“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.” Hebrews 13:8
Most recently I asked the Holy Spirit for clarity on a guy situation. I needed answers and wanted to make a sound decision and not be swayed by emotions. One of my love languages is words of affirmation. So when this person was telling me nice things I thought for a second “Oh yea I should give them a chance.” And while these words sounded nice I knew I couldn’t make a decision on emotions alone; so I sought God.
“and if you call out for insight and cry aloud for understanding, and you look for it as for silver and search for it as for hidden treasure, then you will understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God. For the Lord gives wisdom, and from his mouth come knowledge and understanding.” Proverbs 2: 3-6
I wasn’t in a hurry to hear back but I knew within the day that that person was not for me. While I’m alone, I’m not lonely.
“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.” 2 Corinthians 3-4.
Here’s what some of my Bible’s commentary says on this verse: “We must understand being comforted can also mean receiving strength, encouragement, and hope to deal with our troubles. The more we suffer, the more comfort God gives us. If you are feeling overwhelmed, allow God to comfort you. Remember that every trial you endure will help you comfort other people who are suffering similar troubles.
