Yes, your spouse loves you and cares. Yes, your parents love you and cares for you. Yes, your best friend said you can talk to them about anything. Yes, your Pastor is anointed and has often spoken peace into your life, but…
But, God fixes some situations so that the only comfort you receive comes from reading His word.
That keeps us close to Him.
Have you ever opened your mouth to talk to someone, and the Spirit of the LORD stopped you…then you opened your bible instead to just the right word? You saw just the right verse on a billboard or bumper sticker?
God Himself comforted you with His word. Not through someone else this time…HIMSELF.
Have you ever talked to someone…that person closest to you, and though it helped, you still had no peace?
That’s because God wants you to talk to Him. Take take comfort in Him. He wants to be that REAL. That ALIVE. That CLOSE.
Sometimes only His word will give you peace…
Isaiah 54:17 (NKJV)
17 No weapon formed against you shall prosper,
And every tongue which rises against you in judgment
You shall condemn.
This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord,
And their righteousness is from Me,”
Says the Lord.
Deuteronomy 31:6 (NKJV)
6 Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the Lord your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.”
John 16:33 (NKJV)
33 These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will[a] have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”
Psalm 23 (NKJV)
The Lord is my shepherd;
I shall not want.
2 He makes me to lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside the still waters.
3 He restores my soul;
He leads me in the paths of righteousness
For His name’s sake.
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil;
For You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You anoint my head with oil;
My cup runs over.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
All the days of my life;
And I will dwell[a] in the house of the Lord
