Our Gift, the Comforter.

      Singing over a sick family member, I gained a better understanding of God’s heart in Zephaniah 3:17. God’s peace entered the room, and she was able to rest. I’m was reminded of God’s ability and desire to calm us in painful and difficult situations. The Word even describes God’s desire for Jerusalem to be like a mother hen who wants to gather in her chicks.
Peace is a precious thing and it’s our portion in Christ. The Holy Spirit was sent as our Gift, our Comforter. God has promised to never leave us comfortless like orphans, to ALWAYS be with us, to NEVER forsake us.
I know what inner turmoil feels like, to question where God is, to feel inconsolable. But every time, Peace found me. To most the “singing” is inaudible, sometimes it seems to delay, sometimes His presence is intangible. But He does sing and He does come.
Peace comes.
Prayer
God, I pray for Your perfect peace to rest on the person reading this. You are aware of everything we go through, Your eyes are always on us. Thank You for Your promise to never leave us, You are an ever-present help! Even when we don’t feel You near, help us to lean on this truth.

“And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.”
