Comfort In All Our Troubles.
“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.” (2 Corinthians 1:3-4)
Here’s a verse to comfort you today: God will comfort you in all your troubles. God is the Father of compassion, and the God of all comfort. All the compassion we need flows from Him and He is able to comfort us in every way imaginable. Take comfort today in knowing that He’s there for you.
These words were originally written to reassure early Christians who were suffering for their new faith. Today, they can comfort us in a different kind of trouble. Whether persecution, war, famine, recession, pandemic or lockdown, there’s no trouble outside of God’s control and no situation in which He can’t comfort you. All you have to do is let Him.
He comforts us in all our troubles – not just some, not just the big or little things, but all our troubles. So, take all your troubles to God and receive His comfort.
But it doesn’t stop with us. This comfort isn’t a limited thing that dead-ends with one person. No, it’s meant to be passed on to others, multiplying even more exponentially than the most virulent disease. God comforts you so you can comfort others. God will use others to comfort you, and He will work through you to comfort others. If you’ve been comforted, pass it on. Let’s all help each other through this troubled time.
