Kids4Truth Clubs Daily Devotional – God Is My Comforter

“In the multitude of my thoughts within me thy comforts delight my soul” (Psalm 94:19).

How many thoughts go through your mind in a single day? Would you like to take a guess? Hundreds? Thousands? It is estimated that the average person has around fifty thousand thoughts in one single day! That means you think about thirty-five thoughts per minute. Wow! That’s a lot of brain power. What kind of things do you think about during the day? You likely have thoughts about school, family, friends, chores, entertainment, what’s for dinner; the list goes on and on.

Out of all of the things that you think about in a day’s time, how often do thoughts of God cross your mind? If you could somehow track how often you think about God or His Word, you would find that the number of thoughts you have about God are not very many compared to fifty thousand thoughts per day!

The writer of Psalm 94 realized that out of all of the thoughts that went through his mind in a single day, his thoughts of God were of greatest comfort to him. We all go through times when we need comforting. Maybe you are facing sickness or are nervous about the big math test next week; or maybe you have experienced the death of someone close to you. No matter what the reason, God is always there to comfort you, but you have to practice thinking about Him and what you know to be true about God from His Word, the Bible! The more you practice this type of thinking, and the more you read Gods’ Word, the more often you will find that God helps to comfort you in your time of need.

Thinking about God and His Word can comfort us.

My response:

» Am I turning to God for comfort by thinking about Him?

» Am I spending more time in God’s Word so I know Him better?
