Where do I run to for comfort when things are tough? Is it the fridge, a chocolate bar or something else?
Instead, when trouble comes choose to be like the psalmist and remember the promises God has given you! And if you can’t think of any, well there is loads of promises God has given to his people in his word!
When I was looking for a job and applying left, right and centre all over the place only to get interviews but not get any offers was, if I dwelt on those things, heart breaking. It wasn’t until I stopped took time out, stood back and sought the Lord. Proverbs gives us wise advice, to trust in him and lean not on our own understanding and to acknowledge him in all our ways (Prov 3:5&6) He reminded me back to the promises he gave me, ulimately to know God better, to have hope for the future…
Ultimately leaning on God’s promises not only bring us great comfort, but revive our hearts!
Today, if you’re feeling down – Lean on Him, remember his promise to you never to leave you nor fosake you! Allow his promise to both comfort and revive your heart!
