When we go through difficult times we need to rely on the love of God to sustain us. Only His love could reach the deepest part of us that was hurting. We will feel His gentle arms carry us and cradle us in our difficult times. During these difficult times in our lives, we receive a deeper understanding of God as the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort who comforts us in all our troubles. When we need comfort most, God is faithful to be there. I want to encourage you that whatever you’re pain and disappointment you’re going through, He just wants to be with you and to weep with you as His heart is breaking with your heart.
“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.” ~2 Corinthians 1:3-4
There are seasons of devastation that we all go through where we are in desperate need of our Heavenly Father’s love and comfort. Let Him carry you through these seasons in your life. You were never meant to shoulder these burdens on your own. God wants to comfort you with His tender love, so that you might be able to pass on the comfort that you have received to others when they need the His love. Are you troubled today? Come next to God, let Him comfort you. Are you weary and don’t know what to do? Move toward God, lean upon Him, let Him wrap you in His arms. He will comfort you. Are you at the end of yourself, too frozen to move? Turn your head in His direction, whisper with your thoughts, He will hear you. He is the merciful Father and the source of all comfort. Today, come next to Him and be comforted.
