We perceive things to bring great comfort…always there…the familiar… what is just within our reach. It presents itself…beckons…screams…pierces us, then latches on, in our hour of great desperation, promising to resolve despair. In panic…in the state of deep loneliness, we accept the invitation. Havoc…pain…destruction…we are left again, abandoned….hurting worse. Quit believing the lies of false promise. Easier said than done? Yes, yes it is. But if you will begin to starve your hunger for that which is destructive and reach for God, He will meet you in that place. God is a God who comforts us in ALL of our afflictions (2 Corinthians 1:4) Starve that thing and replace it with your need for God.
