2 Corinthians 1:3 KJV Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort.
Sometimes the comforting of someone is NOT enough. HE comforts anyone who calls upon HIM in time of need. Some people blame God for what has happened to them, that they overlook Him, right there ,wanting to help them through whatever they may be going through. HE is very near when HE COMFORTS US!!
We go through times in our lives, when we don't feel the closeness of God.We are not as close to God as we need to be.He is always near. I can relate to this, personally. This also helps us to comfort others. It gives us a sense of encouragement to help others with the problems they are going through. I face this every day. If I can help someone, medically, physically, spiritually then I feel that God used me for His honor to comfort someone... EVEN when I feel like ''it's NO use!!!'' Sometimes, just lending an ear to someone who wants to share their problems, and burdens can be a great comfort to others.. YOU don't have to say a word, just BE THERE..
I like the book of Psalms. You can ALWAYS find COMFORT there.
Psalm 23:4 KJV ''Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for thou are with me, thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me.''
glad to know HE comforts me when I am weary, eases EVERY pain, feels my deepest longings, time and time again!!
The comfort of HIS love,
Helps the struggles along;
Praising the LORD above,
In words of joyful song.
