By receiving the comfort of GOD you can be happy after a loss, after a broken heart. You experience that not only by remember that GOD is aware and GOD cares but also that GOD wants to help you out.
Hebrews 4.16 (NIV), “Let us approach GOD with confidence, so we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.”
GOD not only offers us awareness, HE offers us assistance. GOD not only cares about your hurt, HE wants to help you with your hurt. HE doesn’t just write you a note, “I’m thinking of you in this time.”
Matthew 5.4 (TEV) “Happy are those who mourn. GOD will be comfort them.”
The word “comfort” comes from the word “confortus” – Old English “with strength”. GOD wants to strengthen you and give you comfort.
Some people grow through their pain and some people get stuck in their pain. Some people go on through their hurt and some get stuck in their hurt and never get past it.
First of all, realize that GOD is with me. HE cares, HE’s aware, HE wants to help me.
Just a thought from the front porch…
