YouVersion's Most Popular Bible Verse Of 2018 Is One We Desperately Need To Hear Right Now

Jesus warned the devil that man can't live by bread alone, but by every word from the mouth of God, and it's the word of God that empowers us to resist with that same boldness!

Apps like YouVersion likewise empower every Christian by literally putting a Bible in the pocket of everyone who has the app on their phone.

Along with presenting users with Scripture in many different languages and translations, YouVersion offers reading plans, devotionals, audio and video supplements, a social sharing element, and several other incredible features for the modern Christian to engage with God's living, eternal Word. 

Every year, YouVersion releases the most popular Bible verse on their platform. In other words, the verse is the one most highlighted, bookmarked, and shared among the app's 350 million users.

The verse in question?

“Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.” Isaiah 41:10

The verse's popularity, according to a statement by YouVersion founder Bobby Gruenewald, demonstrates that "people worldwide are continuing to turn to the Bible in search of comfort, encouragement, and hope."

The world around us is utterly dark and lost without the light of Jesus. While most people use their smartphones for unending selfies, fruitless debates on social media, and various games and apps to kill time, YouVersion and similar faith-based apps are a beacon of God's light. 

God's word is always perfect and always true, and Isaiah 41:10 is as timely a message for us today as it was when it was first penned. Praise the Lord for preserving his word!
