God Our Comforter

By   •   February 27   •   Topics: ,


There is also comfort in mourning, because in the midst of mourning God gives a song. His presence in our lives changes our mourning into song, and that song is a song of comfort. This kind of comfort is the kind which enabled a devout Englishman to look at a deep dark hole in the ground where his home stood before the bombing and say, “I always did want a basement. Now I can jolly well build another house, like I always wanted.” This kind of comfort is the kind which enabled a young minister’s wife in a church near us to teach her Sunday school class of girls on the very day of her husband’s funeral. Her mourning was not the kind which had no hope—it was a mourning of faith in the goodness and wisdom of God; it believed that our heavenly Father makes no mistakes.

Prayer for the day

Oh heavenly Father, who knows what agony and grief are because of the sacrifice of Your beloved Son, Jesus Christ-I thank You for the comfort which embraces all those who love You.

    Your mouning shall be turned to laughter your sadness to joy. Though sorrow may last for the night the joy comes in the morning. God suffered seeing his son on the cross but his suffering turned to joy on resurrection Sunday when Jesus arose from the death giving us victory over death and sin. Now sin no longer slaves us and death does not fear us. Glory to God our gracious loving Father. Amen.

  8. Gerry says:

    It would be very difficult to describe the immense comfort and peace that God provides to those who believe. Life storms would surely overwhelm most people. Believers have a guiding light in every difficulty ….that beacon is Jesus Christ.
