Comfort From the Bible
Short Description: Lists special words of solace and encouragement from the Bible for times of
loneliness, fear, temptation and difficulty. Large print.
In the Bible God promises comfort to all who put their trust in the Lord Jesus Christ.
When you are troubled...
"Come unto Me, all ye that labor and are
heavy laden, and I will give you rest" (Matthew 11:28).
When you are lonely...
"Fear thou not; for I am with thee. Be not
dismayed; for I am thy God. I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea,
I will uphold thee with the right hand of My righteousness" (Isaiah 41:10).
When you are anxious...
"Be anxious for nothing, but in everything,
by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known
unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your
hearts and minds through Christ Jesus" (Philippians 4:6-7).
When you are afraid...
"God is our refuge and strength, a very
present help in trouble" (Psalm 46:1). "Yea, though I walk through the valley of
the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for Thou art with me..." (Psalm
When you face trials...
"My brethren, count it all joy when you
fall into various trials, knowing this, that the testing of your faith worketh
patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and
entire, lacking nothing" (James 1:2-4).
When you are tempted...
"There hath no temptation taken you but
such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not permit you to be
tempted above that ye are able, but will, with the temptation, also make the way
to escape, that ye may be able to bear it" (1 Corinthians 10:13).
When you need strength...
"My grace is sufficient for thee; for My
strength is made perfect in weakness" (2 Corinthians 12:9).
When you need wisdom...
"If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of
God, who giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not, and it shall be given
him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering" (James 1:5-6a).
When you need forgiveness...
"If we confess our sins, He is
faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all
unrighteousness" (1 John 1:9).
When you need assurance...
Jesus promises, "He that heareth My
word, and believeth on Him that sent Me, hath everlasting life, and shall not
come into judgment, but is passed from death unto life" (John 5:24).
The Bible tells us how we can trust Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.
Recognize that only God can save you... not because you are "doing the
best you can," not because of your religious efforts, but because of what Jesus
Christ did for you on the Cross of Calvary. "For by grace are ye saved through
faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God--not of works, lest any
man should boast" (Ephesians 2:8-9).
Confess that you cannot save yourself, that you are a sinner worthy of
God's righteous judgment. "For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is
eternal life through Jesus Christ, our Lord" (Romans 6:23).
Believe the good news that Christ died for you and that He arose from
the dead and now lives to save all who come to Him (Hebrews 7:25). "Whosoever
shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved" (Romans 10:13).
Rely upon God's sure promise, not upon your feelings. By faith declare
you are saved by the blood of Jesus Christ shed for the forgiveness of your
sins. Openly confess Him as Lord and Savior (Romans 10:9-10).
If you have not yet received Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, we
encourage you to do so now in the quietness of your heart. We invite you to sign
your name below as a testimony of your decision and to write to the address
below for helpful Christian literature.
