He Is Comfort
Troubled? Afflicted? Exhausted? Disillusioned?
If you’re at all like me, then that can be part of your Christian experience—sometimes all at the same time. God will comfort you. That's who He is. He doesn't comfort you because you do anything right or anything wrong. He comforts because that’s who and how He is. Comfort is what He has for you because comfort is who He is. (John 16:7; 2 Cor 1:3-7)
Interestingly enough, you may also expect Him to provide counsel along with comfort since the two words may be used interchangeably. That figures, doesn't it?
