The Word of God Comforts Me

I have been gaining comfort from the Word of God.  It has been my source of great strength and comfort since my mama passed into eternity on August 7.  The places that have been the greatest comfort have been Psalm 116.  John 11.  Romans 8.  1 Corinthians 15.  1 Thessalonians 4:13-18.  Revelation 21-22.

Isn’t it amazing how the Lord uses the Scriptures to comfort us when we face trials or when we mourn.  Just today the Holy Spirit brought to my memory that wonderful truth in Matthew 5:4, “Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.”  I needed that word from God.  I needed to know that He still comforts us when we mourn.  He is near to the brokenhearted (Psalm 34:18) and the Scriptures even say that He heals the brokenhearted (Psalm 147:3).  Isaiah 61:1 says that part of the ministry of the Messiah would be to bind up the brokenhearted.  I need Jesus now to do that for me.  Thankfully, His Word is true (John 17:17) and He will comfort me (2 Corinthians 1:3-5).  

My eyes are on Him!
