Psalm 119:50

Comfort In God's Word
Ronnie W. Wolfe

There is no comfort like that which comes from a daily refreshing of the word of God. We look into his word through our eyes and through our faith, and we believe that it is true, that it is powerful, and that it will have an effect upon us when we accept it as his word as it is written to us as we are.

God is great; man is vain. When we see how great God is and how vain man is, then we will reach a climbing plateau that will comfort us in knowing that we have drunk from the living water of God's word.

This pure water is a cleansing stream that brings comfort, confidence, and assurance. The pureness of the content and power of the Holy Scriptures through the work of the Holy Spirit has quickened us (made us alive).  We have come, then, from death to life, from darkness to light, from chaos to order, from confusion of mind to true reason.

If you read the word of God without its giving you new life, then it is a burden to you, a dread and drudgery. It escapes your mind and holds no fancy to your inner being; but, if you read it and the Holy Spirit makes it real in your mind and heart, then you will receive true refreshing as the blessed waters from the well that springs forth unto eternal life, and comfort will come quickly.
