God’s Promises Offer Consolation

Psalm 23:4 GW

God’s life-changing word overflows with his promises of real love, forgiveness, salvation, peace, hope, and joy for everyone who trusts in his Son, Jesus.

These seven passages assure Christians of the Lord’s compassion in times of pain and sorrow.

You have seen it; yes, you have taken note of trouble and grief
and placed them under your control.
The victim entrusts himself to you.
You alone have been the helper of orphans.
Psalm 10:14

Even though I walk through the dark valley of death,
because you are with me, I fear no harm.
Your rod and your staff give me courage.
Psalm 23:4

His anger lasts only a moment.
His favor lasts a lifetime.
Weeping may last for the night,
but there is a song of joy in the morning.
Psalm 30:5



The LORD is near to those whose hearts are humble.
He saves those whose spirits are crushed.
Psalm 34:18

The people ransomed by the LORD will return.
They will come to Zion singing with joy.
Everlasting happiness will be on their heads as a crown.
They will be glad and joyful.
They will have no sorrow or grief.
Isaiah 35:10

He certainly has taken upon himself our suffering
and carried our sorrows,
but we thought that God had wounded him,
beat him, and punished him.
Isaiah 53:4

“Now you’re in a painful situation. But I will see you again. Then you will be happy, and no one will take that happiness away from you.”
John 16:22
