The God of All Comfort

Psalm 28:7
‘The LORD is my Strength and my Shield; my heart trusts in Him, and He helps me.’

Perhaps you feel like no one knows what you are going through and no one knows what you need. When we face challenge and difficulty it is easy to feel that no one can identify with what you are facing. It is for this reason that it is so wonderful to know God. The Bible tells us that He is the God of ALL comfort.

 2 Corinthians 1:3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort. (NIV)

No matter what you are facing, God knows and understands and He wants to comfort and greatly strengthen you! Nothing you are facing is beyond His ability to comfort you.
This is exactly what God wants to do for each one of us.

2 Corinthians 1:3 What a wonderful God we have—He is the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the source of every mercy, and the one who so wonderfully comforts and strengthens us in our hardships and trials.
2 Corinthians 1:7 God will tenderly comfort you when you undergo these same sufferings. He will give you the strength to endure.

This verse tells us that God WILL comfort you! It is part of God’s very nature and character to reach out and to comfort us as we pass through any form of difficulty. We must take advantage of the comfort that God is offering us.
