The Fundamental Top 500

The best Bible verses for encouragement may not offer quick and easy solutions for eliminating the trouble, sadness or grief in our lives. But they do give us the tools to weather the storm and get through whatever it is that is bringing us sorrow.

The scriptures don't abandon us and leave us to flounder spiritually but Christians looking for a quick fix might experience some disappointment because God doesn't make the promise that if we follow him that all our problems will be solved. Instead He reminds us that the rain will fall equally on the just as well as the unjust.

Troubleshooting the messes that humans make of their lives and the world is not God's job. Rather, He gives us the advice that during troubling moments, we should turn to Bible verses for encouragement, comfort and a reinforcement of faith not to look for a remedy for our car not starting, not having enough money in our bank account or fixing a relationship gone bad.

His promise is that our faith will deflect the darts launched in our direction not to prevent them. Here's one of my favorite inspirational Bible verses for encouragement that explains the need to carefully foster our faith.

Ephesians 6:16
"Above all, take the shield of faith, with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one."
