My Daily Devotional

God Is Our Comfort

“Be still, and know that I am God”
Psalm 46:10

I can remember one night when my youngest son wrecked on his bicycle and we had to take him to the hospital for stitches. As the doctors began to suture my son’s head, my other son slumped to the floor, as he faints easily when he sees blood. What can you do when you are about to faint physically? You can’t do anything. In your weakness you just fall upon the shoulders of some strong loved one, and rest until your strength returns. The same is true when you are faced with the challenges and adversities of life. The Lord’s message to us is ‘Be still, and know that I am God’. In order to test our faith, God sometimes permits us to go through discouraging situations and seasons of adversities. During these times we must resist giving up in despair, and just lie still in God’s arms like a child. Like Jonah in the belly of the fish, we must turn to the Lord when our soul is fainting within us, and trust Him completely to keep us. “When my soul fainted within me I remembered the LORD: and my prayer came in unto thee, into thine holy temple” (Jonah 2:7). The Apostle Paul calls these life challenges, “light affliction” and that means that they will last for a “moment” but in the end “worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory.” Knowing that our burdens are temporary enables us to bear them with a victorious outlook. In those seasons of desperation, when it seems that you can’t go on any longer, remember that God’s everlasting arms are underneath you to support you. Just lie still in God’s strong arms like a child and trust Him, and you will find strength to carry on again. It has worked for me during my life, and I am able to encourage you because we can only comfort others with the same comfort we have received from our Heavenly Father who comforts us in all our troubles. Just have faith and “Be still, and know that I am God”.
