Divine Comfort

Divine Comfort

2Cor. 1:3 Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort;

It is peace to our spirits to know that our Heavenly Father specializes in comforting. It seems that none of us can make it through life without needing Divine comfort.

In but a moment, your world can change, disaster hit, or calamity fall. None of us are exempt from crisis, whether physical, spiritual, emotional or even financial. When that happens all of us need someone to lean on. He’s always there!


(Red Foley made a song famous that brought comfort to many in his generation.)

“Someone To Care”

When the world seems cold and your friends seem few

There is someone who cares for you

When you’ve tears in your eyes your heart bleeds inside

There is someone who cares for you

Someone to care someone to share

All your troubles like no other can do

He’ll come down from the sky and brush the tears from your eyes

You’re his child and he cares for you

When your disappointments come and you feel so blue

There is someone who cares for you

When you need a friend a friend to the end

There is someone who cares for you


Solomon sat down one day and began to recount that in life there are times and seasons we all must face. He described that there was a time and a season for everything. Toward the last of his discourse he makes a simple statement whose truth may escape the unobservant…

Eccl. 3:7 A time to rend, and a time to sew;

Imagine if you will, a small boy playing in the yard and in a moment full of life he tears his pants.  Regardless of what they cost or who gave them to him, the damage is done. He doesn’t know how to fix the problem but he goes to bed knowing that his mother said she could mend his little trousers.

When he has gone to sleep, and all the children are in bed for the night, the mother sits in her chair and sews. What took little Johnny but a moment to tear, takes his mother much longer to mend. The mending always seems to take longer than the rending.

Don’t be impatient. Your God knows how to mend the torn areas of your heart and life. Go on to sleep. The God of all comfort is at work. Your heart is in Good hands! Trust Him!

  3. Great post Bro Ballestero. I can testify of a great rent in my life a little over nineteen years ago. My kind master has repaired that rent in this man”s life.
