“I am poor and needy; may the Lord think of me. You are my help and my deliverer; O my God, do not delay.”
Psalms 40:17 (NIV)

Every once in a while we need comfort don’t we? The news is worst than we thought, the pain is overwhelming, the pressure is tough, the fearful thoughts are relentless. What are we to do? The Psalmist remembers God. We should too. We should remember that God thinks of us. He is our help and deliverer and even though we are poor and needy, God’s hand can still extend to our aid. In II Corinthians 1:3-5 Paul writes, “All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is our merciful Father and the source of all comfort. He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us.” Do you know God as your merciful Father? You can today. Come to Him, let Him comfort you. He knows your need, He will be your help and deliverer. And when He does comfort you, you can go and comfort others in the same way God comforted you.

Father, I come to You, poor and needy. Help me today. Comfort me and help me comfort someone else in the same way You did me.
