There are difficult moments in our lives that come and make us think that God is not with us. But it is not so because Jesus left us to the comforter to restore our lives.
God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.
The author of this Psalm gives us to understand that God is with us, in the midst of despair, in the midst of anguish, of difficulty, of weakness and that He does not leave us alone, He is always there to comfort us.
The meaning of consoling is to alleviate the pain or anguish of a person. I had to console a friend for the death of his father. To help someone through good words or caresses to endure his anguish. I consoled him by telling him how much he is worth as a person.
Jesus left the Holy Spirit to be with us in the midst of our anguish, as His word says in the book of John 14: 16,17
16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever—
17 the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you.
It must be said that in this book, Jesus is reminding us that we must wait for His promises, keeping His Word in each one of our hearts, and that because of that He would not leave us alone, but leaved the comforter to be with us all the time.
We must believe that the Holy Spirit is with us, all the time, and wherever we are. And it is good that we do not forget this promise that is what can keep us on our feet, this is what helps us in all these moments that come to us.
The daily life brings us various surprises which are accompanied by good and bad things. But it is good to be clear that the words of the Lord, are those that restore us, free us from all the disturbances that come to our lives.
2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
3 though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging.
The author of this Psalm says that we should not fear anything, because God is there to help us. Although the waters are wild and the mountains tremble, because He who created all things can control these problems in our favor.
Why should we be afraid? God is strong and courageous and for Him nothing is impossible.
