I, even I, am he who comforts you. Who are you that you fear mortal men, the sons of men, who are but grass. Isaiah 51:12
When God is our comfort, what do we have to fear? Nothing. And yet, we fear a lot.
- We fear about not having enough money “to make ends meet.”
- We fear about the type of society our children are growing up in.
- We fear that the global economy will come crashing around us.
- We fear old age.
- We fear death.
- We even fear that God doesn’t love us sometimes.
We could easily add to the list if we're honest with ourselves. The list is as real as our fears. However, the God who set the mountains and lakes in place, the God who threw out the stars in the heavens and sprinkled the sand on the beaches, the God who knows the number of water molecules in all of the oceans, yes, that same God will comfort us.
Sometimes we just need to ask. Often it’s the hardest thing to do.
