It’s a fact.
The Bible is the world’s best-selling and most widely distributed book. Its 31,102 verses continue to inspire and encourage people through difficult times.
Based on the Bible verse lists compiled and published by BibleGateway.com, BibleStudyTools.com, and YouVersion.com, here are the seven most popular encouraging Bible verses, taken from the New King James Version (NKJV):
“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.”
If there’s anything we need right now, it’s hope.
Bad news is everywhere. It underscores the fact that we are living in dangerous times. No place is totally safe or peaceful any longer.
We ask: Will we ever return to a time when we can walk the streets without fear of being bombed, kidnapped, shot, or raped? Do we really have a future?
This verse is so encouraging because it shows us that God has good plans for us....
