When a child skins his knee, chances are he will run to his mother first for comfort. When we need comfort we run to God. He doesn’t promise we want have trouble in this life, but He does promise He will be with us when we do. What a comfort knowing God is our shelter in the storms.
I don’t know what each of you is facing today, but I know one who does, not only does He know, but He cares. These are the words to a song that comforts my soul. I pray they will touch you today.
“When your world seems cold and your friends seem few there is someone who cares for you; When you need a friend, a friend till the end, there is someone who cares for you; Someone to care, someone to share all your burdens like no other can do; He’ll come down from the sky and brush the tears from your eyes for there is someone who cares for you; When disappointments come and you feel so blue, there is someone who cares for you; He’ll come down and wipe the tears from your eyes for there is someone cares for you.”
I feel some of you need comfort today and to know someone loves you very much. He cares what you are going through and will take you in His loving arms, if you will only turn to Him.
Here are some scriptures I pray will be a blessing to you.
“I will comfort you there like a mother comforting her child” (Isaiah 66:13 CEV).
“Shout for joy, you heavens; Rejoice, you earth; Burst into song, you mountains! For the Lord comforts His people and will have compassion on His afflicted ones” (Isaiah 49:13). Comfort is not the absence of problems; Comfort is the strength to face them.
“Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil for you are with me: Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me” (Psalms 23:4 NIV).
“God blesses those who grieve. They will find comfort!” (Matthew 5:4). “God didn’t promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow, sun without rain, but He promises strength for the day, comfort for tears and light for the way”-Anonymous.
“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. For just as we share abundantly in the sufferings of Christ, so also our comfort abounds through Christ.” (2 Corinthians 1:3-5 NIV).
“I serve you Lord. Comfort me with your love just as you have promised” (Psalms 119:76).
Until next time remember-“God our Father loves us. He is kind and He has given us eternal comfort and a wonderful hope” (2 Thessalonians 2:16).
