They Shall Be Comforted (Matthew 5:4; James 1:16-18)
The book of James reminds us that God is good all the time, even during our hardest trials.
James 1:16-18 shows us three things we must remember during difficult times that will bring us comfort:
I. Remember God’s Love (James 1:16; Romans 8:38-39; John 3:16-17)
II. Remember God’s Goodness (James 1:17; Psalm 34:8)
III. Remember God’s Grace (James 1:18; Ephesians 2:8; 2 Timothy 1:9)
Suggestions for Prayer: Pray for individuals who are mourning that God would comfort them.
For Further Study: Read the entire chapter of James 1.
Action: Send a sympathy card or provide comfort in some other way to someone who is mourning.
