As a mother comforts her child, so will I comfort you

There is a special bond between a mother and a child and God wants us to know that he loves us with that same intensity, passion and devotion.

God says:

‘As a mother comforts her child, so will I comfort you’ (Isaiah 66.13)

God offers us love, comfort and care, but how will we respond?

Will we be like the stroppy toddler who throws a tantrum rather than seeking comfort?

Will we go off and cry alone feeling far from God?

Will we turn to God and allow him to give us the comfort and love that we need?

It starts with surrender.

God wants to love and to comfort us but will we open up ourselves to receive these things?

About honestaboutmyfaith

Hi, my name is Graeme and I’m married to a very patient wife. We have 4 children, a dog, 2 rabbits, a terrapin (and not a lot of peace and quiet!). I’m a Baptist Minister in Colchster in the UK who is especially interested in making Church accessible to people who have no church background and also in how we disciple people in order to equip them to live out their faith in the 21st Century. I am also a member of the Eastern Baptist Association's Council with responsibility for Mission Strategy.
