The troubles in the world are too numerous to mention.
But as Christians, in our trials, we must pray and trust in our maker’s ability to save us.
Just yesterday, I heard news that really bothered me.
A close friend, who was diagnosed with HIV last year, was contemplating suicide.
She has had multiple unsuccessful attempts to take her own life.
In her words, she says, “I feel I am incomplete when I am with my friends,” and “there is no point in living anymore.”
I have counseled her in the past, and she was able to find some strength from my words.
However, It does seem she has lost hope to prevail over her trials.
In times like these, there are numerous bible verses about peace and strength to motivate our soul.
We must all go through trials at some point in our lives.
When we do, we must find peace and strength from God’s word.
God can protect us and deliver us from our troubles.
He is able to come to our aid and answer all our prayers miraculously.
If you are struggling with your health, finances, family issues, or unemployment, you can trust in God.
I have compiled bible verses about peace and strength to inspire you today.

Final words of encouragement
1. It is not the end
Your sorrow, pain, ill-health, or your financial problems is undoubtedly not the end of your life.
At all times, we must remain undeterred.
And that’s because, we know, we have hope in our Lord — That, when the time comes, he will take away our troubles and bless us miraculously.
In the past, I have had numerous challenges that tested my faith.
And despite not being a devoted Christian, God still came to my aid.
He was able to strengthen me all through my trials.
The truth is, peace and strength can only come from God.
So, depend on him, and he will deliver you.
2. Pray ceaselessly
If you can’t trust God, or you don’t think there is a way out of your predicaments; At least pray.
Prayer can do wonders in your life.
I have seen the miraculous power of prayer, and I have been a witness to God’s saving power.
Of course, we need to have faith in God for our prayers to be answered.
We need to believe that he can do all things.
The truth is, from my experience, God answers prayers even when there is doubt in our mind.
Don’t lean on your thoughts. Just pray and let God take control.
May God come to your rescue today and fight your battles. May he bring peace and give you the strength in your trials. Amen.
