In Ecclesiastes 4:1, King Solomon said he saw all the oppression that was taking place under the sun: He saw the tears of the oppressed and that they had no comforter. He said power was on the side of their oppressors and that the oppressed had no comforter. Oppression remains whether it be from those who rule over people, anxiety, fear, broken hearts or people feel their lives are meaningless.
Jesus told His disciples that they were not to rule (lord) over people like those in high positions (Matthew 20:25). Jesus said “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light, and He cares for you (Matthew 11:28-30; 1 Peter 5:7). Moreover, Apostle Paul further encourages believers not to be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present one’s requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard their hearts and their minds in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:6-7). And God says “do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand” (Isaiah 41:10).
What an assurance and comfort in knowing that Jesus cares for us and had the Father send us the Comforter (John 14:26). Our Father will forever be our Sustainer and Comforter, this is a comforting thought.
