Our Daily Bread For Your Encouragement

In Isaiah 43:2-3, God speaks these words of comfort and encouragement to his people:

“When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you. For I am the LORD your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior.” (vv.2–3 ESV)

Is there a basis for encouragement in the word of God for the trauma, pain or loss, disappointment or defeat that people are experiencing today?. How does the “encouragement of the Scriptures” give us hope?. Perhaps the greatest source of encouragement we find in the Scriptures is that in the pages of God’s Book, we discover who He is. In Romans 15:13, Paul tells us that God is the “God of hope” and if we believe in Him, He will fill us with all joy and peace so that we may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

COMFORT AND ENCOURAGEMENT
FROM THE FORGOTTEN BOOK
A young boy noticed a large, dust-covered book on a high shelf in his
home. His curiosity was aroused, so he asked his mother about it.
Embarrassed, she hastily explained, “Oh, that’s a Bible. That’s God’s
Book.” He thought for a moment and then said, “Well, Mom, if that’s God’s
Book, why don’t we give it back to Him? Nobody around here uses it.”
In many homes the Bible is seldom opened. In fact, it’s hardly noticed or even
thought about. The only time it’s read is when there’s sickness or a death in
the family. And other than the 23rd Psalm, it’s unlikely that the person knows
where to look for the help that’s needed.
How long since you’ve picked up your Bible and studied it? Yes, it is God’s
Book—but He doesn’t want it back. He wants you to keep it, to ponder it, to
understand it, to believe it, and to obey its message.

That’s the primary reason for this mini-series compiled during the Covid19
lock-down, selected messages of encouragement and comfort from Genesis
to Revelation. As you glimpse the heart of our gracious God of Comfort over
the next 66 days, may it ignite your enthusiasm to spend more and more time
at the feet of The Master.
Don’t let the Bible become the forgotten Book in your home.
Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.
—PSALM 119:105
