Blessings for the Suffering!
“Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” Romans 15:13
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also abounds through Christ.” 2 Cor. 1:3-5
If you heard the personal stories I hear on a regular basis through my ministry work, your heart may well break. People are continually pouring out their hearts and stories to me as I am blessed to point them to the Lord Jesus Christ and the Bible. It is heartbreaking indeed to hear of the indescribable suffering of people worldwide. But there is a LOVE, HOPE, PEACE, JOY, and COMFORT available to every person on this planet no matter our suffering!
His name is THE LORD JESUS CHRIST, and we can have a forever relationship with the Lord when we turn from our sins and believe He died on the cross to pay our sin penalty and was raised from the dead, truly turning our hearts and lives over to God and His ways. We can experience and enjoy fellowship with Jesus right here on this earth no matter our trials and tribulations, and we can look forward to spending forever with Him in heaven where there won’t be an ounce of suffering forevermore.
LOVE, HOPE, PEACE, JOY, and COMFORT are ours for the taking moment by moment and forever IN THE LORD JESUS CHRIST and in our relationship with Him when we give ourselves over to Him and His ways.
No matter our suffering, when we are His, His Spirit is right here in and with us to love us, to comfort us, to bless us, to speak to our hearts, to give us wisdom and direction, to protect us, to defend us, to provide for us, to teach us, to counsel us, to give us hope, to remind us of our future in heaven with Him, to reveal Himself to us, and give us endless treasures in the Bible, to lead us, to direct us, to make us more like Himself, to be our Lord, to be our God, to be our healer, to redeem us, to spend time with us and us with Him, to draw us ever closer to Himself, to fill us with more of Himself, to correct us when we need correction, to be our gracious, generous, beautiful, glorious Father, to show us more and more of Himself as we read His Word and spend time with Him, and on and on – and on. Forever!
