God loves to be a comforter

God loves to be a comforter.  His heart is ever tender and compassionate toward human pain and suffering.  When we look into the Bible we find it full of comfort from beginning to end.  On every page God is trying to get men to believe that He loves them, that He is their friend, that He wants them to do good.  There is not a chapter in the Scriptures which does not in some way reveal or declare divine mercy.  That is what makes the Bible such a dear and precious book to the dreary, the struggling, the disappointed, the wronged, the bereaved, the lonely.  The Bible is like a mother’s bosom, to lay one’s head upon in a time of pain and distress.
