God – Our Comforter and Sustainer

This morning, if you are tired, weary, restless, or you have a fear of something new or unknown, take comfort in these words of scripture:

Psalm 62 5-6: Find rest, O my soul, in God alone; my hope comes from him. He alone is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will not be shaken. (NIV)

Psalm 63:7-8: Because you are my help, I sing in the shadow of your wings. My soul clings to you; your right hand upholds me. (NIV)

If you know God, but you struggle through life, wondering if God is paying attention to your needs, perhaps asking yourself, “Does God really care about me?” If you are struggling with these questions this morning, find contentment in these words of scripture:

If you are seeking the things of this world instead of God, take notice of the words from this psalm of David:

Psalm 63:1: O God, you are my God, earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you, my body longs for you, in a dry and weary land where there is no water. (NIV)

If you have felt God’s love and presence in your life, rejoice in this word of scripture:

Psalm 63:3-4: Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you. I will praise you as long as I live, and in your name I will lift up my hands. (NIV)

If you believe that God is still in charge and is ruler of both heaven and earth, then open your heart to these psalms of praise:

Psalm 66:1-4: Shout with joy to God, all the earth! Sing the glory of his name; make his praise glorious! Say to God, “How awesome are your deeds! So great is your power that your enemies cringe before you. All the earth bows down to you; they sing praise to you, they sing praise to your name. (NIV)

Psalm 67: 1-4: May God be gracious to us and bless us and make his face shine upon us, that your ways may be known on earth your salvation among all nations. May the peoples praise you, O God; may all the peoples praise you. May the nations be glad and sing for joy, for you rule the peoples justly and guide the nations of the earth. (NIV)
