The God of All Comfort

IMG_1303I woke this morning with a sore muscle in my leg and can barely walk. The reason eludes me. Maybe I over exercised or maybe I’m getting older and my body is simply feeling its age. Whatever the reason, I am reminded life is neither fair nor easy. We live in a fallen world under the domain of the Prince of This World – Satan. The reasons for cares and troubles cannot always be determined or explained. Some trials are so great they leave enduring scars that cannot be erased. The burdens seem more than some can bear. News headlines reflect the darkness and despair rampant in the world today. It seems there is no hope. The world needs a savior!

The good news is, the world has a savior. God loved you and came to earth two thousand years ago in the form of a human baby, lived, and died a sacrificial death on a cruel cross in order to save the world. He gave you a way back to Him. He gave you a way to overcome the world, to ride through the storms of life, and emerge as a champion.

IMG_0322Jesus said, “These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33 NKJV).

The God of the universe, who created all things and without Him nothing exists said He has overcome the world. That means He has overcome Satan. He is your hope and salvation. Through Jesus you will find peace and rest. You may not find answers to all life’s problems, but He did not promise to give answers; He promised to give peace and strength to fight the battles. Jesus did not promise a life without tribulation; He promised an overcoming life. The overcoming life Jesus promised was bought for you with His own precious blood.

God’s ways are not your ways. He allows suffering in the lives of His children to test them and refine them into the likeness of His Son. Suffering is the refining fire separating the dross from the gold. The Lord uses suffering and pain to mold and shape the character of your eternal soul. Suffering then, is an eternal exercise readying you to meet God face to face.

The Father promised in His word you will experience pain, but it is only for a season. His word says, “Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning.” (Psalm 30:5 NKJV)

In the midst of your pain, look to the Father, for He will send joy in the morning. You are more than conquerors in Him.
