There have been times in my life where I have felt all alone. Most of the time I wasn’t really alone but instead was deceived by the enemy, but the aloneness felt so real. In those moments, especially, my spirit hungered for truth while my flesh was in anguish.
Where was my comfort? Where was my strength when my bones ached with sorrow? The deception and darkness was so great that I couldn’t see the light and refused to seek counsel. Who would rescue my from my despair?
We know the Holy Spirit has many roles including being a helper, comforter and teacher reminding us of God’s instruction:
“But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you.” ~ John 14:26 NASB
But what do we do when even He seems far off?There are times where the only thing we have to cling to is God’s word and His promises so we must preach to, and comfort ourselves with His word.
Brothers and sisters, we must be ready for these times! We know not when these times of drought will happen. His word must be implanted in our memory so as to be ready for preaching to ourselves in any occasion.
Get a reading plan today and begin storing up the treasures of His word. For it is this powerful truth that will comfort us in the time of trial.
Gracious Father, You have given us everything we need to walk according to Your way. Fill us with Your word that we may be revived according to Your lovingkindness. In those times of deception, May we preach Your word to ourselves that our countenance and vision would be restored. We love You LORD, in Jesus, Amen
