Finding Comfort In God

2 Corinthians 1:3-4 (New Living Translation)

Share Audio

All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is our merciful Father and the source of all comfort. He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us.

2 Corinthians 1:3-4

New International Version

Praise to the God of All Comfort

3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,(A) the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, 4 who comforts us(B) in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.

About This Verse

Following his introductory greeting to the saints at Corinth, where the amazing grace and abundant peace of almighty God is the heavenly blessing that Paul bestows in great measure on all the congregation there. He turns his wrapped attention and deep affection upon our great God and Father in heaven: – Blessed be GOD the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ; Blessed be the GOD and Father of all mercies and Blessed be our Father in heaven.. Who is the God of all comforts.

When God is ‘blessed’ by psalmist or apostle, by prophet, priest or king, it is a call for His creation to bow low before Him in adoration and worship. When His children are called to ‘Bless the Lord’, we should kneel in humble reverence before His glorious majesty, and worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness. When the call to “bless the Lord” comes, we should bow down before Him – the Lord is His name.

As the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ we worship our great Creator. He loved the world so much that He gave His only begotten Son as the sacrifice for sin, so that whosoever believes on Him would not perish, but have everlasting life. Those who believe become children of God and are made a new creation in Him.

As the God and Father of mercies we worship before His throne of grace, acknowledging that without the spilt blood of Christ alone we would be eternally separated from our God and Saviour. But God in His mercy and love looked down in pity on a rebellious race of prideful men, and purposed in His heart that by His grace and mercy, through faith in Christ, He would redeem this lost and dying race.

He is the God of all comforts, Who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort others that are in trouble.. with the same comfort we ourselves receive from God: the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ- the Father of all mercies and God of all comforts.

Let us bow down before HIM – the Lord is His name.

Southpaw: Reloaded

Hidden within the shadows of night, Poets by the dozens begin to write. Pens, the paintbrush of imagination; Blank paper, a canvas of creation. Verses in rhythm, a rhyming scheme– A poet's life, a written dream. Seeking the light, souls revealed, Sharing of poetry, once concealed.

“He that takes truth for his guide, and duty for his end, may safely trust to God’s providence to lead him aright.” - Blaise Pascal. "There is but one straight course, and that is to seek truth and pursue it steadily" – George Washington letter to Edmund Randolph — 1795. We live in a “post-truth” world. According to the dictionary, “post-truth” means, “relating to or denoting circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief.” Simply put, we now live in a culture that seems to value experience and emotion more than truth. Truth will never go away no matter how hard one might wish. Going beyond the MSM idealogical opinion/bias and their low information tabloid reality show news with a distractional superficial focus on entertainment, sensationalism, emotionalism and activist reporting – this blogs goal is to, in some small way, put a plug in the broken dam of truth and save as many as possible from the consequences—temporal and eternal. "The further a society drifts from truth, the more it will hate those who speak it." – George Orwell “There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn’t true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.” ― Soren Kierkegaard
