In a year many would like to forget, a record number of people are battling fear with faith by turning to God’s Word as a source of encouragement and hope.
The popular Bible app YouVersion has revealed that Bible searches, specifically for words such as fear, healing, and peace, increased substantially this year.
Isaiah 41:10 was ranked as the most searched, read, and bookmarked verse on the app.
The verse reads, “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.”
Christianity Today reports, YouVersion saw an uptick in overall searches by 80 per cent, totalling 600 million searches worldwide this year.
This was the highest level of global Bible engagement in the app’s history.
