The most important aspect of God’s Word is the promises that are contained within, promises that He makes to those who are prepared to trust Him. It is these promises that bring comfort, promises that feed off the weakest spark of saving faith to provide the reward of comfort, peace and joy.
This month we thought we would look at comforting verses from the Bible. In John chapter 16 verse 33, Jesus tells us that we will have trouble but that we can take heart because He has overcome the world!
We reached out to friends on social media around the world to ask them for their favorite verse which gives them comfort and we are going to share them with you here. Various versions of the Bible were used. You may have your own verse – please share it with us in the comments box as we would love to hear from you.
Before we start one thing we do as a family is write verses down on sticky notes and stick them in places around the house as a constant reminder that God is with us always. We have some on the fridge, some on the side of the bookcase, some on our laptop as our screensaver and we journal them too.
Here are some of the verse’s folks shared:

God is faithful, no matter what we need to endure.” Lamentations chapter 3 verses 22 to 26

These verses all show us that even if we have difficulties in this life, ultimately God’s blessings are more than we can even imagine and that our God *is* the God of comfort. We hope that some of these verses will provide comfort for you in the days ahead.
