When a friend or family member is feeling down or discouraged, it is often the perfect time to share inspirational Bible verses or inspirational quotes. Use these powerful promises in your own times of discouragement to uplift, rejuvenate and be reminded of God’s commitment to your best quality of life. These verses encourage, comfort and are a reminder that almost any trial can be weathered with the promises provided by God’s Word.
Although inspirational words are often used for specific purposes, such as to comfort in grief, or to encourage someone who is struggling financially, the uplifting message are best for turning one’s attention away from self and toward the spiritual side of life. When your attention is focused on God, somehow the temporal things seem less important, less discouraging and less frustrating. Often a Bible verse can be found which seems almost like a message directly from God to your ears. Just spending time in the Word, reading and talking to God about your specific problem is sharing with a Friend who already knows what is bothering you and who already has the answer available through His word. That is the amazing power and strength that is available each time God speaks to us. God’s commitment to His people is reflected in every aspect of daily life. He promises temporal things such as food, clothing and water. He also promises spiritual strength and physical strength. We can claim the joy of His presence by incorporating these verses into our daily lives.
