Hello my dear friends, welcome to the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Today we will learn what the Bible says about feeling down and sad and how God’s Word comforts us when we go through such times of distress.
Sometimes when bad times come in our lives we get upset and sad and think it’s our destiny. We think God has ordained us for these bad things that make us feel bad and some even give up on God.
But here we need to understand that God is going to give us something good when we have a bad time in our lives and he wants to give us power so that we can overcome that sad time. God teaches us that He is by our side and supporting us in difficult times.
That is why Paul said that when I am weak I will rejoice with joy because the power of Christ removes my weakness (Corinthians 12:9). The Word of God also tells us that the happiness that awaits us in our time of sorrow is incomparable to the sorrow of this present age (Romans 8:18).
Let us now look at the Bible verses that comfort us when we are feeling down and sad.
2 Corinthians 1:3-4(KJV“Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God”
