10 Bible Verses for Challenging Times

10 Bible Verses for Challenging Times

When life gets hard, the first thing that I want to do is go to my bed, pull the covers over my head and escape from the world.  I want to hide - from questions, from problems, from bank accounts and from life.  When I do this, I find my mind often wanders to the "how comes" and "what ifs" of life.  My worry grows like a baloon being inflated with helium, until it reaches near it's popping point.

Many times, I don't turn to God until I am so worn out from my troubles that all I have left to cling to is Him. 

It is here where I can let go of my self-focus and open my eyes to see beyond my immediate circumstances. I see the one standing ready to embrace me.  I see truth.  I can find refuge in God's Word, which stands ready to speak right into our difficult circumstances. If only I turned to Him ealier.

We all have times where life crashes before our eyes.  We all feel like we want to run and hide.  We all have a Lord waiting to speak a fresh Word into our hearts.  

Hear what the Lord has to say to you.

1. Philippians 4:9

We can look to the world to fill our needs – but only God completely fills.


“But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus” Philippians 4:19
