Comfort and mercy – 2015.01.24
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction…
2 Corinthians 1, 3
God is God of mercies and all comfort! HE sees our failure and our intractability but HE is full of patience, mercy and forgiveness. HE looks at us not as at damned but as at full of hope. „It will be better with him“, – it is His hope. And HE waits patiently when we will understand and open Him our hearts.
HE is the Father of all comfort. HE really can comfort better than all the people. When we tell Him our problem HE comes and gives us a new hope. We don‘t need to complain and to whimper everywhere but we turn to Him, the Father of all comfort. Paul had many problems and searched for comfort in prayer. He can witness: God is the Comforter! And even Jesus Himself searched in His trouble for the Father. HE strengthened Him and gave Him all comfort.
We want Him to be merciful with us. We want to believe that HE really does not condemn us but is merciful. We don’t want to handle His mercy thoughtlessly but we want to rejoice with all our heart about His mercy and patience with us. It doesn’t matter which problems and guilt there is: HE is the Father of mercies and God of all comfort!
Thank you, Father, You are merciful with me! You look at me full of mercy. There is no condemnation but patience, strength, mercy and hope for me. Thank you, You comfort me in all troubles and You help me to go through. You really are God who has mercy with me!
