Who do you know that can give great hugs? Is it your mother? Your grandmom? Your aunt? There are people that having the hugging gift. Their hugs are filled with so much love and if you’re the type that love hugs, you can find yourself asking, “Will you please hug me again?” When someone gives you a hug, you feel as though everything is going to be alright. That’s how it feels when Holy Spirit comforts us. It’s a great big bear hug of the heart. The kind where you are all squished. You may be someone that is not the touchy feely type, but if you let God’s Spirit begin to comfort you and hug your heart, you will become completely defenseless. His comfort lets you know that everything is going to be alright. His comfort lets you know that He got you and that you’re not crazy! Well, maybe a little, but He loves you still. Whether He leads you to a particular Scripture, a song to rise in your heart, or touches someone’s heart to bless you in some way, God has a way of reminding you of His love for you. He is a God of comfort. He knows how to take the everyday stresses of life, and give you peace and rest in your soul. He knows how to cause everything that’s raging to be brought to peaceful waters again. He knows how to take a fearful and restless mind and cause it to rest. Hallelujah! Be refreshed today by the comfort of the Holy Ghost and the Word of God. Let Him minister to your heart and let you know everything will be alright!
“And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Comforter (Counselor, Helper, Intercessor, Advocate, Strengthener, and Standby), that He may remain with you forever—The Spirit of Truth, Whom the world cannot receive (welcome, take to its heart), because it does not see Him or know and recognize Him. But you know and recognize Him, for He lives with you [constantly] and will be in you.” (John 14:16-17 AMP)
Prayer: Father, thank You for blessing me today with a huge heart hug. Your comfort to my heart is amazing! Thank You. Help me be mindful to bless someone else with the same comfort that You have shown towards me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
