It seems when we get into a bind or are pushed beyond our comfort levels we tend to forget we have supernatural help available. Why is that? Perhaps we’re afraid or too focused on what’s happening and not tapping into God’s power in us.
I challenge you to be equipped when you encounter times of discomfort in any situation that comes. No matter your age, you’ll experience these times because it’s part of life, of maturing.
I want you to cement the truths of the following verses in your heart today so you’ll be equipped. Don’t just read them and go on. Meditate on the truth they give.
Let God’s Word come alive in your heart. The more you apply God’s Word, the more you’ll see its power working IN you!
Isaiah 66:13, NASB says, “As one whom his mother comforts, so I will comfort you”. (This was spoken to Israel but also God’s promise to you as His child).
Psalm 23:4, NASB, “Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.”
Psalm 119;49-50, NASB, “Remember the word to Your servant, In which You have made me hope. This is my comfort in my misery, That your word has revived me.” (Recognize that God’s Word provides hope and comfort and will revive you).
2 Thessalonians 2:16-17, NASB, “Now may our Lord Jesus Christ Himself and God our Father, who has loved us and given us eternal comfort and good hope by grace, comfort and strengthen your hearts in every good work and word.” (He is not only our comforter today, tomorrow, and whenever needed. Notice he gives comfort to our hearts).
2 Corinthians 1:2-4, NASB, “2Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 3Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, 4who comforts us in all our affliction so that we will be able to comfort those who are in any affliction with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.”
