A Weekend Of Comforted Hearts
Whether it's anxiety, surprise, fear, over-exertion, worry or just plain old uneasiness, our heart gets put through its paces every day. We don't treat them very kindly as we hurry and worry and fill our thoughts and days with more.
Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace, comfort your hearts, and establish you in every good word and work. 2 Thessalonians 2:16-17
Paul is praying here that as God has promised them eternal consolation, He will now give them comfort and comfort abundantly. He prayed that they would find themselves grounded and established in their current situation and all that was to come. They had been promised comforted hearts, and now Paul was reminding them to find the pleasures and joys that God was showering on them.
Make this a weekend of allowing God to comfort your heart. Whatever has your pulse racing, lay it at His feet. Trade your pounding heart for a heart full of peace and comfort - two blessings that can only come from God Himself. This is where His perfect peace comes from, and a comforted heart is a joyful heart.
