Today as we face a world of uncertainty and trials, we must trust God who raises the dead and give comfort to others in trials. Pray and study God’s word daily, repent, renew the inward man and ask God for fruits of His spirit. Instead of self focus, let us focus on God, the promise of eternal life and the resurrection of the dead. God is the only source of true comfort and mercy!
