A Word From Dr. Stanley

March 2020

Comfort. It’s something we all need from God. As believers, we’re not immune to grief. In fact, at times life can be even more difficult for a Christian because of the intense trials and brokenness we encounter on the path of submission and service. Whatever you’re facing today, I encourage you not to despair. Your heavenly Father loves you and will comfort you in all your troubles; in fact, He is “the Father of mercies and God of all comfort” (2 Corinthians 1:3-4). We always have the gift of forgiveness through His Son and the presence of the Holy Spirit—who is called the “Comforter” (John 14:16 KJV)—to sustain us and give us hope. This month, ask God to soothe your sorrows as you pursue Him each day. You don’t need to suffer alone.
