Behold, something wonderful is happening. Look carefully as I bring my comfort to your life. Perceive me working as I rebuild you with beautiful precious stones. I am working in each and every situation, I am the master-builder, I am the God of all comfort. I am your hiding place. I am the restorer and I will restore you to health and heal your wounds. I am longing to rebuild you with precious stones. Ask me to be your hiding place, ask me to restore you, let’s work together on your restoration.
O, you afflicted city, Lashed by storms and not comforted, I will rebuild you with stones of turquoise, your foundations with sapphires. I will make your battlements of rubies, your gates of sparkling jewels, and all your walls of precious stones.Isaiah 54:11-12 (NIV)
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. For just as we share abundantly in the sufferings of Christ, so also our comfort abounds through Christ.2 Corinthians 1:3-5 (NIV)
