COMFORT IN SUFFERING
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.
2 Corinthians 1:3-4
We can rejoice in our sufferings because it builds our characters, which will equip us for every trial that comes our way.
This is not a peace we muster up ourselves, but is a peace derived fro God. It transcends human logic because we will find ourselves going about our days as though our problems are already salved. In God's eyes, they are and we need to trust Him for this.
We can endure through our darkest times because we are locked into God by the love of Christ. In him we are conquerors not over our sufferings, but in our sufferings.
Many will turn to family, friends, doctors, therapists, pastors and ever self-help books. When all else fails, they turn to Christ as a last resort when indeed He needs to be our first resort.
As Christians, following Jesus Christ, we will never go to anyone but to Him in in our sufferings. When we are weak, we are strong as Jesus Christ builds us up in those times. I just remember a quote that God and I are a majority, and no enemy can come against me.
Dear Father, forgive us for when bitterness has prevail in our sufferings. Keep us aware of Your presence and grant us a spirit of gratitude and hope in You in troubling times. Thank You, God. Amen
