13 Encouraging Bible Verses for Men

Let’s face it – men need encouragement. We try to act tough like we can handle everything on our own. But deep down, if we are being honest, we need to be lifted up just like anyone else. So it’s a good thing there are many encouraging Bible verses for men from which we can draw inspiration.

Encouraging Bible Verses for the Dark Times of Life (Joshua 1:9)

Hidden Nuggets Series #103 – 35 Encouraging Bible Verses

Let’s face it…we’ve all had some dark times in life. Times when we felt like not going on. Times where we felt like all hope was lost. Times where we hurt. Times that didn’t make sense.

encouraging Bible versesThere is no question we need to be lifted up during those difficult times. But often we don’t know where to turn. Even those close to us like friends and family may not be able to help in the way we need.

Fortunately, there is One to whom we can always turn. God, through His words, has given us many encouraging Bible verses to which we can look and draw hope and comfort. They can inspire us even in the midst of life’s turmoil.

One of the best books to turn to for encouraging Bible verses is Psalms. King David wrote a good portion of that book and evidently he really needed some encouragement. He was routinely calling out to God to give him help, strength and joy in the midst of life’s trials.

Like this one from Psalm 84:11, which happens to be one of my favorites I wrote about,

“For the Lord God is a sun and a shield; the Lord will give grace and glory, no good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly.”

Being your light and your protector through the tough times is just a taste of what God has to offer you. There are many more encouraging Bible verses to lift you up. I offer a few of them to you now.
