God’s Wonderful Promises – Comfort
In Part 1 of God’s Wonderful Promises we studied God’s perfect faithfulness. And how God’s promises are actually guarantees because of His perfect faithfulness.
Then in Part 4 of God’s Wonderful Promises we studied some of the many promises about fear. Fear can paralyze a believer’s faith and inhibit your fellowship with God. And fear can prevent you from faithfully obeying and following God’s perfect will for your life.
Now we will continue to search God’s Word and find His promises about comfort. There will be some difficult times in our life when we need God’s comfort. Time when only God can truly bring comfort and peace in our heart. And He will never fail to do this.
