Why this lesson at this time?
Where does real comfort come from?
Does temporary comfort hurt us?
Please read 2 Corinthians 1:3-4
Vs. 3 “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.”
In my pain I have found the reason for the season of pain being a way to prepare me for Love needed. Gods timing is perfect as are the people in our life and the timing that they are here.
God is always preparing you for a mission of Love and Mercy! Learn the lesson and share the Love- this is the formula I have seen God use in my life.
Because He is “the God of all comfort” not of pain alleviation but of pain elimination! Pain alleviation is a temporary fix to forget the troubles for a moment but His plan, His pain elimination is about making us better Lovers!
Pain alleviation whether it’s based on shopping, sex, drugs or any one of a million other things will never make you a better Lover only a weaker being! Jesus took human form and suffered everything a man suffers because as He did He became the World’s Greatest Undisputed Champion Lover of All Times!
Wouldn’t it be great if we all had the mind of Christ in us to learn the suffering so we can share the comfort and Love?
Here is a meditation for you. In a place and at a time where you probably won’t be disturbed (but if you are take time to Love the person) take several deep breaths and each time you exhale let go of the stress you feel. Get a picture of Jesus as your teacher in front of a white board about to teach a lesson to you His student. As you get that picture do this:
Breathe in and say:
“Lord teach me”
Breathe out and say:
“To be a tool of Your Love”
Practice this several times till you see your teacher writing on the board just for you. What is he writing?
Don’t Worry- Be Grace-Full!!
