When Life Gets Hard

Life is a never-ending cycle of ups and downs. Sometimes it may feel as if there is no way out. People find solace in many things, some good and some bad. The Bible can always be used to seek comfort. Here are a few verses that can help you get through your troubles.

Psalms 56:11 KJV

"In God I have put my trust: I will not be afraid what can man do unto me."

At times, it may feel as if the whole world is against you, but God is always in your corner. He will never leave you nor forsake you (Deuteronomy 31:6 NKJV)

1 Peter 4:4-5

"In regard to these, they think it strange that you do not run with them in the same flood of dissipation, speaking evil of you. They will give an account to Him who is ready to judge the living and the dead."

1 Peter 3:14, 17

14: "But even if you should suffer for righteousness' sake, you are blessed. 'And do not be afraid of their threats, nor be troubled.'"

17: "For it is better, if it is the will of God, to suffer for doing good than for doing evil."

My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. (James 1:2 NKJV) And not only that but glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance, character; and character, hope (Romans 5:3-4)

James 1:19-20 NKJV

"So then, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath; for the wrath of man does not produce the righteousness of God."

Ephesians 4:26 NKJV

"'Be angry, and do not sin': do not let the sun go down on your wrath.

God commanded us to love thy neighbor. Once you love others, as you love yourself , your spiritual walk will become easier. Love covers a multitude of sins. (1 Peter 4:8) He who abides in love abides in God. (1 John 4:16) If someone says, " I love God," and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen, cannot love God whom he has not seen? (1 John 4:20)
