The God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles.

2 Corinthians 1:3-4

It’s wonderful to realise what a comforting God we have! Sad and sorrowing? Worried and perplexed? Downhearted and despairing? In all these circumstances the God of ALL comfort is there for us. But it’s not all about us and our need for comfort. There’s a wider purpose. Paul continues, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. Do you know anyone right now who needs comforting? A word of cheer perhaps or a shoulder to cry on? Pray that the Lord will lead you to be a true comforter today.
