There are so many Bible verses on God’s comfort that can help us remember He is there in troubled times. We are so often told to look to God when we’re in pain or when things seem so dark, but not all of us know how to do that naturally.
The Bible has answers when it comes to reminding ourselves that God is always there to provide us with the warmth we desire. Here are some Bible verses on God’s comfort:

1 THESSALONIANS 4:13-18
And now, dear brothers and sisters, we want you to know what will happen to the believers who have died so you will not grieve like people who have no hope. For since we believe that Jesus died and was raised to life again, we also believe that when Jesus returns, God will bring back with him the believers who have died.
We tell you this directly from the Lord: We who are still living when the Lord returns will not meet him ahead of those who have died. For the Lord himself will come down from heaven with a commanding shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet call of God. First, the Christians who have died[c] will rise from their graves. Then, together with them, we who are still alive and remain on the earth will be caught up in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. Then we will be with the Lord forever. So encourage each other with these words. (NLT)
For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.(NIV)
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. (NIV)
