9 Essential Bible quotes for when you need clarity



Cerith Gardiner - published on 10/09/23

Look to these words from Scripture when you can't think straight through all the chaos of life.

The demands of modern life often strip away the simplicity our older generations enjoyed in life. Between the technological advances that have left most of us attached to our phones a little too much, and taking our kids to their numerous activities and appointments, it’s no wonder that our minds can’t always think straight.

The problem is that when our heads are filled to the brim, we often lose our sense of reason and logic, and spiral into even more confusion. And this is when we need to take a step back, breathe, and look elsewhere for clarity in our lives. Thankfully, as Christians, the Bible can provide us with the perfect solution to finding this lucidity.

If you take a look at these quotes below, you’ll not only be able to surrender to God leading you through any confusion you may be experiencing, but to focus your mind on improving your relationship with God and that is where you’ll find the ultimate clarity you truly need.
