There are so many comforting bible verses in the Bible. Everywhere God tells you not to give up but to trust the Lord, no matter the circumstances. And those verses are so important; sometimes we really have to live out of them!
The Bible verse of comfort and encouragement is in fact, all that we really need in our tough situations. The Bible tells us to use the Bible verses as bread, bread for the soul. Food for our inner man.
All the inspirational scriptures you can fin in the Bible will give you all nutrition that you need to stand hard times. So do not give up when your heart is broken, or life just seems too hard.
The fact is that God is always there with you. In those times when you are going through tough circumstances, it is often hard to feel that God loves you. So many things are going on in our lives and we often feel confused and abundant instead of feeling loved by God.
But here is why it is so important not to build your life upon feelings but on the word of God. The comforting verses from the Bible will give you a solid ground to stand on. So grab the word of God and start “eating” His word!
Here’s how to let your comforting Bible verses come alive in your life:
Take some encouraging Bible verses that are telling about your situation, read them like God speaks in a personal way to you. Put your own name into the verse, so you really get that God cares about you. Because He does!
(Ex: The LORD is Karen’s shepherd; Karen shall not want, etc) His word is there for you to believe and trust it!

The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever. Psalms 23:1-6 (KJV)
One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to enquire in his temple.

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah. There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High.Psalms 55:22 (KJV)
God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her, and that right early. The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: he uttered his voice, the earth melted. The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.
Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.Psalms 46:1-7 (KJV)
