ciLual 1" i God's Comfort Isaiah 51 : 12, II Corinthians 1:4 Most people have, to some de- :ree, suffered pain. Many have suf- fcred heartache. Did it make you hiter or resentful? Or did you learn o endure? Hardships seem to be a part of human existence. I know I am better for having experienced some hardships. Many who read these lines will ccall having stood by tile side of one who lay on a bed suffering. Perhaps you tried to share that person's suf- fering by administering some aid. f:ew people like to suffer. Yet there was one who suffered untold agony for us, He hung upon a cross, hands and feet, and side pierced. And there he died. No one gave him any comfort except God. Many who were crucified in the manner that Jesus was would hang there for three or four days. God only allowed Jesus to hang there tbr a few hours. God gave him that much com- fort. GOd spoke to Isaiah saying, "I am he that comforts you; who are you ttat you are afraid'?" The Psalmist says, "Even though I walk through tle valley of the shadow of death, I lear no evil." O, the joys of having such comfort. The word "comfort" ,.oes back a long way. It is first mentioned of Noah in Gen. 5:29. Some t4[X) years later we hear God peaking through the mouth of Isai- ah these words, "Comfort ye my people." In writing to the Corinthians Paul says, "Blessed be God the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our afflictions." How can we fully understand this wonderful attribute of God? Because we receive such comfort from God, we in turn are able to give comfort to others. Be sure your experience iden- tifies you with another who has such an experience. It is easy to turn to one who identifies with you. God comes to us at all times. But it seems quite natural for us to seek God in times of trouble. Thrice shame on us for not seeking him at all times. We have the blessed assurance that when the road gets rough and the way seems dark that God's hand is there. Why don't you try reaching up? God waits and He wants to help? He loves you. His invitation is come. Those who seek him shall find him. Having found him, his grace becomes the driving force in our lives. We become channels of his grace. God's comfort to us allows us to comfort others. Are you in trouble spiritually? Turn to the One who suffered for you. Get in tune with him who gave his all. Listen! The Holy Spirit is speaking. Turn not away. God de- stres -- even demands  that we share what he has alrevdy shared with us. May God comfort you.
