We are assured the Bible heals the most broken and pain-filled places in our souls. Only God can bring comfort for those who are desperate for hope in their suffering. Despite the sadness, the Bible is living and active and brings to the heart the encouragement that life will feel good again.
Psalm 119:92 says, “Unless your law had been my delight, I would then have perished in my affliction.” Scriptures record substantial verses to help one grieve with Hope. Here are a few verses from the Psalms to comfort you:
Psalm 147:3 “He heals the brokenhearted And binds up their wounds.”
Psalm 34:18 “The Lord is near to those who have a broken heart, And saves such as have a contrite spirit.”
Psalm 46:1 “God is our refuge and strength, A very present help in trouble.”
Psalm 73:26 “My flesh and my heart fail; But God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.”
Psalm 119:50 “My comfort in my suffering is this: Your promise preserves my life.”
Psalm 23:4 “Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.”
Psalm 9:9 “The Lord also will be a refuge for the oppressed, A refuge in times of trouble.”
Psalm 94:18 “If I say, “My foot slips,” Your mercy, O Lord, will hold me up.”
Psalm 86:15 “But you, LORD, are a compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness.”
Psalm 27:13 “I would have lost heart unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.”
Psalm 91:1 “He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.”
Psalm 91:2 “I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.”
