Sometimes we need Psalms and Bible Verses for Comfort in our lives. The Bible is filled with verses that are meant to give us comfort and peace.
God knew that we would experience times where we would be in need of comfort and assurance.
King David himself found comfort and solace in God and His word. In Psalm 119:50 he says, “This is my comfort in my affliction, for Your word has given me life.”
God’s word gives life to those who are weary.
It brings comfort to those who are hurting. It brings peace to those who are worried, and fearful.
Whether you have experienced a tragedy, you are struggling with uncertainty, or you simply need a hope to cling to.
The word of God is a sure anchor for your weary soul.
Take a moment to reflect on these verses, and to meditate on what they truly mean in your situation.
May you not only see God more clearly, as you read these verses, but may You grow confident in the hope that you have in Him.
Scriptures for Comfort
“The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”
When you’re going through a tough time, it can feel as though you are all alone.
Maybe people have abandoned you in your time of need, or you feel as though you have no support, or anyone to understand what you’re going through.
I hope that this verse truly brings you comfort.
No matter what you’re facing, if you are in Christ, you are never alone.
That is a promise that He has made, and He does not turn His back on His promises.
He says that He Himself will go before you and be with you. That is why you don’t have to be afraid or be discouraged this time.
He will never leave you, even if everyone else does. That is a promise you can always cling to.
“Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.“
Trials are an inevitable part of life. It is one of the many results of the fall in the Garden of Eden.
Jesus endures trials, and He showed us how we can get through them as well.
By submitting to the Father’s will, and trusting Him, even when your feelings aren’t matching up.
It is quite amazing to think that even through our hardest times, there is joy that we can find, because God is testing our faith, and allowing it to become more pure.
More solid, and unshaking.
It can be tempting to turn away from God when we are going through difficulty. It can even be easier to place the blame on Him.
Yet, there is a grace that He gives to those who trust Him in the midst of their storms.
A grace that allows even the toughest parts of life to have meaning and purpose.
If you are facing a fiery trial today, I hope that you will find comfort in knowing that He is strengthening your faith through it, as you trust in Him.
“The Lord is my light and my salvation—
whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life—
of whom shall I be afraid?”
Many people struggle with what the bible calls “the fear of man”. Proverbs 29:25 says that, “The fear of man lays a snare, but whoever trusts in the Lord is safe.”
When we fear people, the trap that we’re walking into is that we are not trusting God.
Pleasing people at the cost of pleasing God poses a problem.
When we are more concerned with how people view us, or if they agree with us, it is easier for us to compromise the truth, and be something the world wants us to be rather than who God calls us to be.
That is why we don’t have to be afraid of people.
We find our approval and salvation in God through Christ.
He is the stronghold of our lives.
““Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”
Whenever I think of this verse, I picture a young child, weary from a long day of play, seeking only his mother or father’s chest to rest upon.
A place where they are safe, and comforted, and can find rest for their tiredness. In the same way, God is our loving and caring Father, who welcomes us to find rest for our souls.
Whether that is physical rest, mental, emotional, or our souls simply need to rest and be restored.
We can come to Him, and pray to Him, asking Him to provide us with that rest.
He never intended for us to carry our burdens alone.
If you are feeling weary today, and like there is no place to rest your head. Come to Christ.
He cares for you, and He desires to give you the rest and comfort you so desperately need.
“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”
The road ahead can seem long, dreary and never ending.
Sometimes you find yourself worn out, and don’t know how you can carry on.
I hope that you will remember that God can carry you through this time, as You seek Him, and lean on Him.
Even when our daily lives feel overwhelming, and our faith is being tested.
We remember that God has set out a race for us. And He doesn’t leave us to run it alone, but He equips us, and gives us comfort through His word and through other people.
How do we persevere? By fixing our eyes on Jesus. The author and perfecter of our faith.
“May your unfailing love be my comfort,
according to your promise to your servant.”
When we feel completely lost and alone. When we feel unloved, and forgotten. We can take comfort in the unfailing love of God.
The love of God that we cannot be separated from.
Romans 8:38-39 tells us that there is not a thing in the world that can separate us from His love.
Not death, neither life, neither angels, neither principalities, neither powers, neither things present, neither things to come, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation.
Absolutely nothing can separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
When you feel like you have nothing to hold onto, may this be your comfort.
Psalm 145: 18-19
“The Lord is near to all who call on him,
to all who call on him in truth.
He fulfills the desires of those who fear him;
he hears their cry and saves them.”
When you are grieving, or hurting, you can turn to God and cry out to Him.
His Word says that He is close to all who call on Him. If you seek Him, you will find Him, and He will grant You comfort.
We can take Him at His word, and call on Him in truth.
The word says that He fulfills the desires of those who fear Him.
If you are needing comfort today, call on Him, and He will give you peace and enfold you in His comfort.
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
There are many things in life that may cause you to feel anxious and uneasy.
Whether that is trying to figure out how ends are going to meet, when you or a loved one are ill or injured, or when trust is required.
Whatever you are anxious about, God’s word tells us not to be anxious about anything, rather, in every situation, to turn to Him in prayer.
As we turn to Him in trust, He allows us to experience His peace that transcends all understanding.
