5 Bible verses to help you in being healed from traumatic events

We live in a broken world where bad things can happen even to godly people – accidents, loss, failure, abuse, or even death. But despite all of these things, we can still hope in Jesus Christ, knowing that He has overcome our pain and trauma. Only He can heal us of any emotional and psychological hurt.

 

In John 16:33, Jesus told His disciples that we will face trials. The sins and brokenness of this world have brought about curses and tragedies that we will most probably face. But God also promises us freedom from the trauma and hurt that we may face in this present age.

His mercies are new every morning, and He brings healing not just to the physical body, but also to our minds and souls. (in bigger font, highlight this liner) Jehovah Rapha — the Lord who heals — will deliver us out of any brokenness and make us whole again.

 

Here are 5 encouraging Bible verses that we hope will help you today. 

 

Psalm 91:4-6 TPT 
His massive arms are wrapped around you, protecting you. You can run under His covering of majesty and hide. His arms of faithfulness are a shield keeping you from harm. You will never worry about an attack of demonic forces at night nor have to fear a spirit of darkness coming against you. Don't fear a thing! Whether by night or by day, demonic danger will not trouble you, nor will the powers of evil be launched against you. 

 

Isaiah 41:10 TPT 
Do not yield to fear, for I am always near. Never turn your gaze from me, for I am your faithful God. I will infuse you with My strength and help you in every situation. I will hold you firmly with my victorious right hand. 

 

Lamentations 3:22-24 MSG 
God's loyal love couldn't have run out, His merciful love couldn't have dried up. They're created new every morning. How great Your faithfulness! I'm sticking with God (I say it over and over). He's all I've got left.

 

Romans 8:26-28 MSG 
Meanwhile, the moment we get tired in the waiting, God's Spirit is right alongside helping us along. If we don't know how or what to pray, it doesn't matter. He does our praying in and for us, making our prayer out of our wordless sighs, our aching groans. He knows us far better than we know ourselves, knows our pregnant condition, and keeps us present before God. That's why we can be so sure that every detail in our lives of love for God is worked into something good.

 

Philippians 3:13-14 TPT  
I don't depend on my own strength to accomplish this; however I do have one compelling focus: I forget all of the past as I fasten my heart to the future instead. I run straight for the divine invitation of reaching the heavenly goal and gaining the victory-prize through the anointing of Jesus.

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose.

Romans 8:28 NIV
