26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you. John 14:26 NKJV
26 But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me: John 15:26 NKJV
4 For whatever things were written before were written for our learning, that we through the patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope. Romans 15:4 NKJV
I love my bible, my coffee, and my Birdie! We all have places we draw comfort from in natural and spiritual things. Hopefully you have found the true Comfort that comes from God alone through His Word, His Holy Spirit, and His Truth. The greatest comfort there is for me is the Holy Spirit doing what only He can do in my heart. He makes the Word come alive! This relevancy found in the “aha moments,” of my quiet time truly ignites my passion and purpose to carry on without burnout and frustration taking over.
I have never enjoyed being around people who are not honest with me. And I find nothing more beautiful than a person who is honest with themselves. I love honesty and truthfulness in relationships. But I crave spiritual Truth. That place where I know God is speaking His heart to me personally through His Word and the Person of the Holy Spirit. When God reveals His truth to me, I find strength and focus to live with a sense of belonging to something and someone much bigger than myself. God is big and His Kingdom is huge! Sometimes we can feel insignificant and overwhelmed. But somehow, when the Holy Spirit comforts me through scripture and revelation knowledge, I find my place in the big picture that gives my soul relief and confirmation that I am right where I am suppose to be, doing just what He intended me to do.
There is nothing more frustrating than trying to comfort someone who refuses to be comforted. It is heartbreaking to watch that type of grief and suffering in a inconsolable soul. You can not force comfort, it must be welcomed and received through an open heart. Make sure you open your heart today and receive a good strong dose of Comfort from the Holy Spirit; it is His primary assignment and He will not force this gift upon you.
