10 Bible Verses of Encouragement about God's Blessings


We all need encouragement and the best place to go is to the Bible.

In this blog Post I have tried to gather some Bible passages or Bible verses which will encourage us all around the topic of God's Blessings.







I do believe that we should not just grab a verse and read it on its own but we should always lift our bibles and read a passage of scripture to make sure that we know the real meaning and context of each of the verses we are putting our trust in. 

I pray that you will do the same and only use this list to guide you as to where you may find help.



So here are 10 Bible verses or short passages for us to turn to in times when we need to be encouraged to think about  
Blessings
 




1.   Numbers 6 v 24-26     

When I think of a Godly blessing this is the one that comes to mind as I have great memories of singing this in the church I grew up in each time a child was baptized.


"The Lord bless you and keep you;
the Lord make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you.  
The Lord lift up His countenance upon you and give you peace."




 


2.   Psalm 1 v 1


Blessing comes when we are upright in heart, mind and action.



"Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly,
nor standeth in the way of sinners, 
nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.

But his delight is in the law of the Lord; 
and in his law doth he meditate day and night.

And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, 
that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; 
his leaf also shall not wither; 
and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper."








3.   Ephesians 1 v 3

What more could we want but to be blessed by God and be able to praise and honour Him.


"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ."






4.   Psalm 34 v 8


    Trusting in God leads to blessing.

“Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good;                       Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!








5.   John 20 v 29


   We have not seen Jesus in person but we must remember that we are not any less blessed because of this.

"Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed."










6.   1 Peter 3 v 9 

Receiving blessing and blessing others goes hand in hand.

"Finally all of you be of one mind, having compassion for one another; love as brothers, be tenderhearted, be courteous; not returning evil for evil or reviling for reviling, but on the contrary blessing, knowing that you were called to this, that you may inherit a blessing."







7.   2 Corinthians 9 v 8

We are not just blessed to receive something for ourselves but to know the blessing of being in the position to bless others as well.


"And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work."





8.   Psalm 29 v 11

        Who is greater than the Lord to bless us 

                  "The Lord sat enthroned at the flood,                                                            and the Lord sits as King forever.                                                              The Lord will give strength to His people;                                         the Lord will bless His people with peace."









9.   Isaiah 30 v 18


 The Lord is the one who determines when and how He blesses us

 

"And therefore will the Lord wait, that He may be gracious to you, and therefore will He be exalted, that He may have mercy upon you: for the Lord is a God of judgement: blessed are all they that wait for Him."











10.   Psalm 32 v 1



   On a final note the greatest blessing of all that is freely given 
   to us - sins forgiven


 "Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven,
whose sin is covered."
