Hold on to God’s words whenever life makes you feel defeated and helpless.
Life is filled with ups and downs. Occasionally, we experience those ‘down’ moments that leave us feeling hopeless.
As Christians, we are fortunate to have God’s words to comfort, sustain, encourage and empower us.
Here are 10 uplifting Bible verses to turn to whenever you feel hopeless.
“I will lift up my eyes to the hills — From whence comes my help? My help comes from the Lord, Who made heaven and earth. He will not allow your foot to be moved; He who keeps you will not slumber. Behold, He who keeps Israel Shall neither slumber nor sleep.”
Isaiah 12:2 (GNTD)
"God is my savior; I will trust him and not be afraid. The Lord gives me power and strength; he is my savior."
Isaiah 41:10 (NKJV)
“Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand."
“For I, the LORD your God will hold your right hand, saying to you, ‘Fear not, I will help you.’”
Isaiah 54: 17 (NIV)
“No weapon forged against you will prevail, and you will refute every tongue that accuses you. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and this is their vindication from me,” declares the Lord.”

“Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.”
