I think its safe to say that we can all use a little, otay a lot of comfort right now. I flinch every time I see a new headline or see a news update on social media. And I feel like a lot of you feel the same way I do + that is, I don’t know how much more my heart can take of all the heart breaking deviation going on in the world. When I need major comforting I go to the source- God. He is the ultimate everything + has given us so many comforting Bible verses! So today’s Friday Favorite is all about comforting Bible verses.
✨ NUMBERS 6:24-26 ✨
“May the Lord bless you and protect you. May the Lord smile on you and be gracious to you. May the Lord show you his favor and give you his peace.”
I love this verse. I think it is so comforting because God has done this for me!! He had blessed me so much more than I deserve and need! He has protected me from so much that I know of + so much that I don’t know about! I feel God smiles down on me every time I notice a God wink + He is so gracious to me! When I turn to Him every time I need him or to thank Him I feel so much peace!
✨PSALM 37:34 ✨
“Trust in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart.”
This is so true! I can not tell you how many times I tried to do things my way or take care of things without God + failed miserably! When I stubbornly finally accepted my defeat + I prayed to God to help. I usually say, “God, I can’t do this on my own. I need you. Tag your it.” And once I put my trust in Him it, every thing worked out perfectly. So when I get too wrapped up in doing things my own + when they don’t work out, I turn to this verse + it brings such peace because it reminds me to put my trust in Him!
✨ JEREMIAH 29:11 ✨
“For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not disaster, to give you a future and a hope.”
This is probably one of the most popular comfort verses, as it should be. It’s an awesome one! I mean how much more comfort can God gives us than to LITERALLY tell us that He has plans for us! Plans to give us good, a future + a hope! What more can we want?! What more is there to life?! Love it!
✨ MATTHEW 14:27 ✨
“But Jesus spoke to them at once. “Don’t be afraid.” he said. “Take courage. I am here!”
I remember feeling so much peace when I read this in my Bible + underlined it! It was like an aha moment for me! I thought, “Durh Jen! 🤦🏻♀️ Jesus is with you all the time! Why are we trying to do everything + be afraid of everything?! He’s got you!” He’s with you + us through all the lows of our lives. We are never alone! He cries with us in our valleys + celebrates with us as we shout from our mountain tops!
✨ PSALM 91:9-13 ✨
“If you make the Lord your refuge, if you make the Most High your shelter, no evil will conquer you: no plague will come near your home. For he will order his angels to protect you wherever you go.”
This is another popular comport verse + again it should be! It’s awesome! Not only is God behind you, you also have his army of Angels behind you! What can hurt you with that type of protection? It’s the ultimate comfort to me!
