2 Corinthians 1:2-3
Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the father of Mercy and God of all comfort. Who comforts us in all our tribulations, that we may be able to comfort those who are in trouble.
Moses asked God, what do I Tell Pharaoh
when he ask who sent me.
God said I Am. That means I can be what you need be to me.
I am so glad that we have something money can not buy.
In the text The Apostle Paul is reminding us who God is. The God of All Comfort.
You don’t have to turn to anything else for comfort, not drugs not alcohol not your friends. Look to Jesus.
Consider Job’s loss, the father of 10 children a wealthy and healthy man, suddenly everything is gone.
How did he make it?
What was Job’s secret? He trusted the Lord, he said the Lord gave. It was not mine anyway, and the Lord taken away.
I know that my Redeemer Liveth.
Who is This God Whom Job Trusted?
VERSE 3 says… He is the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
He sent His only Son to die for me
that alone shows how much he cares and loves me.
He is the Father of Mercy. Somethings we won’t understand until we see Him. Why did my child die? Why the divorce?
Why I lost my job? Why did I get cancer?
God understands our heartache.
He was hurting seeing His only son on the cross, so He knows how to comfort you.
the word of God says many afflictions of the righteous, but God deliver them from them all.
As God comfort me I must pay it forward.
