The Believers Comfort
Believers find comfort in many things. Many professing Christians find comfort in Scripture (the Bible), in reading the writings of others, in listening to the testimony of others, in listening to preachers. But a true disciple, a follower of Jesus Christ does not find comfort in what he believes, his comfort comes from his relationship with Jesus Christ. His comfort comes from the guidance and discipline of the Holy Spirit.
In the 23rd psalm David writes:"Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me." The discipline and guidance of the Holy Spirit comforts the disciple because the Holy Spirit guides us, teaches us, corrects us and tells us all things that we need to know and need to do to be pleasing to our Master Jesus Christ.
If we find comfort from anything but the guidance of the Holy Spirit then we do not truly know Jesus Christ. Then we do not have the Holy Spirit. He gives His Holy Spirit in those who obey Him and who seek Him, who are serious about the kingdom of God. Do you receive your comfort from the Master's voice, the Holy Spirit speaking to you, disciplining and guiding you or do you take comfort form other things? If your relationship with Jesus Christ is not REAL you are only fooling yourself.
Seek Jesus, KNOW His voice, FOLLOW Him and OBEY Him and you will have the comfort of the Holy Spirit.
May Jesus bless you.
