When people are going through tough times, this saying is true, “If you don’t have anything good to say, don’t say anything.” Some people just say things that will add gasoline to the fire or salt to the wound. In other words, they will only make the tough time harder that it already is. It is a good thing that our God is a God of comfort and you will always find comfort in His word. Authentic Christians, those who allow God to work in them and use them, will most times seek to encourage you instead of ripping you apart.
The prophets of old brought both good news and bad. However, in Isaiah 40:1, God’s message was to comfort His people. God wanted them to know that He had pardoned them of their sins and He will make everything right. In verse 4-5 of Isaiah 40, He promises to exalt every valley experience and lower every mountain or hill in your life, and all the crooked paths shall be made smooth and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed and all flesh shall see it together: For God has spoken.
As children of God, we will always be comforted by God’s word. This is why Jesus said, He will not leave us comfortless, but will ask our heavenly Father to send the comforter (the Holy Spirit). Unlike David who encouraged himself in the Lord, Jesus has given us the Holy Spirit to encourage us. Jesus knew that in the last days we would reach places in our life where we wouldn’t be able to encourage ourselves, but He who is greater intercedes and prays for us, and even does those things that we cannot.
- When your prayers are answered that’s when you see and know that God has been glorified, praised, honored and thanked beyond measure.
- Remember, the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and His ears are opened to their prayers (Psalm 34:15; 1 Peter 3:12)
Allow God’s word to be a lamp to your feet and a light to your path (Psalm 119:105). Meditate on His word and experience His comfort, joy and peace as you keep your mind on Him. God’s word is the only source of comfort because only God can move on your behalf.
Some trust in horses, chariots, and people but when you trust upon and meditate on God’s word you will find strength, security, and everything you need.
