GOD IS BY YOUR SIDE

I, even I, am He who comforts you. Who are you that you should be afraid of a man who will die, and of the son of a man who will be made like grass? Isaiah 51:12 (NKJV)

The God of all comfort can lovingly touch all heartache, despair, darkness, pain, evil, and desperation. Your tribulations are severe. Your path is hard. Your conditions are bleak. Your outlook is dim. But the God of all comfort—the God who Himself has suffered indescribably at the hands of people—will aid you, encourage you, strengthen you, and guide you.

Because Christ has experienced the ridicule and rejection of people and now stands as the Great High Priest, the throne of grace beckons every believer. If you hurt, let the healing love of Jesus Christ sustain you. He longs to comfort and encourage you with His presence, His promises, His people, and His power.

The God of all comfort will not let you go over the edge or sink beneath the mire. He will come instantly to your aid as you call on His name. One day He will use you to personally carry His comfort to the ailing heart of another—transforming your trouble into His healing balm.
