|The God of All Comfort
Pastor Russell C. Lambert
|Chaplain Russell C. Lambert
"Blessed be God, even the Farther 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." II Corinthians 1: 3-4 KJV
As Christians we know that it is God and Christ that gives us peace, mercies, and comforts. And that it is Jesus that comforts us in our tribulation, troubles and trials. As a Christian the fewer of these you have the more distant your relationship with God will be. In other words… You will never truly know the peace and mercy of God until you are in such a fix, that He is the only one you can go to.
Paul knew this, and so should you. That by casting your cares on Him, you will find comfort; once you learn how to do this, then you can point others to the self same comfort in Jesus. This is one of the many reasons we go through the things we do in life. It is a forgone conclusion that it is God that truly comforts us in all our troubles. We can then turnaround and share the comfort we received with others. Thus becoming an encouragement to them.
You don’t think about it very much, but because of your intimate relation with Jesus, you share in His sufferings and He shares in yours. If you truly love and care about someone you feel their sufferings as your own.
So as we go through all the difficult times that we do in this world, rejoice. For Jesus said He would “never leave us or forsake us” He is our Rock and Shelter in the time of storm, His mercies endure forever. And we receive the peace that passes all understanding
