Our Creator gave us many encouraging Bible verses because He knew we would need encouragement for a number of reasons; whether we get discouraged, depressed or simply embarking on a new path or challenge, humans need encouragement of some sort.
We need to know about such biblical verses as we may need them ourselves when we are down, or to encourage other people, specially our loved ones.
We can use encouraging Bible verses in a letter, a card, an email or even a text message!
When do people need encouragement? At all times!
People have family problems, broken relationships (or on the verge of being broken), tough situation at work. We really have every type of trial in our lives!
