2 Corinthians 1:3-5
“Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God. For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also aboundeth by Christ.”
Are you hurting today? We serve the God of all comfort.
Let’s see what the word comfort means:
Comfort: to give strength and hope; to ease the grief or trouble
Then if we serve the God of all comfort, and we do, this tells us that He is able to give us strength and hope when we need it the most. He is also able to ease our grief and make our troubles cease.
Have you ever wrapped a comforter around you on a dark and cold night? The warmth and relaxation provided by that quilt as it wraps around you helps us forget how cold and dark it is outside. When we allow God to comfort us, He will wrap His loving arms around us, providing strength to make it through the storms of life.
No matter what you dealing with today: confusion, sadness, persecution, oppression, trouble, etc. God is willing and able to comfort you. He allows us to suffer so that we may be partakers of Christ’s sufferings, and be able to comfort us so that we may have peace and comfort others.
“These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” John 16:33
