106- Love and Comfort
I wanted to title this: Love and comfort coming from fasting, from the Word, from a friend, and from praising God.
But it would have been too long.
June 28, 1983 I’m fasting breakfast and lunch, but I will eat something after devotions-
In reading certain latter chapters in Isaiah, so much comfort comes out. I feel that God wants me to receive it. But how do I know that I can legitimately receive what is written to Israel?
Later, after reading Wycliffe commentary and talking to Dan, I found out: it’s okay to BELIEVE and RECEIVE what was written to Israel!
I had to STOP READING yesterday. So much love was pouring out I was not able to receive it.
Wycliffe says chapters 40-66 is called, The Volume of Comfort.
At Homemaking Bible Study we praised God and then prayed for Eva V. She kept looking at me saying she loved me. (Why am I always surprised when people express caring for me?) She is leaving her house—just moving away to follow what she feels is Jesus’ leading. She expects her husband to buy the house, but is not sure! We asked her about how she is always singing and praising so loudly. She said, “In Tulsa the churches praise like that and the Lord comes and people fall over as He sweeps over them. He loves it.”
When we praised the Lord with Eva’s loud singing filling the room, we were all encouraged and filled with joy. We will miss our friend!
