Hurt & Pain

Bible verses about hurt and pain.

Life is beautiful but full of ups and downs. We go through various seasons that bring different experiences, both good and bad. As much as we rejoice in the good times, we also go through hurtful moments that can crush our spirits and leave us feeling hopeless. Sometimes, we feel lost for words and don't know where to turn for comfort. But the Bible offers hope and encouragement through its teachings and verses that remind us of God's love and care for us. In this blog post, we will share ten comforting Bible verses for when you feel hurt.

Isaiah 41:10: "So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand." This verse reminds us that God is always with us, and we should not be afraid. He is our strength and helper in times of trouble.

Matthew 11:28: "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest." This verse encourages us to come to Jesus when we feel exhausted and overwhelmed. He promises to give us rest and peace that surpasses human understanding.

2 Corinthians 1:3-4: "Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God." This verse reminds us that God is the source of all comfort, and He can use our experiences to comfort others who are going through similar situations.

Hebrews 4:15-16: "For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin. Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need." This verse reminds us that Jesus can relate to our pain and struggles and invites us to come boldly to God's throne and receive His help and mercy.
