Bedevilment, tragedy, shooting, bedlam, turmoil, and death have happened in Las Vegas.   LORD said, “There is no peace unto the wicked” Is.48:22  That was played out before our view live on TV.  Immediate crisis!  Too many lives lost, injured, scarred by pure evil while  good people were helping others survive the barrage of bullets.  We saw goodness in the midst of evil, but where is abiding comfort?  I find the EVERLASTING COMFORTER is in the LIVING GOD.  I don’t know about you, but I need God’s loving comfort during these violent times.  “For the Lord God will help me; I shall not be confounded:…He is near that justifies me…let us  stand together..Who among you fears the LORD, obeys the voice of his servant, has no light:  Let him trust in the name of the LORD” Is.50:7-10I even I, am the LORD THAT COMFORTS YOU” Is.51:12  In times like these we need the LORD>  “Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, who has loved us and has given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace, COMFORT YOUR HEARTS and establish you in every good word and work – – pray for us that the WORD OF THE LORD may have free course and be glorified…and keep you from evil” 11Thes.2:16-3:3  Jesus said in John 15:25,26 “They hated me without a cause, but when the COMFORTER IS COME, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceeds from the Father, He shall testify of me.”  In the midst of the storms, we need to look up ..”Sing, O heavens; and be joyful, O earth; break forth into singing, O mountains: for the LORD HAS COMFORTED HIS PEOPLE AND WILL HAVE MERCY UPON HIS AFFLICTED.”  Isaiah 49:13
