Need comfort? Then stop looking in the wrong places. Look in the right one. The ice cream container will only get you so far. Straight to the bottom of the container and a couple of pounds up on the scale. The next cold can of beer will quench your thirst – for a few minutes. In fact, nothing in the world will give you any lasting comfort, not for more than as long as worldly temptation and pleasure lasts anyway. And it certainly won’t give you any true, genuine, sincere, quality, comfort. There is no comfort that comes even remotely close to the comfort offered by the God of all comfort. But God will not force His comfort on you. He gives you the choice – between the “comforts” of the world and the comfort of Himself, and of His everlasting love through faith in Jesus Christ.

Maybe you’re not ready to set down the spoon. And maybe you’re quite certain you’re going to finish off the day with another carton of double mint chocolate chip ice cream. Perhaps you’re not ready to give up alcohol, but you’re pretty darned close. Or maybe you’ve already given up all your worldly comforts and are simply waiting to figure out how to find the comfort that will satisfy you in a way you’ve never been satisfied. No matter where you are, or how you are doing, if you need comfort, seek and find the Lord and His.

His comfort. His love. His mercy. His peace. His hope. His faith. His trust. His promises. His compassion. His kindness. His tenderness. His patience. His long-suffering. His salvation. His deliverance. His Truth. His Word. His voice. His beckoning you. His calling you. His reaching out to you. His drawing you to Himself. His grace. His refuge. His secret place. His hiding place. His place of rest. His comfort that so far surpasses anything any human being or any thing can possibly offer that once you know His comfort, you know that you know that you know – His is the very best.

His comfort. Are you ready?

 “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Romans 10:13 KJV

“Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.” 2 Corinthians 1: 3-4 KJV
