Maybe right now we don’t feel like we can rejoice. That’s okay. But instead of rejoicing, we can still “be of good comfort.” Our dear Father in Heaven is still there. He’s still listening to us.
Mothers have a powerful understanding of Christ – and His sacrifice.
How many times in the scriptures are the words “Fear not” spoken by Jesus Christ? He speaks it like it’s a simple thing, like there’s an On/Off switch that can stop the fear we feel. So is He wrong? Or can it really be as simple as Christ makes it sound?
The way we think can be very different from how God thinks. We face challenges in our lives and wonder how God could punish us with those difficulties. God, on the other hand, understands how those challenges will actually benefit us.
We can be prepared by Christ and for Christ as we focus on building a personal relationship with Him.
It may seem like Christ is distant, that He isn’t coming, and that it’s too late for Him to help you anyway. But He isn’t far away, He is coming, and it’s never too late for Him to help you.
God gives us a lot – but not all of it is blessings. And realizing that can change the way we serve Him.
