There is power in the word of God.
The bible is there to help strengthen our beliefs from time to time. When we are discouraged, we can pick up ourselves through powerful bible verses.
Are you worried about the plans of the Devil? Are you thinking about the problems you are facing? Do you believe God can strengthen you through inspiring bible verses?
When you are troubled, it is important you believe in God. God can make an on-the-spot change to your situation.
He can instantly make you feel happier. God can also remove every form of troubles in your life. You only need to believe that he is your creator and he can do all things.
Be Like Martha, Lazarus sister. She said;
“Lord, if You had been here, my brother would not have died. Even now I know that whatever You ask of God, God will give to You.”
She believed. She knew that the devil had taken her brother’s life. But she believed that God could do anything. She believed that even in death, a miracle can still happen if you have faith in God.
Therefore, no matter how hopeless your circumstances are, you must put your trust in God. Yes, he can do anything you ask of Him.
Are you struggling with health challenges? Are you dealing with serious illnesses? Are you unemployed and jobless? Are you struggling with addiction?

My Top 10 Powerful Bible verses
Don’t feel you are alone. I feel loneliness in my hearts at times. When I feel this way, I quickly grab the bible and remind myself of what a lovely father I have.
Yes, God loves us even more than we think. So, why will I be afraid?
I have compiled my favorite bible verses to strengthen you. Read and be blessed.
1. 1 Corinthians 15:19
If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable
If you’ve been through a lot recently, it is important you look at this Bible verse very closely. This is Paul, writing to the Corinthians Christians. He described the life we live in now and a new life that we’ve not seen.
We currently live in a world where the devil rules. The devil tries all he can to make us unhappy, sad, and curse God with our lips. He tries to make you feel lonely, miserable and rejected so you can be swayed to sin.
The devil is very tricky I must say. He causes you to be unhappy, yet makes you feel you can get happiness in sin. The devil says in our hearts if you sin you shall surely not die. He makes you accept wickedness as a way of life. The devil leads you to fornication, drunkenness, idolatry, and sexual immoralities.
Nevertheless, when you are feeling downhearted, you must never let the Devil rule your heart. Yes, you feel hopeless, but Paul is reminding you that there is a greater hope.
Carefully look at Paul words. You will understand that we have a greater hope that God has promised us. We have a hope to live everlastingly without sickness, death, joblessness or addiction.
Most importantly, we also have hope in this life too. Paul said, “If we hope in this life only.” This means we can hope for an encounter in this life. Therefore, we must pray to God about our situation right away.
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.
2. Hebrews 13:6
So we say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?”
This is another inspiring bible verse from Paul. He was quoting the words of David here (Psalm 118:6). David was a man after God’s heart and king of the Israelites.
Think about how David’s life transcended from grass to Grace. Remember how David fought with Goliath fearlessly. He was just a boy, yet, he had the heart of a man because he had a great helper – God.
Therefore, be confident to say to yourself “the lord is my helper.” Do not be afraid to say these words. God is glorified when we praise him. When you are going through difficulties, your prayer and praises can move God to act.
If God is your helper and giver of strength, there is nothing any man can do to you. They may try, they may gather, they will even physically try to harm you, but with God, they will never succeed.
So, if you are downhearted, this powerful bible verse should inspire you right away. Say in your hearts or loudly; “God is my helper, there is nothing anyone can do to me.’
You can pray thus;
Thank you, Jesus, for the breath of life. Thank you for everything you’ve continued to do in my life. I know you’ve always heard my prayers. I know you’ve seen the pains I’m going through.
I know you are the Almighty God. I also know that if you are on my side no one can harm me. Redeem my soul and fill my hearts with Joy. Thank you father, through the power of Christ, I pray.
3. Matthew 6:26
Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?
This is one of my favorite bible verses. It is so inspiring to my soul. Each time I read this verse of the Bible, I understand the way God sees us.
First, remember the book of Genesis. God created man to have dominion. Yes, authority over everything on earth. This means the lions and tigers could not harm man. Adam had control over everything.
We’ve only found ourselves here because of sin. Through the sin of disobedience, God cursed man to suffer. He cursed the woman too (Genesis 3:16-17).
God said to Eve, “I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow, thou shalt bring forth children.” And to Adam God said, “cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life.”
Yet, though his son Jesus Christ, God is saying that he still cares. That despite all we’ve done, That we are far greater than the birds of the air.
How does the bird of the air feed? God provides for them. We are the image of God, right? Why will God abandon us and yet feed the birds of the air?
In verse 31-33, Christ said,
So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well
4. Proverbs 3:5-6
Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths
As expected, when faced with difficulties, we think about how to overcome the problems ourselves.
If we are facing financial issues, we ask our friends for help. If we need money to start a business, we take a loan from the bank. Also, if we are sick, we visit the doctor for a solution.
While all these are the right things to do, they are not the most important. At all times, we must let God lead our lives. We must tell him all we are going through.
Never lean on your own understanding but pray to God to assist you. Before going to your friend to ask for help, pray to God about it. Before, seeing a doctor about your ill health, let your request be known to God through prayer.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. Philippians 4:6
5. 1 Corinthians 15:58
Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain
This is yet another encouraging bible verse. No matter what you are going through “stand firm” in your faith in Christ. Continue to serve God with your soul and mind because He will make a way when there seem to be none.
