Where does comfort come from?

January 11, 2021

During this time of upheaval in our nation and in the world, it’s easy to look at the storm clouds and the waves and grow fearful. But we have a God who can calm the storms and calm our fears if we look toward Him. One of the most repeated phrases in the Bible is “Fear Not”. Why would God need to say this to us more than 300 times? Simple… because He knows we tend to be fearful, especially when things are out of our control. Isaiah, quoting the Lord Almighty reminds us of the following in Chapter 51:

12 “I, even I, am He who comforts you.

Who are you that you are afraid of man who dies

And of the son of man who is made like grass,

13 That you have forgotten the Lord your Maker,

Who stretched out the heavens

And laid the foundations of the earth,

That you fear continually all day long because of the fury of the oppressor, as he makes ready to destroy?

But where is the fury of the oppressor?"

Isaiah 51:12-13 ESV

So when you are fearful, lean into the comfort of the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth. He is strong enough to overcome all fears and everything that makes you afraid. May God bless you all in 2021!
