Receiving comfort can be one of the most difficult things we do. Take a moment and fill your heart with the truth of His comfort. You’ll never be the same. Enjoy this excerpt from Author, Apostle and Senior Pastor Brandy Helton’s book Walk With Me In White.
To comfort: “a state of physical ease in freedom from pain or constraint; prosperity in the pleasant lifestyle secured by it; easing or alleviation of a person’s feelings of grief or distress; to console; to improve the mood of or restore a sense of well-being; to support; strengthen; physical ease.”
The Lord Jesus told His disciples that after He left and returned to Heaven, the Father would send Holy Spirit the Comforter, the Helper to them. He did not intend for them to be fearful because He would never leave them as orphans. Jesus told us Holy Spirit would be our helper, guide, and teacher and would lead us into all truth. Holy Spirit is God. He is a helper. He is perfect comfort. He teaches us all things. He reveals Jesus. He listens. He guides. He protects. He follows. He anoints. He empowers. He fills our mouths with God’s words. He consoles. Holy Spirit comforts us in our walk with God, in and through all trials, tribulations, and difficulties in life. He is within us. He never leaves us.
He is like a warm blanket that covers us at all times. We are kept in the blanket of His comfort at all times. As we receive His comfort, the Lord will use us to comfort others. It’s like a person who is shivering in the cold and someone walks up and gives them the warmest, thickest blanket ever.
As believers, we need to learn how to receive the comfort of Holy Spirit ourselves. Allow Him to come and wrap Himself around you. Allow Him to take all the cares, burdens, worries, fears, troubles, and restlessness from you. Pray in the spirit and be thankful knowing that Holy Spirit KNOWS what you have need of and He will give you the very thing you need at that very moment! Give freely to others the comfort you are receiving.
“Then the churches throughout all Judea, Galilee, and Samaria had peace and were edified. And walking in the fear of the Lord and in the comfort of the Holy Spirit, they were multiplied” (Acts 9:31).
“Now may our Lord Jesus Christ Himself, and our God and Father, who has loved us and given us everlasting consolation and good hope by grace, comfort your hearts and establish you in every good word and work” (2 Thessalonians 2:16-17).
“Father, in Jesus’ name, we thank You for Holy Spirit, our Comforter, and Helper. Thank You for continual fellowship and love and relationship with Holy Spirit and that He abides within us forever! Thank You, Father, that He will never leave us. He is the Spirit of Truth. Thank You for caring, Father, about everything in our lives. You have not forsaken us. We choose right now to give You all discomfort, all troubles, worries, burdens, yokes, concerns, grief, sadness, sufferings and physical pain. We command it all to leave now in Jesus’ name and we choose to be comforted! Comfort us in our weakness, Lord! Comfort us and steady our hearts always to believe You. You are our God! In Jesus’ name.”
“Finally, brethren, farewell. Become complete. Be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace will be with you” (2 Corinthians 13:11).
