10 Bible Verses To Start Your Day Right
1. Psalms 118:6
The Lord is on my side; I will not fear. What can man do to me?
This is a great reminder to us that God is on our side. He will stand firm beside us. Man cannot harm or hurt us.
Use this verse to keep God’s love and strength in your mind.
2. Lamentations 3:22-23
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.
Woo hoo, this verse helps us to start our day right because it reminds us of God’s never-ending love for us. He has mercies that never end. This should help you get through those challenging days when you feel like everyone is against you. Remember, God is FOR you.
3. 1 Corinthians 10:13
No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.
We are constantly tested and tempted in our daily lives. It may be sexual temptation or the temptation to skim money from the organization you work for.
This verse reminds us that there is a way of escape from temptation. We do not have to give in to the temptations. We are overcomers in these matters.
4. 2 Corinthians 5:7
For we live by faith, not by sight.
Things around us may look ugly. They may look as if things are going down the drain.
Our natural eyes will tell us there’s no hope. God tells us otherwise. He tells us to live by faith and not sight.
Open your spiritual eyes and let God show you His world.
5. Romans 5:4–5
And endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not disappoint us, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit that has been given to us.
Do you ever wonder why you go through the situations in your life? It’s because these situations help you to build your endurance. Upon that endurance, so many good things are produced.
Enduring the tough times gives you character, hope, and more. Keep enduring, good leader!
6. 2 Samuel 22:3
The God of my strength, in whom I will trust; my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold and my refuge; my Savior, You save me from violence.
Who do you trust in? Do you trust in God? Then He will be your strength and shield.
Rely on Him. Let him be your everything. He is willing. It’s up to you.
7. Matthew 11:28
Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.
Tired? Heavy burdened? Feel like giving up?
This sounds like a lot of the feelings a leader may feel over the course of the day. This Bible verse is telling us to do something:
Go to God. He is there for you.
Let God be your rest and restoration.
8. Psalm 34:4
I sought the Lord, and he answered me and delivered me from all my fears.
He is good. He will answer. You only have to seek.
9. John 14:27
Peace I leave with you;my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.
Jesus shares this with his disciples. They were scared and afraid. His words did something else to them. They left them with peace.
God didn’t leave the world without hope or peace. He brought peace to the earth and gave us something far greater than we could ever imagine.
Call out to God when you’re not feeling peace. He will answer and give you the peace you desire.
10. Philippians 4:6
do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.
God gives us a cure for the anxious, fidgety feelings we have. His presence.
He is with us. He never leaves us. And He wants us to know it.
Count on the fact that God is with us at all times. He will be there when we pray and give thanksgiving to Him.
