THE GOD OF ALL COMFORT
God is our Great Comforter. He comforts us in times of trouble, in times of sickness, and in times of bereavement. No matter the situation, God is there to give us His comforting arms. Make no mistake about it, God is our Great Comforter. We can turn to Him and find the comfort we need, just when we need it. We all need His comforting arms at times because life can be draining. That is when we need God to wrap His loving, comforting arms around us. There have been times in my life when I needed His comforting arms. Praise God! I am a witness today that God is truly the God of all comfort! In Psalm 119:50, we find these words:
“Your promise revives me; it comforts me in all my troubles.”
The psalmist acknowledges that God has comforted him in the time of trouble. Throughout this chapter, he speaks of God’s comforting arms. The psalmist says, “You have done many good things for me, Lord, just as you promised. You made me; you created me. I have put my hope in your word. Now your unfailing love comforts me, just as you promised me, your servant. Surround me with your tender mercies so I may live, for your instructions are my delight.” What a wonderful testimony the psalmist shares! Let someone know that we serve a God who is truly the God of all comfort!
