Bible Verses I Found Encouraging

Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins. 1 Peter 4:8
And now these three things remain: faith, hope and love. And the greatest of these is love. 1 Corinthians 13:13
Ask, and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives; he who seeks, finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened. Matthew 7:7-8
At that time, Jesus said, "I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and of earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children. Matthew 11:25
Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you; before you were born, I set you apart. Jeremiah 1:5
Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked, or stand in the way of sinners, or sit in the seat of mockers. But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night. Psalms 1:1-2
But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8
But when you pray, go into your room, close the door, and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. Matthew 6:6
Children, obey your parents in everything, for this pleases the Lord. Colassions 3:2
Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28
Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God, without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe. Philippians 2:14-15
Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is-his good, pleasing, and perfect will. Romans 12:2
Do not repay evil with evil, or insult with insult, but with blessing because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing. 1 Peter 3:9
Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility, consider others better than yourself. Each of you should look not only to your interests, but also to the interests of others. Philippians 2:3-4
Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life and only a few find it. Matthew 7:13-14
For it is by grace that you have been saved, through faith-and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift by God-not by works, so that no one can boast. Epehsians 2: 8-9
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Ephesians 6: 12
God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore, we will not fear, though the earth give way, and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea. Psalms 46:1-2
He will keep you strong to the end, so that you will be blameless on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. God, who has called into fellowship with his son Jesus Christ our Lord, is faithful. 1 Corinthians 1:8-9
I can do everything through he who gives me strength. Philippians 4:13
If we live, we live to the Lord; and if we die, we die to the Lord. So, whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord. Romans 14:8
In your anger, do not sin. Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, and do not give the devil a foothold. Ephesians 4: 26-27
Jesus turned and saw her. "Take heart, daughter," he said, "your faith has healed you." And the woman was healed from that moment on. Matthew 9:22
Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for he who loves his fellowmen has fulfilled the law. Romans 13:8
Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves. Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor serving the Lord. Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Share with God's people who are in need. Practice hospitality. Bless those who persecute you; bless, and do not curse. Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn. Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position. Do not be conceited. Do not repay anyone evil with evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everybody. If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. Do not take revenge, my friends, but leave room for God's wrath, for it is written: "It is mine to revenge; I will repay," says the Lord. On the contrary, "If your enemy is hungry, give him something to eat; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head." Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. Romans 12:9-21
The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Against such things there is no law. Galations 5:22-23
The hour has come for you to wake up from your slumber, because our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed. The night is nearly over; the day is almost here. So let us behave decently, as in the daytime, not in orgies and drunkenness, not in sexual immortality and debauchery, not in dissension and jealousy. Rather, clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ, and do not think about how to graitfy the desires of the sinful nature. Romans 13:11-14
The Lord himself goes before you, and will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Deuteronomy 31:8
Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourself with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other, and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. Colassions 3: 12-13
Therefore, do not let sin reign in your mortal body, so that you may obey it's evil desires. Do not offer the parts of your body to sin, as instruments of wickedness, but rather offer yourselves to God, as those who have been brought from death to life. And offer the parts of your body to him as instruments of righteousness. For sin shall not be your master, because you are not under law, but under grace. Romans 6:13-14
Therefore, everyone who hears these words of mine, and puts them into practice, is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. But everyone who hears these words of mind, and does not put them into practice, is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the wind blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash. Matthew 7: 24-27
Therefore, I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink, or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? Matthew 6:25
Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Romans 5:1
Why should I fear when evil days come, when wicked deceivers surround me? Psalms 49:5
You have been set free from sin, and have become slaves to righteousness. Romans 6:18
Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as braided hair and the wearing of gold jewerly and fine clothes. Instead, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God's sight. 1 Peter 3: 3-4
