When I am in need of comfort where do I turn? Often times I turn to a friend, or I turn to a parent. Perhaps one may turn to a sibling or a fellow church member. It seems so natural to turn to these individuals but ultimately they don't have the power to comfort your soul. Yes, they may provide you solace temporarily, but true comfort comes from God. God is the one who comforted David when he was in distress because his friends were few and his enemies were plenty. God is the one who comforted Israel when they found themselves in exile and God is willing, ready, and able to comfort you. The prophet Jeremiah book is known as the book of comfort. God is a God of comfort let God comfort you.
