The God of Comfort (Written By: Joel Osteen)

“As a mother   comforts her child, so will I comfort you…”
(Isaiah 66:13, NIV)
TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria
Oftentimes, when people face   challenges, they seek comfort by surrounding themselves with things that are   familiar. It may be work, a sport or hobby; it may be relationships; or of   course, we all know about comfort food. But those things are only temporary,   and they can only bring temporary comfort. True, lasting comfort is   available, and it’s only found in a personal relationship with God, the   Father through our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

According to Webster’s   dictionary, comfort means to give strength and hope; to ease grief or   trouble. No matter what difficulty you may be facing today, God wants to   bring you comfort. Like a mother cares for her child, He longs to give you   strength, hope and confidence. Make the decision to put Him first in every area   of your life. Let go of those things you know are holding you back. Let Him   be Lord over all! As you surrender to His grace, you will be filled with His   peace and joy. You’ll be empowered to overcome every obstacle, and you will   live in victory all the days of your life.

Father in heaven, I   come to You today and invite You to fill my whole being. Give me Your lasting   comfort and strength. Empower me by Your Holy Spirit to live in the victory   You have established for me in Jesus’ name. Amen.
— Joel &   Victoria Osteen
