2 Timothy 3:16 says” All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
When you think of comfort what comes to your mind? No, seriously think about it before you answer. Is comfort to you about being secure? Is it having things line up and in order? If it is then I hate to be the bare of bad news today, for comfort is neither of those or what we think it is. Comfort is this, the Bible is the word of God and is powerful and life changing. The promises of God start with when God tells us that all Scriptures in the Bible are inspired by God.
The reason we are misunderstood about comfort is the fact that we aren’t relying on this very scripture of God. When we are left with not feeling sure of things or not having the ability within ourselves to fix it, we find no comfort, which brings on impatience. Impatience breeds a little bit of arrogance now and then. This is why we feel that it was a waste of time, we lose energy and our focus; and began to question God. But if we would start by taking the comfort of God and His word and stop comparing ourselves to everything else. We will learn to embrace comfort and no longer live in the state of misunderstanding comfort.
Our biggest problem is ourselves, it’s how we process our thoughts, we expect things to be smooth sailing no storms at all. We believe that when things are well in our lives then we are living in true comfort, but the moment the earth shakes our foundation then we no longer living in comfort. That my friends is not living in comfort. Comfort is knowing not your ability but knowing His, God’s ability. Start doing that and when the storms comes you can say “I am living in comfort” it’s like anything else you just have to make up a made up mind to trust God. So embrace comfort today and every day, things will be much better for you when you do.
Happy Valentine’s Day to all of YOU!
