Here are 33 powerful encouraging bible verses for men. On this Christian journey, you will get weak spiritually, you will feel discouraged and sometimes you will feel like giving up and forget about a relationship with God.
As a man of God myself I know what it is like to feel discouraged; so I put together these encouraging Bible verses for men to help you to continue to trust God and have faith in Him.
But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. Matthew 4:4 (KJV)
The main reason for writing this article with these encouraging Bible verses for men especially, is because I know that even though men need the physical bread that strengthens the flesh; we need the spiritual bread even more, because the spiritual man also need to be strengthened.
The physical food that mankind consumed on a daily basis, cannot give us hope and an assurance of eternal rest, only the spiritual food i.e. the word of God can.
After Jesus completed His 40 days and forty nights of fasting and prayer, he was physically hungry, so satan used the opportunity to tempt Him into turn stones into bread.
Jesus knowing exactly what he was up to, rebuked him even in His physical hunger; and told him that nothing was as important for living as the word of God.
Most men are so bound to a glutinous spirit, that you cannot even go a few hours without eating.
There is a powerful connection between your spirit and God's Spirit that takes place when you fast, pray and study the word of God.
The plan of the enemy was to make Jesus break the fast, and therefore give the flesh and the devil exactly what they wanted; but Jesus was not intimidated by the devil's trick, He knew that the devil is the father of all lies.
If you are fasting today and you are struggling to stay away from food, remember that it is a test of your dedication, commitment and faithfulness to God.
Remember also that the word of God is your spiritual food and it is very important that you feast upon it especially while on a fast.
Jesus is the greatest example of this experience, so be strong and stand up against the wiles of the devil.
Remember that the salvation of your soul is more important than the pleasures that you get from satisfying the flesh.
Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? Matthew 6:30 (KJV)
This encouraging Bible verse is telling us that God is our provider and if He provided for the trees, the birds flying in the sky, the fishes in the seas and every creeping thing upon the face of the earth, He will provide for you too.
You are God's children, and there are many benefits that come with that privilege.
God uses the benefits and divine provision for the grass of the field as a great example of HIS capability to provide for us.
The grass of the field is vulnerable in the sense that it cannot help itself.
Yet God provides a very special clothing for those grass, so that everything that they need to survive is made available at their disposal.
Even though He knows that they will soon be cut down and cast into the fire at the appointed time.
Now, when it comes to you and myself as HIS children, the clothing provision is even more advanced.
Even though we are compared to the grass in terms of being here today and gone tomorrow, which is just a birth and death situation because everybody has to die.
However, the thing that made us so special, is the privilege that we were created in His image and His likeness.
There is no greater joy than knowing that you were not created in the image of a
or monkey 🐒
You were created in the image of God Almighty Himself.
So it is very important that you understand that you are a Kingdom citizen, and an image of God. Therefore God has a responsibility to multiply whatever you put your hands to ensure that you are well clothed and nurtured with divine blessings and favors.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. Philippians 4:6
As you faithfully go through these encouraging Bible verses for men, I pray for you that the LORD will give you the grace to not be anxious about anything, but to patiently and faithfully wait on Him to answer your prayers.
Anxiousness does not work with God, either you have faith in Him or you do not.
When you pray to God about something, you need to have faith that your request will be granted.
While you are waiting on God, give Him thanks and praise for what He is about to do.
Because, when the praises go up, the blessings come down.
Today as you go to your respective churches, please keep your mind on Christ.
And worship GOD in spirit and in truth because God is a spirit.
I rebuke every spirit of anxiousness and cancel every demon of unbelief from out of your your life in JESUS name.

Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:
1 Peter 5:6 (KJV)
Jesus humbled Himself to the death of the cross.
He is the example that we ought to follow everyday.
God resists the proud but gives grace to the humble.
The main reason why God hates pride is because it exalts the flesh which means that it does not bring Him Glory.
When something does not bring God glory it means that the devil is at work among you.
As a Christian, Humility will be the greatest achievement in your walk with the LORD.
It takes Humility to walk before God with a perfect heart.
It takes Humility to walk in the spirit and not fulfil the lust of the flesh.
It takes Humility to trust GOD and take Him at His words.
It takes Humility to love and do good to those who are full of pride.
Humble yourself and take up your cross daily and follow after the example of Christ.
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: 1 Peter 5:8 (KJV)
Be sober, don't become intoxicated with wine and drunkenness because you need a sober and clear mind to truly serve God.
You also need to be vigilant, vigilant means to be: (watchful) alert, aware, circumspect, and observant.
Your adversary the devil is after your soul, just like a lion hunts for its food.
Therefore Paul is encouraging us to be watchful, alert and observant, because if we are careless and unfocused the devil will devour us.
Let us lay aside every weight of sin because sin will easily distract us from the way of the LORD and put us in a vulnerable spot.

You cannot neglect the way of the LORD and expect to inherit God's blessings.
God's blessings come with condition and the condition to seek first the kingdom of God and seek to be perfected in His righteousness.

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14 (KJV)

If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. John 15:7 (KJV)
One of the main reasons why I took the time to write this article on these encouraging Bible verses for men, is because God dropped it in my spirit to encourage men to abide in Him.
The best decision that you could make in this life, is the decision to abide in God.

Abide in His straight and narrow path.
Abide in the spirit and don't fulfil the lust of the flesh.

Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also. John 15:20 (KJV)
One valuable lesson that I have learnt while putting together these encouraging Bible verses for men is this:
As followers of the LORD Jesus Christ and believers in the word of God, you should not expect to be treated differently than how they treated your LORD.
If they hated the LORD Jesus Christ, they will also hate you His follower.
If they killed Him because of His determination to complete God's assignment; they will kill you too if you are determined to do God's work and walk before Him with a perfect heart.
For this reason, the Bible said that the man who made up his mind to live godly, will suffer persecutions.
For this reason, let us be strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might, because if we suffer for the sake of Christ, we will reap the reward of reigning Him after the tribulation.

But many that are first shall be last; and the last shall be first. Matthew 19:30 (KJV)
How long you have been a Christian is not what is going to save your soul.
Sometimes the Christians who have been in the church for many years are not bringing glory to God.
Sometimes it is the ones who just got saved who are really doing their best to walk before God with a perfect heart.
For this reason the Scripture said that many who are last shall be first and many who are first shall be last.
So it doesn't matter how long you have been going to church my friends.
