Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, - 2 Corinthians 1:3
This has been my theme verse for the past 2 weeks now. The Lord knows everything about us that as I wrestle with worries and anxiety on this 40 Days of Blessing Others until my birthday, Oct. 17th and the big OCC shoebox packing party I'm having on Oct. 15th plus the hurt I'm feeling towards my friend, God has been comforting me with His messages. Here's a few...
Sunday's devotional had (9/11):
God will encourage you! As you pour out your heart to Him, He will say to you, as He did to His disciples when He was here on earth, "Take courage! It is I. Don't be afraid" (Matthew 14:27)
Yesterday's devotional had (9/12):
God is not merely an empathetic listener. You may feel better just for having verbalized your troubles, but God doesn't stop there. He says: "I am the Lord, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you" (Isaiah 41:13)
Today's devotional (9/13):
Help - that's what you need! If you bow your heart in prayer to Him right now, the God who cares for you will listen - and encourage you - and help you find a solution. He promises!
Feels so good to call on God without any busy signal and to pour out your heart to Him without Him ignoring you or neglecting you. In His divine way, He makes His answers known. Whether through someone or something, you can rest assure He will be there when you need Him the most.
Thank you Lord for your love. Though I don't deserve it, you give it to me freely.
May you, reading this, take heart that God loves you and is crazy about you. Pour your heart to Him, you will know what I'm talking about :)
