December 22, 2020

Suffering, Complaining, Comfort, Contentment. Let's get real. When you need encouragement, you turn to the Bible. Here are some verses about suffering, complaining, comfort and contentment.

2Cor.4:17- For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory.

Psalm 56:8-You keep track of all my sorrows.You have collected all my tears in your bottle. You have recorded each one in your book.

Matthew 10:29,30-Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? And not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father. But even the hairs of your head are all numbered.

Phil.3:7-10- But whatever gain I had, I counted as loss for the sake of Christ.  Indeed, I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which comes through faith in Christ, the righteousness from God that depends on faith— that I may know him and the power of his resurrection, and may share his sufferings, becoming like him in his death.

Psalm 16:2-Thou art my God, I have no good besides thee.

Psalm 42:2-My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When shall I come and appear before God? (right attitude regardless of circumstances)

my heart and my flesh cry out for the living God. (biggest desire)

2Cor.12:9-10- And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.  Therefor I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.

2Corinthians 4:8-We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed.

Rom.8:35-39- Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?  As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Rom. 5:2-5-through whom we have obtained access to this grace in which we stand; and we boast in our hope of sharing the glory of God. And not only that, but we] also boast in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not disappoint us, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit that has been given to us.

1Peter 1:7-That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perishes, might be found unto praise, and honor and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ.

James 1:2-4- My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into diverse temptations; Knowing this, that the trying of your faith works patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and entire, lacking nothing.

Phil. 2:14-Do all things without murmurings and disputings (grumbling and questioning).

Eph.4:29- Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.

1Cor. 10:10-And do not grumble, as some of them did—and were killed by the destroying angel.

Exodus 16:8-And Moses said, “When the Lord gives you in the evening meat to eat and in the morning bread to the full, because the Lord has heard your grumbling that you grumble against him—what are we? Your grumbling is not against us but against the Lord.”

Phil. 4:11,12-I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want…I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.

1 Timothy 6:6-Godliness with contentment is great gain.

Proverbs 14:30-A heart at peace gives life to the body, but envy rots the bones. (Don’t envy those who are married)

1Peter 4:19-Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator.

2Cor.1:3-5-Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.  For just as we share abundantly in the sufferings of Christ, so also our comfort abounds through Christ.

2Cor.6:4,10-Rather, as servants of God we commend ourselves in every way: in great endurance; in troubles, hardships and distresses;  in beatings, imprisonments and riots; in hard work, sleepless nights and hunger… through glory and dishonor, bad report and good report; genuine, yet regarded as impostors;  known, yet regarded as unknown; dying, and yet we live on; beaten, and yet not killed;  sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; poor, yet making many rich; having nothing, and yet possessing everything.

2Cor.7:4-6-I have spoken to you with great frankness; I take great pride in you. I am greatly encouraged; in all our troubles my joy knows no bounds. For when we came into Macedonia, we had no rest, but we were harassed at every turn—conflicts on the outside, fears within.  But God, who comforts the downcast, comforted us by the coming of Titus.

Heb.2:10-For it was fitting that he, for whom and by whom all things exist, in bringing many sons to glory, should make the founder of their salvation perfect through suffering.

Rom. 8:18-For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time, can not compare to the glory that shall be revealed in us.
