The Word Today

Our text today is 2 Corinthians 1:3
Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort.
The God we serve is the God of all comfort, the God that takes delight in comforting His children …Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God (II Corinthians 1:4). When He sent Jesus Christ into the world, He gave Him the same mandate as His; comfort the Zion dwellers …To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn; To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified (Isaiah 61:2-3). This is why we can come out strong in the midst of trials and tribulations with excitement on our faces. Our God always turns our mourning into dancing and sorrows into celebration. When we should be wearing a heavy heart, God turns it into a garment of praise. Praise the Lord!
II Corinthians 4:8-10; We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body. Today, take out quality time to thank and praise God for not allowing you to be where the devil thought you would be. Praise the Lord!
