'WHERE DO YOU FIND COMFORT?'

"When I am hurting, I find comfort in Your promise that leads to life" - (Psalm 119:50, CEV)
.
A man becomes hurt in life when he has his hope dashed, delayed or he grieves over a situation. There are certain moments in the life of everyone that they tend to be in their low moments.
.
Where do you find comfort whenever you're hurting? Many people abuse drugs, alcohol, sex and so on. Some engage in social vices in other to find relief to their life's issues. Can any of these give you life? In fact it destroys life faster.
.
The best place to find comfort in any situation is in the word of God (Ps. 119:50). What and where you put your hope in determines the kind of comfort you'd get. God's word is the best place to get succor when you're hurting in life.
.
This is why He told us to cast all our cares upon Him because He can shoulder them (Psalm 55:22). Don't run to man first to find comfort but Jesus is a friend you can run to.
.
How do I do that? Take that situation to the Lord in prayer. Put your hope and trust in Him so that His word can give you life and courage to forge ahead.
.
Is that joblessness, health issues, marital delay, financial needs hurting your soul badly? Don't run to man for comfort but come to Him for the relief that your soul needs (Matt. 11:28). All that you need is to put your trust (Jer. 17:7) and hope in Him (Ps. 130:5). Can you give Him a try over that situation?
.
And do not forget that while we're in this world, we'll have tribulation (John 16:33) but in Him only, we will have peace and not the type that the world gives (John 14:27).
