God is with us in our sorrow, we dared to believe He would redeem and restore them. Thanking Him for grief declares He is bigger than our worst moment and stronger than our worst pain.
But there’s more. There’s so much more that it’s almost impossible to realize the magnitude of the good news.
Not only is He mightier than our pain, He stands right in the middle of it with us. We are not alone, finding some way to faithfully thank Him while the pain threatens to wash us away, because He stands over, under, and beside us the entire time.
A Blessing of Sorrow
Some mourn because of the regrets from sinful ways and others mourn because of the sinful acts of others against them. Knowing Christ makes the difference as He has sent the Comforter to those who place their trust in Him. We are comforted even when we are stricken with grief as the Lord brings peace that passes all understanding through the Holy Spirit. In sorrowful days we may not feel blessed at that time—yet we will know His comforting hand over our hurting souls.
How God Comforts us in Sorrow
I wanted to find comfort in God in my sorrow. But I didn’t know how. I felt lonely and like no one could understand my grief. Though wanting to reach out to God, I was also discouraged since my prayers appeared to be unanswered.
Sorrow and grief are strong emotions that push us to reach out for comfort. However, it’s in those situations where find comforting in God seems hopeless.
When we’re upset, grieving, and possibly angry, the God of all Comfort feels so far from us. Just the opposite is true. God wants to comfort us in our sorrow, and as we grieve, He is grieving as well.
What are good scriptures for comfort
The Bible is also a huge source of comfort for Christians. In the chaos of life, it’s easy to shift our focus to our circumstances, ourselves, other people, or material things. But Scripture always reframes our perspective by reminding us of who God is. Suffering is a part of life because we live in a world with sin. But that’s not the end of the story.
(2 Corinthians 1:5)says, “For as we share abundantly in Christ’s sufferings, so through Christ we share abundantly in comfort too.”
