Father, please give us comfort and encouragement through your word in Bible study today. Kindle our hope in the coming of Christ and the glory that we will share with him. Strengthen our patience as we wait for the time when all suffering and sin will be swept away. May we endure all things with a certain conviction that we are more than conquerors through him who loved us, for nothing can seperate us from your love in Christ Jesus our Lord. May our hearts be filled with these truths, rather than the lies of false comforts that leave us starved.
