Comforting Others

God desires to comfort us when we are going through a hard time. When that difficult season is over He wants us to turn around comfort others just like He did for us. In this video I discuss how that looks and why the Lord would ask us to do that
2 Corinthians 1

Comforting

I have been writing a devotional book and I had to share with you this particular devotion about being comforted by God and then you are able to comfort others the same way the Lord was there for you!

Day 258
Comforting Others

He (God) 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.
– 2 Corinthians 1: 4 (NLT)

I love this verse so much in that first God longs to comfort us. When we are hurt, broken hearted, down, depressed, and mourning God is there to comfort us if we allow Him to. I remember being 15 and having the first guy I ever loved break up with me. I was so angry at God that I told the Lord I didn’t want anything to do with Him anymore. Months into my broken heart I was lying in bed crying when I felt these arms wrap around me. They were strong, warm, and comforting. I didn’t realize it was God who was doing it so I freaked out and started crying harder thus rejecting what the Lord was trying to do in my life. I wish I had known then the Lord was hurting with me and wanted to bring His peace and wisdom into my situation.

Years later I surrendered my life to Jesus and I have been comforted by God many many many times. He has walked me through painful situations by bringing peace and understanding. When I have come out on the other side of my pain healed and restored the Lord brings other people in my life that are going through similar situations I have faced. God nudges me to comfort them just as He did me. There was a time I didn’t understand why the Lord wouldn’t just comfort them directly himself but I began to realize that they didn’t know how to allow God to comfort them just like I didn’t get God was trying to comfort me when I was 15. After I understood this I was able to not only comfort them but point them to the Lord who wanted to help them walk out the pain or hurt they were going through.
There are things God has walked you through that were hard, hurtful, and painful. Because you had a relationship with the Lord you were able to allow him to help you heal and be comforted. Not everyone will have that because of their lack of understanding of God. There will be people that will remain broken, hurt, and disappointed if you don’t comfort them and point then back to the Lord. God wants to use you to bring healing in people’s lives.
This may sound very intimidating but all you have to do is listen to what God is telling you and walk them through just as God did for you. You don’t have to have an education in psychology to help others. Your experience is education enough to recognize where a person is at and comfort them in their time of need.

Is there someone in your life God wants you to comfort because of what you have been through? Do you make yourself available to God to use you to comfort others just as He has comforted you in your life?

Faith For Healing 

Lindsey was having back pain to the extreme. And having a slipped disk is hard enough let along having 3 small children.  One day someone prayed over her and the pain went away.  But then it came back worse than before.  Was Lindsey going to believe God healed her and stand on that promise or was she going to give into the extreme pain and pretend it never happened?
