Bible Verses for the sick and dying
Deuteronomy 7:15 – God will take away sickness
And the Lord will take away from you all sickness, and none of the evil diseases of Egypt, which you knew, will he inflict on you, but he will lay them on all who hate you.
You shall serve the Lord your God, and he will bless your bread and your water, and I will take sickness away from among you.
Here are the blessings from God as stated in this scripture. God will accomplish these things through your service to Him. These are the ancillary advantages of serving God. He assures you that He will care for and treat your illness since He can do everything. God only asks that we worship and serve Him in spirit and truth.
Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all.
The opening verse of Psalm 34:19 serves as a sobering reminder that to be sanctified, living for righteousness entails suffering, sickness, heartbreak, and grief.
This verse is beautiful because it does more than only forewarn us of the upcoming difficulties and challenges we’ll encounter as we live out our trust in Christ. Instead, it assures us that the Lord will step in amid our tribulations and provide for our needs. As long as these things happen in God’s name, our pain will continue, but God will draw nearer to us and serve as our source of strength as we navigate through.
He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
The Lord is a reliable and gracious God who gives strength to the weak and rest to the weary, so this verse brings us a great deal of comfort and encouragement. “Those who wait on the Lord shall regain their strength,” he has promised, “they shall soar up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.” And He is faithful in fulfilling his promises.
2 Corinthians 12:9
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.
2 Corinthians 12:9
What an excellent illustration of God’s grace and the strength of Christ, which is made perfect in our frailties. We have God’s full assurance that His grace is sufficient for any eventualities that may come our way, regardless of what you and I are facing or the tests and trials we may be obliged to endure.
So that the power of Christ can rest upon us, to the glory of His name, may we, like Paul, be able to boast even more gladly in our limitations and frailty. Amen!
Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
The world has taught us that we are more than capable of managing anything that comes our way, but when you have complete faith in God, you remove any uncertainty. Because you are confident that He is always right and won’t lie to you, you trust what He says.
God knows what lies ahead of you and what you can’t see since He sees the more excellent picture. In good times and bad, have faith in God. You may depend on the truth and accuracy of God’s word. He is dependable and consistently keeps his promises.
Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
We need not be afraid because the Lord has promised to strengthen those who belong to Him. When Jesus tells the apostle Paul, “My grace is sufficient for thee,” He emphasizes that “my strength is made perfect in weakness.”
loving father, I know that fear has occasionally taken the place of trust in my heart, but why should I fear when You have repeatedly taught me not to worry? Thank You for Your assurance that You will always be by my side and support me during my sickness. Thank you, Lord
For I will restore health to you, and your wounds I will heal, declares the Lord, because they have called you an outcast: ‘It is Zion, for whom no one cares!’
This verse serves as a reminder that God won’t abandon you. To answer our need for bodily healing, His word is living and effective. This text explains what it means in the Bible to be restored, healed, and whole.
Our hearts might be bothered by a wounded body and a broken spirit. However, God’s wholeness will always be seen despite our brokenness.
The Lord is close to the brokenhearted; he rescues those whose spirits are crushed.
All of God’s people can and will experience closeness from Him as they navigate life’s many challenges. He is always with grieving individuals and is their Savior when their spirits are low. He came in the Person of the Lord Jesus Christ to heal the hurting and to provide redemption for all who put their faith in Him.
Jesus told her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Anyone who believes in me will live, even after dying. Everyone who lives in me and believes in me will never ever die.
Everything in a Christian’s life has a purpose, and God uses every experience—good or bad—for their spiritual development and long-term advantage. During our sojourn on earth, we are called to mature in the faith and grow in grace.. and God takes all life circumstances as an opportunity to develop our trust in Him so that we may discover a little more of His gracious character.
“I am the resurrection and life….”
Christ can shift our attention from a faithful God to an incarnate God who is constantly present in the details of our daily life. He is the God of today’s promises and the One at our side through all of life’s changing circumstances.
I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid.
Christ has given us the gift of peace, peace to the sick, the dying, and those suffering. As you rest, stay, and live in Christ’s great, incredible peace—may the God of peace be with you.
Thank You, Dear Father, that I am at peace with You, now Your child, and have Your perfect peace within me. Thank You, Father, for sending me Christ, my beautiful peace whose Spirit abides within me eternally. May I spread His great calm to everyone I encounter today? I ask in His name, Amen.
Bible verses for the sick and suffering
Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”
We shall encounter more difficulties and challenges as we move through life. The Lord has promised, “I will never leave you nor forsake You, even to the consummation of the age,” so we must put on Christ and remain in Him to be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power. This will enable us to face even the most significant challenges with confidence that God is with us.
I’m grateful to You, Dear Father, for encouraging me to be strong and courageous in my sickness and suffering. I ask for your assistance in remaining in Christ, knowing His grace is sufficient for all life’s challenges, in the name of Jesus, Amen.
Nevertheless, I will bring health and healing to it; I will heal my people and will let them enjoy abundant peace and security.
We have all endured considerable changes in our lives, and many of us are still dealing with the strains and hardships of those changes. We should be encouraged in these trying times by the fact that the Lord has always been dependable in bringing about restoration and in pursuing His people to bring them comfort, safety, and peace, for God continually strives to fulfill His purposes.
Surely he has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his stripes we are healed.
Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.
Jesus is the source of life and the light which has entered the world to give hope to everyone who will put their faith in Him for redemption, and He extends the invitation to “COME” to anybody who so desires. Christ is the only one who can comfort the hurting and remove the strangling bonds of sin that weigh down the weary soul.
He is the only one with the power to free the captive from the crushing weight of sin, heal the brokenhearted, and save the perishing. And anybody who will believe in His name is welcome to accept His offer. Whoever will come can freely receive the rest He offers as God’s gift of grace.
3 John 1:2
“Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.”3 John 1:2
Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing praise. Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven.
There is a great need for prayer and intercession in this hurting world, and there is ample reason to praise and rejoice in God’s merciful provision.
Our response to suffering should be intense prayer and fervent pleading, whilst our response to Christ’s gracious provision should be one of rejoicing and joy. Therefore, it is unsurprising when James asks, “Are there any among you who are in pain? He then needs to pray! Is anyone happy? He is to laud himself!”
Let us make praying to the Lord a duty and a delight in every situation of life, especially in times of illness and pain.
