Comfort: 2CO 1:3-4

2 Corinthians 1:3‑4  •  1 min. read  •  grade level: 6
God  .  .  .  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.
The Lord never says that we won’t have hard times; in fact some of the difficulties are allowed for our betterment - so that we might be more useful to Him. Often the hard times are the times when He draws us closest to Him. That makes the hard times the best times. The comfort that we have gotten during those hard times is like the cruise of oil that does not fail -we keep pouring it out to help someone else, but there is always enough left for the next needy one.
