When anxiety is great within you, turn to Me for consolation. Other words for “consolation” are comfort, compassion, empathy, help, encouragement, reassurance, and relief. I gladly provide all of this—and much more—for My children. Yet your natural tendency when you’re feeling anxious is to focus on yourself or your problems. The more you do this, the more you forget about Me and all the help I can supply. This worldly focus only increases your anxiety! Let the discomfort you feel at such times alert you to your neglect of Me. Whisper My Name, and invite Me into your difficulties.
Seek My Face, finding comfort in My compassion and empathy. Look to Me for encouragement, reassurance, and help. I know all about your problems, and I also know the best way to deal with them. As you relax in My loving Presence, I strengthen you and provide relief from your anxiety. I reassure you that nothing in all creation can separate you from My Love. My consolation is full of blessings, beloved; it brings Joy to your soul.
When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought joy to my soul.
~ Psalm 94:19
When You said, “Seek My face,” my heart said to You, “Your face, Lord, I will seek.”
~ Psalm 27:8
For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
~ Romans 8:38–39
