Comfort Is Promised On Time With God

 Some  Unsaved Friends Lacks Sincerity

“In my distress, I called to the LORD; I cried to my God for help. From his temple he heard my voice; my cry came before him, into his ears” (Psalm 18:6 NIV).

Foreword: Dear Brethren, we will be taking up the discussion on the mark of the Beast in the coming weeks. The Lord laid it on Charis’ heart to share some of her experiences and we pray this will serve as an encouragement to those who are afflicted.

During my struggle that plagued most of my week, I realized that human comfort is temporal and it is not enduring, like David I turn to God Almighty (1 Samuel 30:6; Lamentations 3:19-66). These are the scriptures God gave me after I experienced one tough week. Probably the hardest I’ve faced in the work environment to date.

During this tough week, I was faced with false accusations, I faced being betrayed by people with whom I thought I shared one understanding (Psalm 41:9) and being humiliated in public. All these things, accompanied by unwanted feelings of rejection and failure it slowly broke me into pieces, but the Lord kept telling me to read Lamentations 3:57, which reads ‘’You answered me and told me not to be afraid.’’

You Need God To Heal Your Broken Heart

Furthermore, being at home and in the presence of my loving and supporting family, I smiled and kept my composure, but behind closed doors when I go into my room, I was suffering from unwanted feelings following me. So penetrating was the humiliation I faced, nightmares had me screaming in my sleep! In the midst of this, I heard the Lord said, “You are human and so are those who are hurting you and you need not fear man”.

In conclusion, was I scared? Absolutely so! During this ordeal I kept everything to myself until I couldn’t bear it any longer (Genesis 45:1). I opened up my soul to Our Father in Heaven and by His penetrating Presence, His Peace and reassurance like a refreshing wind the pain in my soul was healed and I felt much better and renewed inside.

In addition, as an encouragement, Brothers and sisters, give vent to God. I cried before Him and he gave me an everlasting peace, such a peace that I prayed so hard for, and those who mocked me I felt like I could hug them!

Thus, as my prayer, I would want everyone to feel this kind of peace. In my own limited vocabulary, all I can say is that it’s simply indescribable it felt like a hug from God and he automatically instilled that peace and joy in me. Thus we ought to fear God only and not objects, man or even the devil but God alone (Romans 8:38-39).

By considering such soul-healing love this fresh reminder had me dancing last night around 19:00 pm, rejoicing and praising His name and as a result I am praying that the Lord be protecting  this joy He deposited in my heart and that He be protecting this peace surely the Almighty God is my defender.

Finally, I repeat fear nothing, for there is comfort in Him, on time, every time.  

With Love
