Today's reading: Psalm 119:49-56 (Zayin)
The older and wiser I get, both physically and spiritually, the more I realize and appreciate how I can take FULL comfort in God's Word. As I'm sure you've experienced, life isn’t all smooth sailing. More often than not, difficult circumstances seem to be waiting around the corner.
In verse 50 the psalmist declares that God's promises give him comfort in the middle of affliction. In verse 54 the psalmist then recalls how God's statutes have been his "songs." This message served to comfort me this morning. Thank you, God for Your incredible love and for comforting us through Your life-giving Word!
Is it your practice to turn to God's Word for comfort? How has God's Word been a comfort to you in the past? Do you have a favorite "comfort" passage, story or verse that you turn to in difficult times (one of mine is Psalm 25)? Tami
