STRUGGLING IN LIFE ?..LET ME TAKE YOU TO THE COMFORTER.
If you were able to read my last week's blog, you know I had suggested taking a scripture that you are singling out of your devotional time and using that all week as your " word and staple for the week".
This week I have chosen the scripture from John 11:40. You will know the story of Mary, Martha, and their brother Lazarus.
I'm sharing this particular scripture because it applies as a comfort to my very hard week. Many know I am recovering from a major hip replacement, and that is going much better, except for good quality sleep.
But as Christ believers, we are aware of how Satan loves to attack the child of God.
Yep! he made sure that there was other chaos going on. I know that even then, my God has to allow it, so I rest in His Sovereignty.
My number 2 son's wife, who has had a life of surgeries (and she's only 37,) had a sickness that went on for a couple of weeks. Then with her resistance very down, she caught Covid-19 from her office personnel. This began an extended time of sickness with several rough times
But, because I believe, I know that God has not left us comfortless. He tells us in John 16:7 as Jesus would go away, he would send the comforter, the Holy Spirit. And we also learn that in Hebrews 4:15, " for we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one that who has been tempted in every way, just as we are- yet He did not sin." That's the comforter that I want to bring you to in your time of struggles.
The reason I cling to my scripture that I said would be my scripture for this whole week, John 11:40 is that it tells me like it did Mary and Martha, I can expect a MIRACLE. Praise God!
We are told that if we believe we WILL see the glory of God. What a comforter is Jesus Christ my Lord.
When Satan brings doubt, I say, " did I not say that if you would believe, you would see the glory of God". John 11:40. When more bad news comes, I say again, John 11:40
Friends, we have the Holy Spirit our COMFORTER, and I know, that I know, He will not leave me comfortless. Come to Jesus as your Savior, then you will know that when life hands you struggles, and it will, you have the one that will be your comforter to run to.
I hope you'll find your verse from your devotional time that will be your verse for all week.
Then meditate on it, breathe it in, cling to it with all your heart. Let it bring you to the COMFORTER. I am praying for you.
