Are you struggling at work? Are you searching for a job? Are you finding bible verses to overcome your problems and trials? Are you struggling with your faith in God?
Whatever the challenges you Encounter in life, you must realize that they happen for a reason. Life is full of challenges because God allows it.
The devil is the main cause of all your problems. He is responsible for all the misfortune you face in life.
When you are severely disappointed and discouraged, never lose hope. I have compiled bible verses about life struggles that will motivate you to keep fighting on.
You may think that God has left you. You may think that you are alone in this world.
But, as faithful Christians, we are never alone in the world. God watches over us. He knows our pains. He knows the problems we are facing.
Each time you feel discouraged, think of the words of Paul to the Christians at Philippians.
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
You may be worried about your health; Paul is saying you need not be bothered about it. You may also be jobless for years; Paul is reminding you that you need not be anxious.
Whatever the challenge you face in life, remember these words of Paul. “Do not be anxious about anything.” When you feel like there is no hope anymore, follow the instructions of Paul.
Pray, pray and pray. Let all your request and challenges be made known to God. Tell God you need him. There is no miracle that God can not do in your life.
He has healed the broken-hearted. He has taken away illness from the sick. God has raised the dead over and over again in the bible. God said to Abraham;
Is there anything too hard for the Lord?
Bible verses about life struggles
I have compiled ten Bible verses about life challenges that will inspire you. Read, get inspired and motivated.
1. Psalm 46:1-3,7 – bible verse about overcoming adversity
God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give wayand the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, The Lord Almighty is with us;the God of Jacob is our fortress
This is one of my favorite bible verses when faced with difficulty. If you are sick, jobless, unhappy, hopeless, and disappointed, you must remember these words of David.
At all times, God is by our side. He is always protecting us. The devil wishes to end our lives but he can’t. So, he makes us go through enormous challenges.
Pause for a second and think. God said to the devil;
“Very well, then, he is in your hands; but you must spare his life”
Even in the midst of challenges, God still cares about us. He warned the devil never to take the life of Job.
Therefore, do not be discouraged. God is our refuge and strength. He is always present to rescue us from all the temptations we encounter.
2. 1 Peter 5:6-7
Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time.Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you
3. John 16:33
I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”
4. Isaiah 41:10
fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
5. Colossians 3:15
And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful.
6. 2 Thessalonians 3:16
Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times in every way. The Lord be with you all.
7. 2 Timothy 1:7
for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.
8. Jeremiah 1:8

Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own
10. Jeremiah 17:7
But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord,whose confidence is in him
What does the bible say about life struggles?
No one is immune from the temptations of the devil. Adam and Eve faced temptations. Jesus Christ was also tempted and killed by the devil. What matters most is how we react when we are tempted.
An example of a man that faced enormous temptations from the devil, despite serving God faithfully, is Job. Job was not just an ordinary servant of God. He was not just faithful in his dealings with God.
The bible says he was blameless in God’s eyes. He hated the things of this world and served God diligently. Yet, The devil still tempted him.
Job had ten children (three daughters and seven sons) and lost all of them in a day. His riches disappeared in the twinkling of an eye. He was also struck with illness. Yet, he was unmoved.
There are two takeaways from the story of Job that will inspire you today.
1. God has always protected us
The devil has no power over our lives except God allows it. In the case of Job, The devil was powerless and said;
Have you not put a hedge around him and his household and everything he has? You have blessed the work of his hands, so that his flocks and herds are spread throughout the land
Each time we face challenges, we tend to forget all God has done for us in the past. Each day we wake up, forgetting that God protected us through the night.
For years, you’ve not had issues with what to eat, drink or wear. Yet, we quickly forget that God has provided for us and protected us from the devil.
The devil only had a chance in the life of Job because God allowed it. If you are facing challenges, you must think this way.
2. The righteous will still be persecuted
Sometimes, we get disappointed that God allows us to face enormous challenges. We are surprised that we are sick, jobless, heartbroken despite serving God diligently.
Here are the words of Job that will inspire you. He said;
Shall we accept good from God, and not trouble?” Job 2:10
God has blessed us from our beginning. He has provided for us and protected our family. God has always been there for us one way or the other.
If we are going through challenges, we must not forget all God has done in our lives. We must think like Job and remember that when temptations arise, we must still be steadfast in his service.
