Comfort your heart Lord


Genesis 18:3-5 lists out three requests of Abraham to the Lord when he saw the Lord with two other men standing outside his tent. Genesis 18:5 reads “And I will fetch a morsel of bread, and comfort ye your hearts; after that ye shall pass on: for therefore are ye come to your servant. And they said, So do, as thou hast said.” The third of Abraham’s request (plea) was to give him opportunity to “comfort the Lord’s heart”.

It may seem absurd that the God of all comfort (2 Corinthians 1:3) may need to be comforted. Many a times, we seek comfort for ourselves comfort – comfort from the trials of life.

Points to ponder:
Let us ask for the opportunity to serve the Lord – to serve him so that he will not only be our comfort, but be comforted by our life as well.

Genesis 18:5 (KJV)
And I will fetch a morsel of bread, and comfort ye your hearts; after that ye shall pass on: for therefore are ye come to your servant. And they said, So do, as thou hast said.

One thought on “Comfort your heart Lord

  1. Thanks Bro Mano for the daily bread. Thought of sharing on what God laid on my heart.

    Bible says Eph 4:30 it says “And grieve not the Holy Spirit …”
    So God is grieved. Jesus was grieved whenever he saw his disciples failed to depend whole-heartedly on him, did not learn from their mistakes, did not take God’s warnings seriously and the only way he is comforted is when we live a life that is honorable to His Name and that is mentioned in preceding verses 4:17-29 and also in 31-32. God is comforted when his children walk according to his word and do things that are pleasing to Him.
