Emotional/Mental Healing Scriptures
All Bible references are from The Amplified Bible.
Is there something in your past or present that is causing problems with your emotions or thoughts? If we’re honest, all of us would admit there are times when we struggle with wrong thoughts and the unhealthy emotions they create. Sometimes this can even lead to severe depression or other serious ongoing conditions that keep us from being emotionally and mentally whole.
I’ve experienced issues like these in my own life as a result of abusive, toxic relationships. But the power of God’s love and His words have healed so many emotional wounds within me. . .and I just felt a leading to share these with you. I want you to stop whatever you are doing and allow these scriptures to really sink in…read them out loud as part of your personal meditation/prayer time. 🙏🏽 I pray that God heals your emotional wounds today. ❤🙌🏽
1 Peter 5:7
Therefore humble yourselves [demote, lower yourselves in your own estimation] under the mighty hand of God, that in due time He may exalt you, Casting the whole of your care [all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully.
He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds [curing their pains and their sorrows].
Do not fret or have any anxiety about anything, but in every circumstance and in everything, by prayer and petition (definite requests), with thanksgiving, continue to make your wants known to God. And God’s peace [shall be yours, that tranquil state of a soul assured of its salvation through Christ, and so fearing nothing from God and being content with its earthly lot of whatever sort that is, that peace] which transcends all understanding shall garrison and mount guard over your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
Why are you cast down, O my inner self? And why should you moan over me and be disquieted within me? Hope in God and wait expectantly for Him, for I shall yet praise Him, my Help and my God.
You have turned my mourning into dancing for me; You have put off my sackcloth and girded me with gladness.
The Lord is close to those who are of a broken heart and saves such as are crushed with sorrow for sin and are humbly and thoroughly penitent.
This is my comfort and consolation in my affliction: that Your word has revived me and given me life.
Be strong, courageous, and firm; fear not nor be in terror before them, for it is the Lord your God Who goes with you; He will not fail you or forsake you.
2 Timothy 1:7
For God did not give us a spirit of timidity (of cowardice, of craven and cringing and fawning fear), but [He has given us a spirit] of power and of love and of calm and well-balanced mind and discipline and self-control.
And be constantly renewed in the spirit of your mind [having a fresh mental and spiritual attitude], and put on the new nature (the regenerate self) created in God’s image, [Godlike] in true righteousness and holiness.
You will guard him and keep him in perfect and constant peace whose mind [both its inclination and its character] is stayed on You, because he commits himself to You, leans on You, and hopes confidently in You.
Confession for emotional/mental healing: “I have peace, power, love and a calm and well-balanced mind because I trust God. I don’t worry about anything, instead, I pray about everything and God blesses me by giving me His answers, His peace.”
