God desires to answer our prayers. He is our Father in Heaven, and we are His beloved children. He loves us unconditionally.
In our family, when we lost our first child, many wondered about us saying, “They have lost the child and how are they going to continue their God’s Ministry?” Even when my beloved daughter Angel died in a car accident, as a family we were greatly troubled. Many asked, “How are they going to do the ministry cheerfully, in the midst of this sorrow?” Years back, after my husband’s demise, people watched me, wondering “How is she going to do the ministry in this state of loneliness?” But the Almighty Lord comforted and consoled us, filled us with the power of His Holy Spirit and strengthened us in those trials. He gave us the divine hope, made us to rise up and do His ministry as a family in a mighty way shining for His divine glory.
Dear beloved, as long as we are in this world, sufferings and tribulations will come to us. But as children of God, we should place our complete trust and faith on the Lord saying, ‘Whatever comes, I will trust only God, then our hope will not be cut off' (Proverbs 23:18).
We should also cling on to God’s feet every day. Then the Lord will fill us with His divine peace according to the promise mentioned in Isaiah 26:3, “You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.”
Yes, my beloved, our God is the God of all comfort. His comfort is everlasting (2 Thessalonians 2:16). His comfort sustains and strengthens us in our daily life.
In Psalm 94:19, David says, “In the multitude of my anxieties within me, Your comforts delight my soul.” When you suffer, God surely understands. Trials are temporary but our God is eternal. So never lose your heart when you face trials and tribulations in life. Be assured that you have the blessed Comforter who comforts you at all times. He is always with you and He shall never leave you nor forsake you.
Loving Heavenly Father,
I praise You for You are the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort. God, you know all my pains and sorrows. Your Word says “as a mother comforts her child, You comfort us.” This day, I plead You to be my comfort. Remind me of Your great love and comfort me in my difficult times. Let me feel Your divine presence and peace in my life and help me to comfort others as You have comforted me. I give You all glory and honor.
In Your matchless name I pray,
