Comfort in the Storm

What are some Bible verses that comfort you when you feel like the world is falling apart?

This is a great question. Between all the things that are culminating in this year of 2020, there is no other time then I enjoy what the Word of God has to say to me. Scripture reminds us of the truth of God’s sovereignty even when we don’t know what is about to happen.

I remember James, who told us to consider trials pure joy because we know God is working in us (James 1:2-4). I remember that God is working on me at all times, even through the situations that I face.

Peter reminds us that we suffer for Christ, and we can cast Oliver cares on Jesus because he cares for us (1 Peter 5:7). I don’t have to be afraid of anything that I face because Jesus loves me, and his perfect love casts out all fear (1 John 4:18).

I can have peace even though the world around me is raging like a storm, like the winds and waves on the sea. The peace God gives me surpasses all of my understanding, and even when it doesn’t make sense, I can have peace because God is watching over me (Philippians 4:7).

Even if I am afraid, I place my trust in the one who is greater in me than he that is in the world (1 John 4:4). When I need comfort, I look to the God of all comfort who comforts me in every affliction I face (2 Corinthians 1:3-4).

I trust in the Lord because I know that he is walking with me. I know that he is the Good Shepherd who takes care of my every need (Psalm 23:1-6). Jesus said that there would be persecution in this world, but he has overcome the world (John 16:33).

I remember that Jesus gave each of us the great commission and he can use us even in these times because he is always with us, even to the end of the age (Matthew 28:18-20). God is in control and nothing surprises him. I take comfort that he is the one in charge.
