I Am Consoler

Isaiah 51:12
12 “I, I am the one who consoles you. Why are you afraid of mortal men, of mere human beings who are as short-lived as grass?

God says, “I Am the One Who consoles you.” How we like to moan and complain to others. We want them to know how bad things are for us. We want their sympathy. We want them to feel sorry for us. Maybe the can give limited comfort for a limited time but it is God Who can give total consolation and turn our minds and emotions to hope and joy in Him. No amount of human reasoning can do what God will do for us if we would just look to Him. He says He hears the moaning of our hearts even before we are aware of them ourselves. When we go through hard and/or sad times, who do we seek, who do we call out to? Let it be the One Who really knows what we are facing and how we are to walk through it.
