Hello everyone, welcome to a new month MARCH which happens to be my birth month. This is a season of “NEW BEGINNINGS” dead things which needn’t lay lifeless will be revived, it could be your visions, goals, plans, relationship etc. So today, let us look into 2Corinthians 1 vs 3-5 All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is our merciful Father and the source of all comfort. 4 He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us. 5 For the more we suffer for Christ, the more God will shower us with his comfort through Christ.
First of all, for those who have a broken spirit and a contrite heart: God is the father of mercies, He is also the God of all comfort, let your mind be at rest. He will show you mercy and show you His comfort. He will comfort you in His love, He says in His word The Lord your God is in your midst, He will rejoice over you with gladness, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing. Zephaniah3:17
This is great news to know that you have a Father who told you How He feels about you and what He will do exactly for you. So do not be downcast or dismayed for what you are going through is meant to be so that God will show you what only Him can do and no one else can, be thankful during the challenges you encounter because your brothers and sisters all over the world are also going through the same kind of sufferings that you are experiencing, you are not alone my dear and if you wait on Him you will come out better, strong, changed with a renewed outlook on how you see life.
Furthermore, you will be able to comfort others who are in the same state you once were, God has given you the go-ahead to also comfort those who are in trouble just as you were, you might still be going through one or two things but there were some instances you saw how the Lord pulled through for you, probably you are thinking to yourself, how do i comfort others when I am still hurt, broken, my testimony isn’t complete yet, there is no perfect time to help other believers. God knows what HE is doing in and through you. Do not be ashamed of your story, you do not need a platform before the world hears your story, look around you….. there might have been times the Lord sent your neighbors, friends, co-workers, believers, unbelievers to confide in you, request for help but you might have pushed them away because you are still waiting for God to perfect everything about you before you can help or comfort them.
I want you to know that we are all vessels to be used either by God or the enemy and it is dependent on who you tune yourself to, through us Christ diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place. Do not be pressured, God knows you more than you know yourself trust in Him 2 corinthians2:14
This is just a reminder to you that your trials, pain, suffering is not a waste, it is for either a believer or an unbeliever out there whose life depends on what you have been through and how God brought you out, so my dear you cannot give up. Look to God, the author and finisher of your faith, the one who knows the beginning of your life to the end, He is aware of what you are going through, go to HIm in prayer, tell Him how you feel, He is listening.
I love you all with the love of God and I pray that the grace and peace of God will continually be multiplied to you and yours.
