One of the most memorable quotes from the Bible is John 3:16. It is easy to remember, yet it has a powerful message.

Another short verse that is quite inspirational is this one found in 1 Corinthians.

Both of these messages focus on love and can be applied to many situations in life and to provide comfort.
It is when we need it most that strength has a way of being the one thing we need in times of strife. These Bible verses focus on having that strength and are spoken with few words, but plenty of powerful motivation.
I can do all things through him who strengthens me.
For the Lord your God is he who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies, to give you the victory.
Of course, one of the most well-known quotes in the Bible is this one, and it has the ability to bring peace, no matter what date in time it is.
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
Faith is not always easy to come by but it is what we believe and trust. These Bible verses on faith can be a great comfort when you need it the most.
2 Corinthians 5:7
For we walk by faith, not by sight.
1 Peter 1:8-9
Though you have not seen him, you love him. Though you do not now see him, you believe in him and rejoice with joy that is inexpressible and filled with glory, obtaining the outcome of your faith, the salvation of your souls.
This one will give you strength when you are surrounded by those that cannot seem to believe in what you have faith in.
