Bible Verses for Stress
Seek the LORD and his strength; seek his presence continually – Chronicles 16:11
The Bible is full of verses that offer guidance and comfort in times of stress.
This verse from Chronicles reminds us that God is always with us and that we can find strength in him when we are struggling. The Bible also teaches us that stressful situations are a part of life and that we should not be afraid to face them.
For the Lord is watching over our shoulder.
It is the LORD who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not leave you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed. – Deuteronomy 31:8
The Bible is full of verses that can provide comfort and reassurance in times of stress. Deuteronomy 31:8 is a particularly powerful verse, as it reminded the Israelites that God would never leave them or forsake them. This is a promise that applies to all of God’s children, no matter what we are facing.
When we are feeling overwhelmed by stress, we can take comfort in knowing that God is with us always. The Bible also tells us not to fear or be dismayed, even when the future is uncertain. This does not mean that we should not take steps to reduce our stress levels, but rather that we should trust in God’s plans for us.
