Confident In His Comfort

ConfidenceLord God I anxiously seek your comfort each day. My eyes behold the manifestation of your promises in my life. I am your son/daughter and know that you hear my prayer. I wait for your rescue that is never far away. Each day I renew my hope in your word. In the midst of sorrowful and tearful circumstances my lips praise and worship you.

Your love is unfailing and it comforts me. You have sent the Holy Spirit to abide with me and He is my helper and source of comfort. Your presence assures me of your love and peace, and restores my soul. I am encouraged by your word and consume it as my necessary food. My mind, body, soul and spirit is filled and nourished by your truth. Your promises revive me and they comfort me in all my troubles.

Lord you know every burden, trouble and weight that I must endure and you fill me with patience. Confidence in your deliverance helps me mature naturally and spiritually. In turn, I know how to minister and encourage others to live in harmony and peace. Through confidence in you I have liberty, a tender heart and a humble attitude. With one mind I sympathize with others. And I love others as my brothers and sisters. You are the God of love and peace who is always with me. You are the source of all mercy, comfort and strength. Thank you for helping me to be more confident. I praise you, the Father of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

Connect to God

crutches-habakkukOften I have heard people refer to God as a “crutch” and they use the word in a negative connotation. Sometimes it is to make light of the believer’s faith, trust and reliance on God, or give the impression that God relishes a following of zombie-like, dysfunctional people incapable of a significant life. Those who intend to mock us with usage of the word “crutch” fail to understand the utility and functionality of the crutch.

Crutches are mobility aids used to counter a mobility impairment or an injury that limits walking ability. –Definition source: Wilkipedia

When you have been afflicted and decide to change your posture and connect to God, He should be welcomed as a crutch. His promises are your support and strength to compensate for every weakness. He is a crutch to facilitate your physical and spiritual healing. He comes along side you for natural and spiritual development, change, growth, and maturity. God is your crutch for any situation. (from “Talk to God with Affirmations of Faith”)

“Even to your old age and gray hairs I am he, I am he who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you.”–Isaiah 46:4 (NIV)

A Relentless Cry

A few days ago, I was watching a video recording of one of my favorite ministers. In the middle of the sermon, a baby began to cry relentlessly for two or three minutes. I will admit that for a few moments I was a bit annoyed. A wondered, like some in the pews, why the parent didn’t take the baby out to another area. I got a little distracted from the sermon and had to replay the portion where the baby was crying. But then I got distracted again. This time it was from my own thoughts. When babies cry it is because they want something. They cry because they are hungry, need a diaper change, uncomfortable, sick or just want attention. They will cry until the need is met.

Romans 8:15 says “For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear, but ye have received the Spirit of adoption whereby we cry, Abba Father.” All of us were created to express the emotions of our soul and of our spirit with a “cry.” That cry will demand a response from something or someone greater than ourselves. God, who is the source of our spirit hears every cry of the soul and spirit. He created us to communicate that cry to Him alone.

He has told us in His Word in Matthew 4:19 “But Jesus said, Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of heaven.” He also said as long as we abide in this earth we can ask for His kingdom alternatives to come on earth as it is in heaven.

Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom. –Luke 12:22

We have permission to cry out relentlessly to God when we are hungry. He has promised to take care of us naturally because He is Jehovah-Jireh. He has promised to satiate us spiritually with the knowledge, understanding and wisdom of the bread of life… His scriptures. They instruct us with the principles to live this life on earth.

We have permission to cry out relentlessly when we are thirsty. He has given us the gift of the Holy Spirit to abide with us to quench our thirst for a comforter, helper and teacher.

We have permission to cry out relentlessly when we need our spiritual diapers changed. Through the Blood of Jesus, He has forgiven us, cleansed, sanctified, redeemed, and consecrated us to reveal His glory in us, on us and through us.

We have permission to cry out relentlessly when we are in distress. He is a banner and shield for us, a defender, covering and a hedge of protection.

We have permission to cry out relentlessly when we are sick (physically and spiritually). He is Jehovah Raphe the healer of all manner of sickness, diseases, afflictions, and infirmities.

And best of all we have permission to cry out relentlessly to Him when we just want to be in His presence. He is an omnipresent (everywhere), omnipotent (all power), omniscient (all knowing) God All Mighty.

If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. –John 15:7

So the next time you hear a baby cry relentlessly, don’t be annoyed. Just smile and remember that you too, have permission to cry out relentlessly to the Lord.
