“In the multitude of my thoughts within me thy comforts delight my soul.” (Psalms 94: 19)
No matter how frenzied and out of control our thoughts seem to be, we have a place to rest. Even when it seems we can’t shut off the ruminating, the analyzing, the predictions and the conversations, we are ready to be comforted. God’s voice of Truth is at hand and powerful to silence all the noise.
His Words are simple and sweet. They are the uncomplicated sounds of reason, of harmony, and of love. His comforts are the language of true Love, the assurance of a Father-Mother even while we are in the throes of our childish fits of complaint and self-centeredness. We will not find those comforts by playing out a human scenario in our heads. We will find those comforts by listening to that resonant reasonableness written in our hearts, to that clear truth that God put there.
The confusion and uncertainty, even the sense of being overwhelmed by good things, can settle into the comforting realization that all things belong to God. He has every detail in His care. He unfolds according to wisdom and kindness. We can await each moment’s revelation without the need to think it into life. God’s comforts are with us because they are Truth, and the Truth is true everywhere–indisputable and solid and easy and peaceful and right.
