21 Biblical Affirmations for Difficult Days

One great way to combat the fear and anxiety that comes with difficult days is by speaking scriptural affirmations. Read on and you will find below a list of 21 biblical affirmations for difficult days.

“We can look at Job, we can look at Lamentations, we can look at the Psalms, we can look at so many heroes of the faith who at different times had questions, who faced unbelief, yet God kept them, and they continued, in their doubts, to lean towards God, to lean and doubt in a way that continued to keep them attached to the vine and seeking Jesus in all of it.” — Laura Wifler

Yes! You are in a difficult season of life right now and your emotions are all over the place. It feels like the rug is being swept from under your feet with all of these trials and challenges you are experiencing. But, I want you to remember that you are not alone on this journey.

The bible is full of stories of men and women who endured hardship and went through difficult seasons. Elijah was depressed and suicidal. Hannah was barren and bullied. Job lost all his children and possessions in one single day. Hezekiah was at the verge of death. Mary and Martha lost their brother Lazarus.

David was tormented and chased by a jealous King. Peter struggled mentally and emotionally after he denied Jesus thrice. Ruth lost her husband, father-in-law and brother -in-law and had a bleak future staring her in the face.

Joseph was sold into slavery by his own brothers and was later imprisoned for a false accusation. The bleeding woman endured a horrible condition for 12 years. Apostle Paul had a thorn in his flesh. Jesus was betrayed by one of disciples, denied by another, beaten and eventually crucified.

All of these bible characters walked through difficult seasons. And every trial is an opportunity for God to work in our hearts, refine our character and draw us nearer to him. In those difficult days, rather than sink into despair or worry your heart out; you can turn to God’s word, feed on relevant scriptures and speak it to yourself or over your situation. Turn to God’s word. Feed on God’s word.  Speak Out God’s Word.

My son, pay attention to what I say; turn your ear to my words. Do not let them out of your sight, keep them within your heart; for they are life to those who find them and health to one’s whole body. – Proverbs 2:20-22

When your words came, I ate them; they were my joy and my heart’s delight, for I bear your name, LORD God Almighty. – Jeremiah 15:16

For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.- Hebrews 4:12

So shall My Word be which goes out of My mouth; it will not return to me void (useless, without result) without accomplishing what I desire, and without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it”. When we speak God’s Word into a situation that same power goes with it! – Isaiah 55:11

Are you struggling with fear, anxiety and loss? Is the mountain before you looking insurmountable? Are you weighed down by sorrow and grief? Let God’s word produce strength and peace within you as you speak it out in faith.

This list of biblical affirmations is a great way to soak in and digest God’s word into your spirit. God’s word is a doorway that lets in light into your human spirit bringing you the needed hope, comfort and peace in your difficult seasons.
