What’s your favourite comfort food? Chicken soup, cookies, or hot bread? When we are stressful, comfort food would do wonder for us!
After the Second World War, numerous homeless children were placed in large camps. Although the children were well fed and taken good care of, they simply couldn’t sleep well. A psychologist came up with a brilliant idea. When the children went to bed, they all received a slice of bread. They were told not to eat it but to hold it while they were sleeping. As the children subconsciously felt that they had something to eat tomorrow, they were calmed and slept well because of this.
The psalmist is waiting for deliverance, God’s Word has become a symbol of hope and a means of comfort to him. Let’s ponder his words (Psalm 119:49-56).
50This is my comfort in my affliction, that your promise gives me life. (Psalm 119:50 ESV)
Let’s pose a question to God. “How can I be comforted by the Bible?”
Let’s practice what you learnt. Pray to God and ask Him to comfort you with the Bible.
Let’s proclaim to others about your experiential knowledge. Share your experience of being comforted with a Christian.
