There are times when I’m worried or stressed about something I need to get done or something that someone else needs to do. I’ve said it before that “Worry is like a rocking chair – it gives me something to do, but accomplishes nothing”. My worries and stresses can be turned over to the God of comfort. He can do anything. Check this out…12.The Lord says, “I am the one who comforts you. So why should you be afraid of people, who die? Why should you fear people who die like the grass? 13 Have you forgotten the Lord who made you, who stretched out the skies and made the earth? Why are you always afraid of those angry people who trouble you and who want to destroy? But where are those angry people now? 14 People in prison will soon be set free; they will not die in prison, and they will have enough food. 15 I am the Lord your God, who stirs the sea and makes the waves roar. My name is the Lord All-Powerful. 16 I will give you the words I want you to say. I will cover you with my hands and protect you. I made the heavens and the earth, and I say to Jerusalem, ‘You are my people.’” (Isaiah 51:12-16 NCV)
Stress and worry do not “rattle” the Lord. He can handle anything that is on my mind or in my path. He will protect and provide for His people – His kids – those whose hearts belong to Him.
There are times when we just need to climb up in His lap and sit down and rest from running, worrying or trying to fix it all. Give it to Him – He can repair, replace, rebuild – He specializes is rebuilding broken people! That comforts me.Pressing On! Dwayne
