It’s not always easy being a girl, especially in today’s world! Sometimes it feels like there’s so much pressure from society to do this, or do that, dress like her, eat like them, find your worth in this person, etc.
But even with all the pressure, God’s Word sticks around to guide, encourage, and inspire our daughters to stay godly and remind them that there’s always hope!
That’s why I wanted to share with you 10 powerful verses to encourage your daughters with!
Encouraging Bible Verses to Read With Your Daughters
We want to make sure our daughters are rooted in Christ and hold fast to His Word, so they can learn to withstand the pressures from this world.
My daughter is only 5, but it’s so important to start teaching kids about God from a young age! It’s super helpful to start with short, easy-to-remember Bible verses and build from that solid foundation.
But I truly think reading it to them and with them is the best place to start, because when you do that you are speaking LIFE over them.
We want their first instinct when trials come their way is to turn to God’s Word.
How can they do that if they don’t know His Word?
Exactly!! Let this post serve as a guide for you to encourage your daughters and speak God’s Word over them every day. 🙂
Without further ado, let’s get right into these important Bible verses for our daughters…
10 Encouraging Bible Verses For Girls
Here are 10 powerful Bible verses for young girls to help them stay encouraged and grow closer to God…
1. Deuteronomy 31:6
“Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.” NIV
Sometimes, when situations come up that cause fear, we may want to turn and run the other direction!
And there are situations where that may be what God wants you to do, BUT fear is not from the Lord.
He tells us here that He is always with us, and our daughters can take comfort in that! Whenever they are away from us or in a new situation, they can be reminded that God is with them every step of the way, and they can trust in Him.
2. Psalm 31:24
“Be strong and take heart, all you who hope in the LORD.” NIV
This is not only an easy Bible verse for young girls to memorize because it’s short, but it’s also so powerful!
With few words, our daughters can take such comfort and hope in this passage from scripture!
When we encourage them to place their hope in the Lord, they can then remain optimistic and not let the troubles of the world get them down.
3. Psalm 139:14
“I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” NIV
This verse is such an important one for any Christian to remember, and especially for girls!
In a world where the TV screen tells them what they should look like, dress like, body size, and what makeup to wear, we want to remind them of this verse!
The God of the universe created them EXACTLY the way they are. They need that reminder that they are fearfully and wonderfully made, and His works are GOOD.
This verse can help instill a godly confidence in our daughters and they can trust in this beautiful promise from God!
4. Psalm 119:105
“Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.” NIV
It’s normal to feel a little lost now and again, but this verse helps remind us that God’s Word is not just a “book” that Christians read.
It is God-breathed and inspired by the Holy Spirit – it lights our path and guides us in our daily life!
It’s a very simple verse for younger kids to memorize, and reminds our daughters that God’s way is the only way that can give her true, abundant life!
5. Proverbs 31:20-21
“She extends her hand to the poor, And she stretches out her hands to the needy. She is not afraid of the snow for her household, For all her household are clothed with scarlet.” NIV
This is a beautiful verse to remind our daughters that we can always be helpful and show God’s love to others.
Encourage them to reach out to those less fortunate, in any way they can, and let God shine through them!
6. Jeremiah 29:11
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” NIV
This is my personal favorite verse, and what as really helped me trust in God and lean into Him when I felt lost or uncertain.
By encouraging our daughters with this verse while they are young, it can really help show them that God is always faithful. If they seek Him with their whole heart, God will reveal His plan and purpose for them.
Most importantly, He LOVES them and WANTS them to prosper according to His purposes.
This is especially great as they enter their teen and college-age years, because this is when our children enter a crossroads – are they going to really make Jesus Lord and follow Him (that is the hope) and trust in His plan and purpose?
That’s why instilling godly habits in them is so important, one being memorizing these encouraging scriptures!
7. Song of Songs 4:7
“You are altogether beautiful, my darling; there is no flaw in you.” NIV
God makes no mistakes!!
Encourage your daughters that they can be wonderfully and undeniably themselves because they were molded by the hands of the Lord Himself.
They can repeat this biblical affirmation every day:
I am beautiful, unique, and flawless. I am a child of God, created the way He wanted me to be.
Remind them that they are perfect in the eyes of the Lord; a masterpiece sculpted by the best artist of all time. There’s no doubt in His creation!
8. 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.” NIV
Unfortunately, our kids are starting to feel the burdens and weight this world carries at a younger age than ever before.
That’s why it’s so important for them to know that God is the only place they can find true rest!
And not only will they find it, but He is ready and waiting to take our daughter’s burdens and replace them with His light, easy, and comforting yoke.
9. John 14:27
“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” NIV
This is another one of our family’s favorite verses because God promises us something we are always searching for, aren’t we?
Not just any peace, but the peace that ONLY comes from God. He can help calm the fears and uncertainties we face in this world, and encourage our daughters to always seek HIS peace.
10. 1 Timothy 4:12
“Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, and purity.” NIV
Of course, we had to end with this wonderful verse for kids! It’s definitely a verse that is repeated a lot, but holds such power for our daughters and all the youth of today.
God created them with a purpose, plan, and mission for His purposes.
It’s so important for us to train them up in the Lord, remind them that they can do great things for Him, and be an example for even younger kids as well!
We just welcomed a new niece in our family, and I talked with my daughter (who is almost 5) about being a role model for her. This verse encouraged her that she isn’t too young to be used in the kingdom of God!
