When it comes to suffering, in the life of a Christian, God is always concerned, and is always ready to be a present help in trouble, as he has promised in Psalm 46:1.
God always cares about our tears, and he wants to wipe them away, as he has promised in the book of Revelation.
God cares for your tears! What are you crying for! If it not because of joy, then it surely is because of suffering. There is so much going around in the world now, to make you feel crying for a week, non stop. Is God passive to hurry up to comfort you, and wipe away your tears? The Bible is full with verses about God, wanting to comfort his own children, in the Old Testament and the New.
Do you worry about the things going around in the world? Do you worry about things in your own life, perhaps how get rid of a chronic disease, or how to find an employment, or perhaps, about broken relationships with members of your own family?

Do you sometimes feel fearful and worried, what is going to happen next in all this situation of trouble and bad news in the world? If you do, you are not alone!
Even as a Christians, we can fall into depression and negative way of thinking just by watching what is going around us, and in the world.
But, as a Christian, you have the great advantage, in comparison of people of this world, without God! What is the advantage? Well, the solid truth and fact, that you have the Spirit of the Almighty God, living on the inside of you, the one who is also called the ‘Comforter’ in the original Greek language by which the New Testament is written.
You see, when we read chapter 14 and verse 1 from the Gospel of John, we can clearly see, that Jesus told his disciples, not to let their hearts be troubled. That is not an option, I believe that is a command! God does not tell us “Well, if you want….Click here to continue…
