2 Corinthians 1:4 He comforts us in all our troubles. Now we can comfort others when they are in trouble. We ourselves receive comfort from God.
One of my favourite Bible verses is John 16:33 which says “In this world, you will have trouble. But be encouraged! I have won the battle over the world.”
God offers us comfort even during our difficulties. Many of us believe when we get into recovery and hand life over to God all our troubles are going to disappear. That is not true.
Comfort from God can come in the form of strength to endure through our problems. It can come in the hope that one day we will overcome our problems. It can come in the form of encouragement to deal with the hardships of life and not give up.
When we are feeling discouraged and down hearted God can use that to help us support someone going through similar things to us.
