It’s finally Saturday! It has been a long and crazy week here at the Taylor’s. But I am encouraged through the Word of God daily. It is my heart and my passion to share with you the encouragement that He gives me every day. Durning these times of uncertainties, I want to encourage you to dive deep with the Lord! Don’t sit in fear and worry, but open up the Word and worship! Put your hope and trust in the One that is in control. His name is Jesus.
Let’s look at the nugget of truth that God gives us in 2 Corinthians 1:3-6. Paul writes and says, “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God. For just as the sufferings of Christ flows over into our lives, so also through Christ our comfort overflows. If we are distressed, it is for your comfort and salvation; if we are comforted, it is for your comfort, which produces in you patient endurance of the same suffering we suffer. And our hope for you is firm, because we know that just as you share in our sufferings; so also you share in our comfort.”
All praise to the God of heaven and earth! He is the Father of all mercy. He comes alongside of us when we go through hard times, and before you know it, he brings us alongside someone else who needs that same encouragement that we just received from the Father! We are all out of our comfort zone and our world is in a frenzy, but God is opening the doors of ministry all over the world. Let the world see the overflow of our hearts of comfort, peace, and love. Just as Christ has come along side of you, pull up beside someone who needs comforting or encouraging. It’s time for the Church to be what God designed us to be! God is calling us to be Hope Dealers and to share His message of Jesus Christ with those around us. Lord, open our eyes to see what you see and let us to be willing to do something about it. God bless you and your family.
