Let Not Your Heart be Troubled
Prov. 15:33. The fear of the Lord is the instruction of wisdom: and before honor is humility.
Psalms 119:49. Remember the word unto thy servant, upon which thou hast caused me to hope.
50. This is my comfort in my affliction: for thy word hath quickened me.
John 14:15. If ye love me, keep my commandments.
16. And I will pray the Father, and He shall give you another comforter, that He may abide with you forever:
17. 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.
18. I will not leave you comfortless; I will come to you.
27. Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
The words of comfort Christ brings are enduring and encouraging for the walk of faith. To think how powerful the presence of the Holy Spirit with us truly is and that Christ’s promise of not leaving us alone is so uplifting and positive. The apostle Paul stated it well:
Rom. 8:26. Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession with groanings which cannot be uttered.
To have the presence of the Holy Spirit with us is the comfort Christ promised. And it is here with us and we have all the things Christ said brought to our awareness as we are in need. How Great a God is our God who loves us in such ways!
May God’s grace and mercy bless each of you this day and we rejoice in so great a salvation.
