I Take Comfort in God’s Attributes
March has been a sad month. Once again, death has taken another loved one from my life. Yet, I take comfort in God’s attributes. I started reading through the Psalms looking for them. Here is what I found from a select few.
Comfort is Found in Your Attributes, Lord!
I take comfort knowing that You know the way of the righteous (Psalm 1:6).
You are my refuge and a shield about me. You are my glory and the lifter of my head when I am downcast (Psalm 2:12b; 3:3).
It is comforting to know that You uphold all who are falling and raise up all who are bowed down (Psalm 145:14).
You only need to open Your hand to satisfy the desire of every living thing (Psalm 145:16).
You are righteous in all Your ways and kind in all Your works (Psalm 145:17).
The greatest comfort is knowing that You are near to all who call on You, to all who call on You in truth (Psalm 145:18).
You fulfill the desire of those who fear You; You also hear them when they cry and save them (Psalm 145:19).
These are but a few of Your many wonderful and amazing attributes.
I can turn to God for comfort because He knows all things; He is my refuge and lifter of my head. He satisfies all my needs. He is near to me when I call or cry out to Him. He will uphold me when I fall. Therefore, I will praise the Lord forever and ever.
Grief is never easy and without God, I could not bear it. My heart is grieving over the loss but I know that God is near and will see me through this yet again. Praise His holy name.
