Comfort or ease is a feeling very much associated with peace. God gives us comfort, but we should not always have our minds turned towards only the physical comforts of worldly pleasures, but it is more spiritual than physical.
In fact, when God speaks about blessing and comforting His people, even when He blesses us, it is not with the aim for us to have comfort as in a state of being at rest because of the physical riches that we have achieved. His comfort is something spiritual that comes from the Spirit of God. It is the peace of God that we have in us because of the hope that we have in Him. (2 Thessalonians 2:16)
God has not told us that we will not have challenges, but with every challenge comes the assurance of comfort if we know whom we have believed. (Psalm 23:4)
The Spirit of God in us is the comforter for the believer:
“But the Comforter, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things, and will remind you of all that I said to you.” John 14:26
