In times of trouble, we often turn to the Psalms for guidance, comfort, and healing.
The Scriptures are full of wisdom and advice for dealing with difficult situations, and the Psalms are no exception. Many of the Psalms offer healing and hope in times of distress.
For example, Psalm 23 is a well-known song of comfort that reassures us that even when we walk through the darkest valley, God is with us.
Similarly, Psalm 46 reminds us that God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in times of trouble. Whatever our situation may be, we can find encouragement and strength in the words of these poems and hymns.
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
Be gracious to me, O Lord, for I am languishing; heal me, O Lord, for my bones are troubled.
God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way, though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains tremble at its swelling. Selah
He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.
Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless his holy name!
Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits, who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit, who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy, who satisfies you with good so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears and delivers them out of all their troubles. The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.
Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all. He keeps all his bones; not one of them is broken.
Psalm 41: 1-4
Blessed is the one who considers the poor! In the day of trouble the Lord delivers him; the Lord protects him and keeps him alive; he is called blessed in the land; you do not give him up to the will of his enemies.
The Lord sustains him on his sickbed; in his illness you restore him to full health. As for me, I said, “O Lord, be gracious to me; heal me, for I have sinned against you!”
He will cover you with his pinions, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness is a shield and buckler.
When he calls to me, I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will rescue him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him and show him my salvation.
With my mouth I will give great thanks to the Lord; I will praise him in the midst of the throng. For he stands at the right hand of the needy one, to save him from those who condemn his soul to death.
Out of my distress I called on the Lord; the Lord answered me and set me free. The Lord is on my side; I will not fear. What can man do to me?
I will extol you, O Lord, for you have drawn me up and have not let my foes rejoice over me. O Lord my God, I cried to you for help, and you have healed me.
Psalm 31:9, 14-15
Be gracious to me, O Lord, for I am in distress; my eye is wasted from grief; my soul and my body also.
My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
