I’ve told you that I’m a comfort addict. Therefore, I’m also sort of an expert on comfort. I’ve studied it for years. And I can tell you beyond a doubt that the truth is a comfort.
Find Comfort in the Truth
Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
Matthew 11:28-29 NIV
Jesus tells us in John 14:6 that He is the truth. So, if you are weary and burdened, if this life is getting you down, seek the truth. It will give you rest.
The truth is always found in God. Go to Him. Go to His Word.
So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” John 8:31-32 ESV
Get alone with God and you will find the truth. Spend some time with Him and take your Bible with you. He has a way of making the truth come to light. And the truth will comfort you. It will give you clear direction to follow.
The truth is steady. It is unwavering. It is reliable. The truth teaches us. It gives guidance and direction. Often, when we are down, all we really need is clarity and a little direction. That is exactly what you will find when you seek Jesus.
The Only Comfort Food You Need
They all ate the same spiritual food and drank the same spiritual drink; for they drank from the spiritual rock that accompanied them, and that rock was Christ. 1 Corinthians 10:3-4 NIV
Jesus is the rock. He is the truth. Put your confidence in Jesus and you will never be disappointed. Fill your mind with the truth of Jesus and you will be comforted.
