“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all of our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.” (2 Cor. 1.3-4)
God comforts us as we read His word. Do you need comfort and encouragement? Read through the Psalms. Find the Psalm that speaks to your needs. Pray about it. It will console you. Let others know of your problem. Maybe they have “been there, done that”. If they have, then, they can give you comfort from sharing their previous grief.
Then pass it on. We are comforted to comfort others. God doesn’t bless us because we are better than someone else, but to give us the opportunity to pass it on to others. God has human hands only when we use our hands to His glory and for His purpose.
“We are ambassadors for Christ, God making His appeal through us.” (2 Cor. 5.20)
“For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.” (Eph. 2.10)
Are we good “ambassadors”? Have we done a “good work”, today? Maybe there is no one nearby that we know whom we can comfort. Here’s an idea:
Let us all pray for Lou Rodenberger. She is still having lots of back pain from her last back surgery. I betcha God will send our prayers on down to Cross Plains, Texas; up the road from the mailbox and right into Lou’s presence.
Did you do it? Then stop and do it, now.
See there? You just sent some comfort to someone. Way to go, Lobos!
“As we have opportunity, let us do good to all men (mankind), especially those of the household of faith.” (Gal. 6.10)
Y’all read ‘em, now, ye hear?!
Love you all!
