Bible verse for comfort when you are sick

Philip Kosloski - published on 01/14/22

When you are struggling with your illness, read this Bible verse from Isaiah to give yourself comfort.

Sometimes when we get sick, we can feel alone and isolated, especially if that illness requires a time of quarantine. It’s never easy, and those feelings of isolation can often lead to despair.

We forget that God is with us and will restore us to health. He alone can bring us back from our lowest points.

Here is a short Bible verse from the book of Isaiah that reminds us of these simple facts and gives us comfort in our sickness.

Fear not, for I am with you,
    be not dismayed, for I am your God;
I will strengthen you, I will help you,
    I will uphold you with my victorious right hand.

Isaiah 41:10
