The fact that we are Christians does not mean everything would be all rosy for us. We are not designed to be excluded from hardship and depression but we are prepared not to be overwhelmed by them. That is why Jesus said; “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” – John 16:33 KJV
Whether you are going through a financial crisis, lost your job, experiencing heartbreak, or just frustrated with the economic and political state of Nigeria, here are some Bible Verses to console yourself:
1. Matthew 6:31-34 (King James Version)
31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.
33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

And established my steps.
9. Romans 8:38-39 (New Revised Standard Version, NRSV)
