God is Your Comfort

By: Sarah Geringer 

Do you need some comfort that lasts longer than a warm blanket, a hot cup of coffee or tea, or a hug from a loved one?

God is your ultimate source of comfort. His comfort will sink into your spirit as you meditate deeply on these comfort-themed verses.


Even when I walk through the darkest valley, I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me. Your rod and your staff protect and comfort me.

When you face darkness or danger, God’s comfort is a protection for you. He walks right beside you in your suffering.


Your promise revives me; it comforts me in all my troubles.

Psalm 119:50 NLT

Which promise of God is reviving you today? The book of Psalms is full of God’s promises. Choose one to help you through your troubles today.


May your unfailing love be my comfort, according to your promise to your servant.

Psalm 119:76 NIV

In which struggle can God’s unconditional love bless and comfort you? Meditate on this verse as often as needed, to receive God’s love over and over.


I, yes I, am the one who comforts you. So why are you afraid of mere humans, who wither like the grass and disappear?

Suffering from a broken heart? The freedom God provides gives you hope and comfort. He does not overlook your hurt, but promises redemption.


As one whom his mother comforts, so I will comfort you; you shall be comforted in Jerusalem.

God comforts us with the same kind of tender loving care a mother has for her baby. Picture God holding you in his arms when you need comfort.


I will turn their mourning into joy. I will comfort them and exchange their sorrow for rejoicing.

For the more we suffer for Christ, the more God will shower us with his comfort through Christ.
