When I’m in trouble, where should I go first for comfort?
Psalm 119:52; 2 Thessalonians 2:16-17
Since God is our ultimate comfort, his Word is our greatest resource for comfort. God’s Word is as close as our fingertips, and God himself is as close as our whispered prayer.
How does God give us comfort?
Psalm 23:4; Matthew 5:4
Comfort when we grieve.
Comfort when we are discouraged.
Exodus 14:13; Psalm 145:14
Comfort when we are overwhelmed.
John 16:33; 1 Peter 5:7
Comfort when we are persecuted.
I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.”
Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about what happens to you.
Comfort when we are rejected.
Comfort in the midst of conflict.
Comfort when we are afraid.
Comfort when we are ill.
Comfort when we wonder about our plans for the future.
How can we comfort others?
2 Corinthians 1:3-4
The comforted becomes the comforter. That is the role God has for us. As he comforts us in our time of trouble, so we comfort others.
@Promise from God: Nahum 1:7
The Lord is good. When trouble comes, he is a strong refuge. And he knows everyone who trusts in him.
