Jesus knew the kind of World that we would be living in before He promised He was going to send a COMFORTER. It's a world flowing with milk and honey but yet consumes its inhabitants.

Why a Comforter and not Someone or Something else? Because we would ever need comfort. People are going to inflict us with pains, dejection is going to take its toll on us.

Friends are going to get on our nerves, disappoint, neglect, deny us, thereby hurting us badly. The one you trust so much is probably going to fail you; you are going to freely gain a gift of betrayal from the one to whom you've given the key of your heart. Lovers are going to jilt some and some others will have their hearts broken. There are yet some that are going to pay evil for the good you've done to them.

Even the world is just fond of taking our loved ones away and make us cry, making good turn worst, creating fear, agony, doubts, broken homes and many others in their numbers.

He knew all these so He promised to send a COMFORTER to be with us FOREVER. He knew we would need comfort. And did He send Him? Yea! He- The Holy Spirit is with us right now.

Evidently, satan is not going to do any good than bad. He is the roaring lion going to and fro "SEEKING" for whom to devour. Relax now, Not you!
Comfortless? Come unto Him
for "A broken Spirit and I contrite heart, He will not despise."

He sure understands those secret pains you can't share with people that they don't help increase it the more. You can trust Him for Real for He is the real friend.
He has not forgotten you. Tell it to Him today... He's not going to charge you- it's free! When you turn to God, you find the surest comfort.

"Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; Who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted of God." (2 Corinthians 1:3-4). You've got comfort? Comfort others!

Today, I pray comfort to every area of your life where comfort seems to have bid its farewell. Recieve it today. Amen.

Sing this Hymn with me:
"What a Friend we have in Jesus,
All our sins and grief to bear,
What a privilege to carry
Everything to God in Prayer.
Oh what peace we often forfeit
O what needless pain we bear
All because we do not carry
Everything to God in Prayer.

2. Have we trials and temptation!
Is there trouble anywhere?
We should never be discouraged
Take it to the Lord in prayer,
Can we find a friend so faithful
Who will all our Sorrows share?
Jesus knows our every weakness;
Take it to the Lord in prayer.

3. Are we weak and heavy-laden,
Cumbered with a load of care
Precious Saviour, still our refuge
Take it to the Lord in Prayer
Do thy friends despise, forsake thee?
Take it to the Lord in prayer
In His arms He'l take and shield thee
Thou wilt find a solace there."
