2 Corinthians 1:3-5 (New International Version)

The God of All Comfort

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 have received from God. For just as the sufferings of Christ flow over into our lives, so also through Christ our comfort overflows.

When I read this verse, I am reminded that God says that He comforts us in “all” our trouble so that we can comfort those in “any” trouble.

To me that means that if you have ever needed the comfort of God for any reason in your life then you are qualified to be a comforter to someone else.

And if you are in a time of needing comfort right now, this verse promises that there is a God who longs to be just that for you…a Comforter.

To be honest, I think we all need a Comforter every day, don’t you?  I know I do.

Praying that today you will allow God to be your best friend and Comforter.  And if you see a friend in need, help them find this same best friend and Comforter in their life,
