Restoring comfort

Hi, God’s word for me today is in Isaiah 57:18-19 which say, “I have seen his ways, but I will heal him; I will guide him and restore comfort to him, creating praise on the lips of the mourners of Israel.”

What does he mean “his ways”? Look in the context (the verses around this one). If you look in the context it is talking about someone who is contrite, guilty. The Lord (through Isaiah) is saying that He has seen his (the contrite persons) ways and that He is going to restore him and comfort Him. And He does the same for us, He restores us, how? By Jesus death on the cross! He died on the cross to save us from our sins, thank you Jesus.

Jesus died for us so that we don’t have to, He comforted us. But He didn’t only comfort us at the cross, but when we need comforting. If we call to Jesus He will answer us, but that doesn’t mean He is going to answer as soon as we want Him to, if He doesn’t do it righ away then He might be holding it back for your sake. God comforts us when we need to be comforted.

God is the God of all comfort, ”

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.

God is the God of all comfort and He will comfort us, but He also puts us through trials and temptations, although it isn’t Him who puts us through temptations it’s the devil. “

No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.

Are you trusting in God and that He is the God of comfort?

Grace and truth, Charity Cleveland.
