Giving biblical encouragement to men or a special man in your life on his birthday is a fantastic way to affirm the will of God for his life.
But finding the best verses might be time-consuming at times.
As such, I have put together a list of the best encouraging scriptures for men celebrating birthdays.
That said if you are in a rush and just looking for a good birthday bible verse for men. Numbers 6:24-26, Philippians 1:6, 3 John 1:2, and many other Bible verses for birthdays will encourage and inspire men on their special day.
A “Happy Birthday” greeting can mean much to men who generally don’t expect much on their birthdays.
Birthday wishes are the perfect opportunity to declare the word over that Godly man in your life, whether it’s your father, son, brother, in-laws, cousins, pastor, professor, friend, or whoever that man is celebrating his birthday.
These scriptures are perfect to print on birthday cards and you can even print the comments that I’ve added below the scriptures.
You don’t even need to edit the comments because they are just the type of encouragement any man would love to hear on his birthday.
The following verses are taken from the English Standard Version, King James Version, and New International Version of the Bible.
1. 3 John 1:2
“Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.”
Wishing You Good Health
We’ll start our countdown of the most encouraging scriptures for men on birthdays from the book of 3 John 1:2.

2. Psalm 118:17
“I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the LORD.”

7. 1 Chronicles 16:34

11. James 4:4
“But he gives us more grace. That is why Scripture says: “God opposes the proud but shows favor to the humble.”

12. Proverbs 18:24
“A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.”
You are a loyal man to God, your family, and all those that depend on you daily.
Continue to be loyal and responsible. God will bless you with the strength to sustain your loyalty to Him and others that matter.
13. Philippians 1:6
“Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.”
You are Confident, and I am confident too.

You are one year older today, and God is still perfecting the good work He had started in you.
Do not give up; I know that you are a confident man, and I am confident that God will finish the work He has started in you.
Even Philippians 1:6 is confident that God who started the work in you will finish it.
14. Mark 11:22-24
“And Jesus answered them, “Have faith in God. Truly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, it will be done for him. Therefore, I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.”
I Pray that You Grow in Faith to Move Mountains
May you increase in faith so that you can speak to any mountain in your life that is blocking you from receiving the promises of God.
