He Is Close to the Broken Hearted
By: Sabrina Peters
I’m so glad “comforter” isn’t His title, but His nature. When darkness seems to hide his face. I rest on His unchanging grace. Here are some incredible verses to encourage you. Praying for all those suffering and struggling. May His grace be real, tangible and with you right now!
Bible Verses about the Comfort of God
“If your heart is broken, you’ll find God right there; if you’re kicked in the gut, he’ll help you catch your breath.”
Psalm 34:18 (MESSAGE)
“All praises belong to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. For he is the Father of tender mercy and the God of endless comfort. He always comes alongside us to comfort us in every suffering so that we can come alongside those who are in any painful trial. We can bring them this same comfort that God has poured out upon us. And just as we experience the abundance of Christ’s own sufferings, even more of God’s comfort will cascade upon us through our union with Christ. If troubles weigh us down, that just means that we will receive even more comfort to pass on to you for your deliverance! For the comfort pouring into us empowers us to bring comfort to you. And with this comfort upholding you, you can endure victoriously the same suffering that we experience. Now our hope for you is unshakable, because we know that just as you share in our sufferings you will also share in God’s comforting strength.”
2 Corinthians 1:3 (TPT)
“I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.”
John 14:18 (NIV)
“Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.”
Matthew 5:14 (NIV)
“Out of my deep anguish and pain I prayed, and God, you helped me as a father. You came to my rescue and broke open the way into a beautiful and broad place.”
Psalm 118:5 (TPT)
“I, yes I, am the one who comforts you. All the sons of men will be cut down and fade like grass. Why then would you be afraid of a mere human being?”

“Now may God, the source of great endurance and comfort, grace you with unity among yourselves, which flows from your relationship with Jesus, the Anointed One.”
