This article is going to be short and sweet because when it comes to combating loneliness, you don’t really need to know what I think or what I have to say. No, you need to go straight to the source…the Bible.
These encouraging Bible verses are perfect for when you’re feeling lonely. Whether you’re single and feeling unloved or feeling hopeless and depressed, these verses will lift you up and remind you that you are loved by God. You are not alone, and you will never be alone.
So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
No one will be able to stand against you all the days of your life. As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you.
Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me;
your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
Keep on loving one another as brothers and sisters. Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it. Continue to remember those in prison as if you were together with them in prison, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.
Though my father and mother forsake me, the Lord will receive me.
The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.
The Lord is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and rich in love.
He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.
“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.”
God’s Word is filled with hope, encouragement, comfort, strength and wisdom. It is there for the taking. It is true. It is real. It is for you.
