starts, confidence, and windy times you had your support system.

The bridge below your feet was always there. Yeah gripping on to the sides is helpful but imagine if there was nothing under your feet. Yes, it is important to read your Bible every day to have a relationship with God. But we shouldn’t beat ourselves up when we aren’t able to. There are so many other ways to have a relationship with God and it is important to incorporate that into our daily lives.

You look back and you see that whether you needed Him or not, God was there. You see that whether you were seeking God or not, he was there to help guide you. He is always there. When God calls us to do something we work so hard to get there but it is okay to take a break.

God wants us to take the time to stop in the middle of the bridge and look around at everything he has created. Maybe we need the time to stand still on the shaky bridge before we continue our journey.

The only thing that matters is that we do not turn around and return to the solid ground we first stepped off of.
