11 Bible Verses to Heal Your Emotional Wound

Bible Verses to Heal Your Emotional Wound

The Bible is full of healing scriptures that will help you to mend your emotional wounds.

These verses are perfect for anyone who has experienced betrayal, rejection, stress, or just needs some encouragement.

The word of God has an amazing way of turning our negative situations into positive ones.

The more you read the Bible and allow it to speak directly to your soul, the easier it will be for you to see that pain is only temporary.

Let’s take a look at some powerful scriptures that can help mend your emotional wound:

1. Matthew 11:28-30

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”

The good news is: Jesus calls you to come to Him when you are tired, weary, and burdened.

He promises that if you rest in Him, He will give you the strength you need to continue your journey forward.

You may have heard this verse before, but I encourage you not just read over it.

Take the time to read it slowly, and allow God to speak directly to your heart!

2. Psalm 147:3

“He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.”

The good news is: the Lord promises to mend your broken heart by comforting you and binding up the wounds of betrayal that have been inflicted upon you.

You may not understand why someone has treated you this way, but it’s important that you remember God knows everything about all of us!

Give it time and allow God to heal you.

Just as a good doctor would never give up on performing surgery until he has healed his patient, you should continue praying and believing that God will restore your joy.

3. 1 Peter 2:24

“He himself bore our sins” in his body on the cross so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; “by his wounds, you have been healed.”

The good news is: Jesus loves you so much that He died on the cross to take away your sins.

You are loved by God, and nothing can ever change that fact!

This means no matter what anyone has said or done to you in the past, forgive them, and move on.

The simple truth is, you don’t have to allow the negative moments of your life to define who you are!

Always remember: Jesus died on the cross to set you free from your past and heal all of your emotional wounds and sickness.

4. Jeremiah 17:14

“Heal me, Lord, and I will be healed; save me, and I will be saved, for you are the one I praise.”

The good news is: no matter how depressed you are, God can heal you if you trust God, who is our healer.

This verse also reminds me of how important it is not just to pray but to truly worship God through praise even when we feel like nothing will ever change.

Jesus is always there for you, no matter how many times you fall down. He will pick you up and heal your wounds.

I will recommend that you pray with this verse at least five to ten times each day.

Pray and trust that God will do it!

5. Psalm 34:17-20

“When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears and delivers them out of all their troubles. The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all. He keeps all his bones; not one of them is broken.”

The good news is: this scripture is so encouraging when you are hurting because it reminds us that God hears our cries for help.

When you feel like nobody is listening or cares about your pain, this verse reassures you that the Lord knows exactly what you are going through and He will deliver in any way possible.

Another thing I love about these verses is how David talks about being near to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.

This is such a beautiful picture of how God draws near when we need Him most.

When David says, “Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but The Lord delivers him out of them all,” I feel like this is a reassurance that no matter the adversity you are facing, God will deliver you from it.

6. 1 Peter 5:7

“Casting all your anxiety on Him, because he cares for you.”

The good news is: when you feel like your anxieties are controlling your life when everything is too much to handle- remember that God knows exactly how it feels.

He made us, and he understands us better than anyone else ever could.

This means that in the midst of your anxieties, you can cast them all on him because he cares for us.

In fact, when I am anxiously worrying about something, I find it helpful to remind myself that my anxieties are nothing before God.

He is so much bigger than them- and that helps me to feel better.

7. Matthew 10:31

“So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.”

The good news is: we are valuable and loved by God.

It’s so important to remember how special we truly are in the eyes of our Heavenly Father, who plans for each one of us a very specific and unique role on this earth.

This verse is most powerful when you’re feeling down because it reminds you that your value doesn’t come from what others think of you.

You are special because God made you and He doesn’t make mistakes!

This scripture is also a great reminder that you don’t have to be afraid, even when you feel like the world has turned against you.

You can lean on our Father in Heaven for comfort and strength.

He is always by our side, ready to help us in any way we need!

In short, God cares about you. He knows your struggles and how to heal you.

8. Deuteronomy 31:8

“The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”

The good news is: God is always with us.

When we are feeling uncertain about life, this verse gives us hope and reassurance that no matter what happens in our lives, He will never leave or forsake us.

This scripture also tells me not to be afraid of what is ahead because God will always be with me.

9. Isaiah 41:10

“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

The good news is: God will protect you and He will not forsake you.

This verse tells you that no matter how dark your world may seem now, you should have nothing to fear because God is with you- holding your hand through it all!

When life gets too hard or overwhelming, this scripture reminds you of one very important thing: God is with you.

10. Isaiah 43:2

“When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.”

The good news is: God will always protect you, no matter your circumstances.

All you need to do is to ask God for help!

11. Romans 15:13

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”

The good news is: you can have hope in God even when everything seems hopeless because He is the one who gives us joy and peace.

The first step to healing is finding hope in God. Once you have that, everything else will fall into place.


After reading this verse, I encourage you to take the time to thank God for loving you when no one else does!

There is nothing more rewarding than giving Him all of our burdens because He loves us unconditionally.

When we choose to give our burdens and hurts over to Him, He will work in miraculous ways!

You may feel like you’re the only one who is hurting.  But this isn’t true at all!

God knows exactly how you are feeling right now because He has felt every pain that we have ever experienced since time began.  

He understands your hurt, and He is working to mend it!

God sees you. God knows you. And most importantly, God loves you with the perfect love of His Son Jesus Christ!
