The 51 Most Positive Bible Verses

By David Small •  Updated: 05/28/21 •  12 min read

Positive bible verses will encourage you to think positively. To be positive is to be optimistic – an attitude towards humans that considers them liable to a positive global solution, which results in an active and confident general position.

On the other hand, thinking negatively is very similar to pessimism, which leads the individual to face everything on the negative side, to expect everything worse.

God accompanies the good Christian at all times. That is why he is never alone and must always be positive. The obstacles of life must be overcome by placing trust in God and taking care not to fall into the temptation of sin.

Below are some positive bible verses that encourage positive thinking.

Our words have a lot of power. By his word, God created everything that exists and his words are always fulfilled. God’s word is alive and full of power. Jesus is the Word of God.

Fill your heart and mind with the Word of God.

Choose faith today so that you can defeat all fear and live in the freedom that Christ has for you.
