God’s Unfailing Promises

God longs to comfort us when we are afraid, uncertain, or hurting.

The Bible is filled with God’s promises, and together they’re woven into a beautiful tapestry depicting His goodness. Among the greatest of all the threads is the promise of God’s comfort. In 2 Corinthians 1:3-4, we learn that He is “the Father of all mercies and God of all comfort.” Likewise, in Hebrews 13:5, the author reminds us of the Lord’s pledge: “I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.” We are not alone in this life, left to muddle through it as best we can. We have a loving heavenly Father who walks alongside us through it all.

That means that no matter what you’re facing in life—whether it’s a financial crisis, a health scare, strained relationships, or even everyday hardships — God is your refuge and strength, able to protect and console you no matter what (Ps. 46:1). He understands your pain and fear, your anger and doubt, and He is sufficient to care for and aid you through even the darkest seasons of life.

Think about it!
