Comfort in God’s Word – Inspirational Bible Verses – Psalm 119

salm Comfort promises God               Psalm 119:50 This is what comforts me in my trouble, for your promise revives me.

The word here for comfort in Hebrew is Nekhamah, also used in Elohei khol-Nechamah, GOD of all Comfort. The word used here for comfort describes a reassurance that nothing and no one else can satisfy but God.

We are all beset by burdens that oppress us from time to time. Small annoyances can turn into wounds that agonize and torment our hearts and spirits. It is in those moments of distress that we must allow ourselves to find new life in God’s promises.

There is not one among us that is without heartache and affliction, inward or outward. God has made numerous promises in His Word regarding the pain that we will face in life. One thing that I have learned about promises in the human realm, they are made to be broken – but such is not the case with God.

I have not been able to keep every promise that I have made in life. At times I have forgotten what I had promised, and other times circumstances were beyond my control and I was not able to keep what I had promised.

God never forgets what He has promised and has written them in His Word so that we might be comforted by them. Our circumstances are never beyond His capacity to control them so He is able to keep what He has promised to each and every one of us. There are over 7,000 promises in the Bible, and we can rest assured that God is faithful to keep them. Listed below are a few that you can take to heart in your times of need.

2 Corinthians 1:19 – 20 tells us that God is faithful. Jesus Christ, the Son of God, does not waver between “Yes” and “No. He always does what He says. All of God’s promises have been fulfilled in Christ with a resounding “Yes! All of God’s promises are “YES in Christ Jesus. So when hard times beset you, do you believe the storm around you, or do you believe the Word of God? In Christ, you don’t have to summon up the courage to face your future, as God has already done that for you.

God has plans for your future: Jeremiah 29:11 – I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

God will supply all your needs: Philippians 4:19 – God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.

God will be with you and protect you: Isaiah 43:2 – When you pass through the waters, I will be close to you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned.

God’s love will never leave you: Isaiah 54:10 – Though the mountains vanish, My unending love with never leave you.

God will listen to you: 1 John 5:14 – This is the boldness which we have toward Him, that if we ask anything according to his will, He listens to us.

God promises you eternal life: John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. God’s promises are an ironclad contract to bless our lives.

The promises of God are not based on what we do or don’t do. They are given to us because of God’s desire to bring blessings and comfort in our lives. God’s promises are an ironclad contract that cannot be broken. All God’s promises are fulfilled in Christ who by His sacrifice has made us right with God.

  3. Recently, I talk with a man that had left religion in his youth. He wants to let go of that. He has a great conflict within. He had been emotionally abused as a boy… threatened every day. His parents had been openly very active in relations with other couples. His marriage had failed. His appreciation of fellow men and women was waning. I learned about these promises as I listened to my friend. I learn about my honesty and my shortcomings. I learn of my fears. He makes progress. He thanks me. If he were not willing to seek Holy Spirit, I just can’t imagine the depression he’d be facing. We rarely talk of God; yet everything we talk about is about God’s relevance in our lives.

    God’s grace is clearly keeping my friend coming to his senses. I realize this is true of myself as well.

    Blessings.

  4. Darrell, thank you for this reminder of God’s faithfulness, steadfast love for us. I needed this reminder this morning and God brought me to your blog at the close of my time with Him this morning. Thank you, too, for your messages each day. God’s message thru your writings is a blessing in my life. Have a blessed day.

  5. Thank You LORD JESUS for all your promises!! Blessings Darrell and Gracie!

  6. Darrell, thanks for your posts, I appreciate them. Its good to be reminded of God’s promises. Like you, and many other people, I have been through some very tough storms. The one I am in now has gone on for years without respite, and has included some heavy spiritual warfare. I know that I helped create some of the trials I am in, but I also believe God has allowed a lot of it Himself. So, how am I to look at things? On one hand I am quite discouraged. On another, I believe I may be getting prepared for something. Either way, I wish this storm would pass. Its taken almost everything from me, except God of course.

  7. BIBLE TRANSLATIONS

    The thought process of some Christians is puzzling to say the least. Why do some believers in Christ question that God has the power to guide men to translate Bibles that are inerrant, trustworthy, accurate, faultless, reliable, infallible.

    Some of the same Christians who believe the following miracles of the Bible, doubt that God can produce an inerrant translation of the Bible.

    They believe that Aaron’s staff became a serpent. (Exodus 7:10-12) However they do not believe that translations of the Bible are trustworthy.

    They believe Jesus was resurrected from the dead. (John 21:14) However they do not agree that Bible translations are inerrant.

    They believe that the dead man Elisha stood up on his feet. (2 Kings 13:20-21) However they doubt that Bible translations are infallible.

    They believe Jesus brought Lazarus back from the dead. (John 11:37-44) However they do not affirm that Bible translations are reliable.

    They believe that God turned Lots wife into a pillar of salt. (Genesis 19:26) However they are not convince that God has given us a translation of the Bible that is accurate.

    Even those who state that the King James translation is the only accurate translation, believe that Mark 16:16 does mean what is says: They say “Has been baptized shall be saved” actually means, “Has already been saved before they were baptized.” The assert that Acts 2:38 actually means “Be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ because your sins have already been forgiven.” They really do not trust the KJV either.

    Ninety-nine percent of the Bible translations are accurate, trustworthy, inerrant translations of God’s word.

    A few of my favorites are New American Standard Bible, King James Version, New King James Version, English Standard Version, and New International Version. There are also many other reliable translations.
