SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 02/07- “We Are Comforted, So That We Can Comfort Others!” (2 Corinthians 1:3-4)
Premise Question: Is it possible to comfort others, who are going through tremendous trials, troubles, torment and great suffering, with the comfort of Papa God, without having first experienced His all sufficient comfort in our own disturbingly difficult, distressing and trying times, life?
All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is our merciful Father and the source of all comfort. He 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 1:3-4 NLT)
Every expression of approval, acclaim, accolade or laudation, should all be given to Papa God, The One True Sovereign Almighty God, who is The Father of our most precious LORD and Savior, Jesus Christ. It is He, who is the fountainhead and wellspring of all reassuring, consoling comfort; sharing with us His generous grace, while showing us His magnanimous mercy. He does this, by bringing relief and solace to us, in the midst of our own troubling vexations, which then enables us to have the needed wherewithal, to help others in their difficult and trying times; for when they are overwhelmed, by the trials and vicissitudes of this life, we will have the capacity to be ready, willing and able, to administer the identical comfort and help, from Papa God, that we received and experienced in our own challenging and difficult times.
(2 Corinthians 1:3-4 PDCP)
Bottom Line: There’s a song, from a number of years ago, written by the wonderful song writer and precious minister of The LORD, Andre Crouch, entitled, “Through It All.” I believe the lyrics give us insight into the answer to the Premise Question. Here is a couple of partial examples, from that song.
#1) “But in every situation, God gave me blessed consolation, that my trials come only to make me strong.” #2) “For if I’d never had a problem, I wouldn’t know God could solve them, I’d never know what faith in God could do!”
So, perhaps Papa God permits and allows us to go through some of our own difficult trials, for a number of specific reasons. One would be that we might personally experience His all sufficient, reassuring, consoling comfort and peace. Two would be, so that we would then have the capacity to not only be absolutely certain about Papa God’s great comfort, but also have an authentic compassion for others, in what they are going through, as well as having the ability to do something about it, by bringing the same love, mercy, grace and comforting, all surpassing compassion, to bear into their lives in the exact same way. So, in answer to the Premise Question…”Nope” not possible! Why, because we are comforted so that we can comfort others, with the same comfort we were comforted with! Blessings…
