God of all Comfort
One of the many names for the Lord is a comforter. What a perfect description! His presence can make you comfortable in the most uncomfortable situations. He can unravel the dark shroud of grief and release the beautiful heart held captive within. He can pull you out of every situation you thought you’d be stuck in forever. He has the ability to bring peace to every trauma. In fact, with you when it hurts and He will always be there for you.
You will live and love and experience loss before your life is over. Losing some things will help you appreciate what you still have. It is the bitter taste of poverty that makes prosperity so sweet. How can you celebrate victory if you have never faced defeat?
You will live each day not knowing what the next one will bring. You will not always be able to see what tomorrow holds, but it is a great comfort to know that your God holds all your tomorrows. Tomorrow is not in the hands of your boss, your children, your husband, or anyone else. It is not yours to manipulate or to dominate. Tomorrow is in the hands of the Lord. Whatever you do, take time to get to know Him, because you will need Him. Speak to the God of all comfort, for His comfort is sure for every tomorrow.
He will be there when husbands, friends, children, jobs, and money are all gone. He is there for all your dark places. Now take courage, my sister, and understand that “Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning” (Psalm 30:5). Your night may seem long, but when it is over, there will always be morning.
No matter how dark the night, you’ve always lived to see the light. Understand that it is God’s grace that has protected you and provided for you, brought you through and secured you, calmed you, and comforted you. Times change and seasons change, but not God He is always the same. He is the same God who brought you through your past and promises you, your future. The God of all comfort has come. Be comforted now, my sister. You will arise.
