Christ Our Comfort

21 But you, Sovereign Lord, help me for your name’s sake; out of the goodness of your love, deliver me.
22 For I am poor and needy, and my heart is wounded within me.
23 I fade away like an evening shadow; I am shaken off like a locust.
24 My knees give way from fasting; my body is thin and gaunt.
25 I am an object of scorn to my accusers; when they see me, they shake their heads. Psalm 199:21-25

David ended this psalm with words of exhortation and encouragement. He knew where his help and sufficiency lay, He also knew that God was – and still is – sovereign in the world.

A week ago I was sitting on a beach watching the waves move in and out.
No cares.
No worries.
Nothing to boast about.
Compared to the massive volume of water in one ocean, we are very very small. And this a work of God’s creation! Think about that for a second.

It’s comforting to know that we can rely on Christ for our comfort, our encouragement, and our strength. If we were so inclined, there is a lot in this world we could worry and fret over.

But we don’t need to.

At all.
