COMFORT FOR THE DOWNCAST



The thought that the Creator of all that is and ever will be, cares about those who are sad and discouraged. He perfectly plans the giving of comfort and encouragement to them. Just as amazing is the way He does it. He uses the seeds of comfort from one who has has received seeds of comfort from others. God gives the comfort. The comforted one takes seeds of that comfort and plants them in one who needs comforting, who now becomes the comforted one. It keeps going. God's love cannot be stopped.

Read 2 Corinthians 7:6,7

"But God who comforts the downcast, comforted us by the coming of Titus, and not only by his coming but also by the comfort you had given him...." (NIV)

"Nevertheless God, that comforteth those that are cast down, comforted us by the coming of Titus; And not by his coming only, but by the consolation wherewith he was comforted in you..." (KJV)

There is a lot that needs to be said about "the body of Christ" and how we work in our daily lives for the Lord's purposes, which includes care for the lost, the deprived ... and care for the Saints. It all works together for each other through the Holy Spirit by the Lord's design.

Hi Bobbi

Some people seem to be better at comforting than others. My wife Rosie is gifted in this area. When we visit people in the hospital the room lights up when she walks in. She truly is gifted with an extra dose of compassion from God. I wish some of it would rub off on me.
