5 Inspiring Bible Verses To Fight Off Those Monday Morning Blues

It's Monday. Again. The relentless repeat of the working week can become wearisome, can't it? Maybe you awoke to a whirring of anxiety over your job, a family situation, or a lack of spiritual fervour. But don't worry. The Lord can replace that tiredness with passion and zeal for his name, and the scriptures can help us with this. We must look to him, even in the grey-ness of Monday morning. Amy Green at Crosswalk highlights 5 inspiring Bible verses that will help you do this! 

1. Isaiah 40:28-29
“Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.”

Promise: We can count on God’s unchangeable faithfulness even at our weakest times. When we try to depend on our own strength, we’ll only be frustrated. Jesus is the source of true strength, hope, and rest."

2. Joshua 1:9
“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”

Promise: There is no task so daunting that we can’t face it with the Holy Spirit within us."

3. 2 Corinthians 12:9
“But he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.”

Promise: We learn to trust God during the hardest days, and it’s also during those times that we demonstrate the power of the gospel to everyone around us. When we are weak, he is strong."

4. 1 Corinthians 15:58
“Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.”

Promise: Even when we don’t see the results of what we’re doing, God is always at work. He can give us the strength for the mundane tasks of life."

5. Philippians 4:5b-6
“The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.”

Promise: The reason we don’t have to fear is because God is near us and for us. We have constant access to him through prayer."

Have no fear on this Monday morning! Grab hold of the promises of God and go in His strength alone. Amen!
