Message 48:15

Be ye comforted one and all; let not your hearts be troubled. The Lord is mindful and he knoweth the desires of each heart. He will bless you and cause that you may have great joy, all ye that obey his will, for in him is salvation.

Let the peace of the Lord fill your heart. No matter what is going on in your life, the Lord will give you what you need. The biggest gift that Christ gives us is our salvation. We might not be able to see it now, but in the end it will be worth it.

Message 98:5

I come as the Messenger of the Lord. The Lord has been and will be with his people by his Spirit, and his peace shall long linger with the faithful until they become the jewels of God, called, chosen and faithful.

God will never leave us. If we stay faithful to the Lord he will make sure that we are with him in the end. This is a great promise that we rely on.

Acts 11:15-16

And as I began to speak, the Holy Ghost fell on them, as on us at the beginning. Then remembered I the word of the Lord, how that he said, John indeed baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost.

After baptism comes the Holy Ghost. This is a great gift from God to us to help us in our daily lives. It is a comforter in our times of sorrow. It is helper in our times of confusion. It is nice to have around.

Psalms 37:1-6

Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity. For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb. Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed. Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass. And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday.

The Lord is a lot of things. One of which is comforter. He is always there when we need him. We know that in the end he will stand beside us and all of enemies will disappear. Let us relax in this notion, God will never leave us or forsake us. He will always be there.

Message 95: 2

He has heard the prayers of the faithful and with his warm and consoling Spirit will comfort and heal every whit, even unto the uttermost.

The Spirit that comes from Christ is comforting. If you open your heart up to Christ, he will come in and fill it full. There is no place that his spirit will not reach if we only follow his teachings.

2 Chronicles 6:18

But will God in very deed dwell with men on the earth? behold, heaven and the heaven of heavens cannot contain thee; how much less this house which I have built!

God is too great to stay in heaven. He does come down and dwell in us. He sends in Holy Spirit to us to give us comfort and direction. Let us be thankful that God is always here.

Message 73:6

The Lord knoweth the hearts of mankind and wherein they desire to learn and do his will, it shall be like precious ointment poured out upon the faithful to dwell in this light of life and salvation. For unto them, shall be great joy, that which the mind of man has not yet attained to.

If we are looking for the Lord we will find him. When we find him we will receive his blessings. The peace and joy that comes from the Lord  is comforting.

Alma 34:17

Therefore may God grant unto you, my brethren, that ye might begin to exercise your faith unto repentance, that ye begin to call upon his holy name, that he would have mercy upon you; Yea, cry unto him for mercy; for he is mighty to save. Yea, humble yourselves, and continue in prayer unto him. Cry unto him when ye are in your fields, yea, over all your flocks. Cry unto him in your houses, yea, over all your household, both morning, mid-day, and evening. Yea, cry unto him against the power of your enemies. Yea, cry unto him against the devil, which is an enemy to all righteousness. Cry unto him over the crops of your fields, that ye may prosper in them. Cry over the flocks of your fields, that they may increase. But this is not all; ye must pour out your souls in your closets, and your secret places, and in your wilderness. Yea, and when you do not cry unto the Lord, let your hearts be full, drawn out in prayer unto him continually for your welfare, and also for the welfare of those which are around you. And now behold, my beloved brethren, I say unto you, do not suppose that this is all; for after ye have done all these things, if ye turn away the needy, and the naked, and visit not the sick and afflicted, and impart of your substance, if ye have, to those which stand in need—I say unto you, if ye do not any of these things, behold, your prayer is vain, and availeth you nothing, and ye are as hypocrites which do deny the faith.

We need to remember to pray to the Lord always. He will give us the strength we need to live our lives. He will give us the comfort we need when we need comforting. He will bless us and most of all he will love us. In return we must love him and do his work on earth. The means we must love others.

Alma 13:28-29

But that ye would humble yourselves before the Lord, and call on his holy name, and watch and pray continually, that ye may not be tempted above that which ye can bear, and thus be led by the Holy Spirit, becoming humble, meek, submissive, patient, full of love and all longsuffering; Having faith on the Lord; having a hope that ye shall receive eternal life; having the love of God always in your hearts, that ye may be lifted up at the last day and enter into his rest.

We need to take comfort in that fact that God will not give us more then we can handle. In our temptations, if we allow ourselves to be led by the Holy Spirit, we will make it to the end. But only if we strive to follow the Lord. We need have have the right frame of mine. This includes being humble, meek, submissive, patient, full of love and all long suffering. Life on earth might no be easy, but if we keep our eye on the prize, the next stage will be amazing.

Jeremiah 32:27

Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me?

God can do any thing. Let give him our problems and let him help us solve them. With God any thing is possible and nothing is to hard.

Message 59:10

The Lord is the resurrection and the life. He that believeth on him and obeys his will shall have right to the tree of life and to eternity, and in them shall be seen the glory of God, for Christ came to redeem and to provide the way. Therefore, I come to point the way and that the Church of Christ, the Lamb’s bride, may be prepared to meet him when he comes, when all men will live to serve the Lord, that the millennium reign shall be. And the great day of the Lord shall come, when all the earth shall rejoice and be glad for a new heaven and a new earth shall be in the Lord’s planning.

Christ is the way of salvation. John act as a ling between Christ and the church. If we listen to what John says we will be ready for Christ with he returns to earth. When Christ does come back, there will be much joy and happiness on earth. Let us be confronted in the idea that God has a plan for us to be saved.
