A young lady with a six- month-old child lost her husband two years after their wedding. The woman refused to be comforted. Many people visited to no avail. Instead, she said “There is no God,” “If there is a God, why should He allow this to happen to me?” For many years she mourned, but the merciful and gracious God decided to bless that child. The child became the best in his class in primary school and won a scholarship in the secondary school. At his graduation in secondary school, he won another scholarship to study in a University abroad. At graduation, he made First Class and won express appointment to work with the presidency as the best medical doctor. On his arrival from abroad, the government threw a party to receive him. His mother was decorated and was brought from the village to the Presidential Villa, in Abuja. Wow! She could not believe her eyes. With joy she shed tears and said, “There is God.” She received Comfort from Above!
The faithful remnants may have been left alone, but God, in Isaiah 51, reminded them of their ancestors, the source of their spiritual heritage. Abraham was only a person but much came from his faithfulness. If the faithful will remain faithful, even more will come from them. If we Christians remain faithful to our calling, think of what God can do through us. We will, no doubt receive the comfort from above like the young lady in our story.
Though the young lady said there was no God, she decided to remain faithful to her late husband and take care of her baby boy. Eventually, she received the comfort from above. Whatever you may be passing through, remain faithful to God just as God told the people of Judah in Isaiah 51:1-2 “Listen to Me, you who follow after righteousness, you who seek the Lord: Look to the rock from where you were hewn, And the hole of the pit from where you were dug. Look to Abraham your father and to Sarah, who bore you; for I called him alone, and blessed him and increased him.” The writer of Hebrews 12:2also made the same call and appeals to us to “Look unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him, endured the Cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” As you abide in Him, may you receive the comfort from Above in Jesus’ name. Amen.
Isaiah 57:18 “I have seen his ways, and I will heal him; I will also lead him, and restore comforts to him and to his mourners.”
Love Divine, give me the grace to faithfully follow You and richly qualify for comfort from above in Jesus’ name. Amen.
