10 Bible Verses to Keep in Front of You throughout the Day

Let’s face it—with all the hard and scary stuff going on around us, we may find ourselves waking up anxious and discouraged and going to bed the same way. As bad as that is, it also puts us at risk of damaging our witness for Christ in our day-to-day dealings with others. That’s because, as humans, we often allow our feelings to dictate most of our actions.

The Bible says that as Christians, we must hide His Word in our hearts that we might not sin against Him. Even if we start our day with prayer and devotion, we still need His Word to be ever-present throughout the rest of our day, so that we may walk in Christ-like faith and strength. Feelings come and go, change at the drop of a hat. But His Word never changes. His Word is Truth.

As His followers, we need to build a repertoire of Truth—memorized Scripture to recall when needed. However, even those of us who have memorized several Scriptures still struggle recalling them during times of upset and stress. A good way to remedy this is to surround ourselves with strategically placed Scriptures.

When we purposefully surround ourselves with God’s Word throughout our day, every day, things go a little smoother, and a few other things happen as well. His word: RENEWS, REMINDS, RESISTS.

I’ve compiled a list of 10 of my favorite Scriptures and structured them with morning, noon, and night in mind. Your morning can start with a verse from the Book of Psalms. You’ll fight off anxiety by rejoicing in the day He’s made. You’ll draw strength from His Word as you’re reminded of how He’d have you interact with others as you move go throughout your day. You’ll close out your day of surrounding yourself with Scripture by tucking yourself into bed with a couple of verses from Philippians, as you make your requests known to Him and rest in His peace. I hope you’ll place these 10 powerful Scriptures in strategic places in your day-to-day life.
