Abiding With God in the Heartache and the Joy
DAY 8 OF 14
God of all Comfort
Many of us struggle to picture, let alone internalize, the Father of compassion, the God of all comfort, yet these attributes are true.
They say that the broken make the best menders. As we learn to draw on God’s comfort in our moments of adversity, we become relevant and helpful to those around us facing the perplexities of life.
We truly learn to weep with those who weep and rejoice with those who rejoice. For example, Dr. Nick Hawkes, a regular contributor to Daily Bible, has provided tremendous comfort to others experiencing ‘stormy waters’ through his Daily Bible offerings on his cancer journey.
Nick can attest to God’s comfort overflowing into his life as he has learned to rest in him.
I pray that the Lord will strengthen, revive, heal and encourage those impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. I pray that you know the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles. Let us pray together that this healing, comfort, and encouragement will be experienced in all homes around the world, for Jesus Christ has come for all people.
Heavenly Father, I come before you now seeking your compassion and comfort. I ask that you comfort me, my loved ones, friends, and neighbors, in our troubles, troubles you know deeply. I thank you for it is because of the grace provided to me through Christ’s death and resurrection that I can pray for this comfort. Amen.
