2 Corinthians 1:4
4: The God of all comfort, who comforts us in all of our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort that we ourselves receive from God
Paul is writing to comfort the Corinthians after severely correcting them. Paul had just faced trouble in Ephesus.
He talks about thanksgiving for divine comfort in afflictions. “The God of all comfort, who comforts us in all of our afflictions.”
What a wonderful soothing assurance to know that the God of ALL comfort has comfort for me. God loves me so much that when I need help most, He is there for me. Paul suffers persecution greater than I can imagine, yet God comforts him in his sufferings. I must always remember that God is there. He has his arms open wide for me, ready for a huge embrace. What a wonderful place to be, in His arms. I just have to lean in and accept it. He is the God of ALL comfort. This world makes it easy to get down. Sometimes, I may even blame God for my troubles. I must remember to lean in, into the embrace of the God of ALL comfort.
Holy Father, my troubles seem so large without you holding me up. When I need it most, I survive only because you are there with me. I must remember that you are always right there. I just have to lean in and let you comfort me. I open my arms wide to receive and enjoy your embrace. You are the God of all comfort, who comforts me in all of my afflictions.
