Comfort others…

2 Corinthians 1.4

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. For just as we share abundantly in the sufferings of Christ, so also our comfort abounds through Christ. 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 sufferings 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.  2 Corinthians 1:3-7

The Sovereign God, who is always doing more than one thing at a time, has purpose in trouble, disappointment, and suffering. He is the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort. Comfort that He expects us to use to comfort others.

Isn’t it comforting just to know that God gives comfort/encouragement to us with the expectation that we will pass it on…that the heartache, tears, inner pain does have purpose? Paul says in verse 6, 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 sufferings we suffer.” Let’s see, I am distressed and one reason for the distress is your comfort and salvation. I then find comfort and that is for your comfort as well and will produce patient endurance when it is your season to suffer. What a great God, in it all He is training us to be instruments of comfort or comforters for others. 

It really is the grace of transformation at work here. The taking on of the character and nature of God. Remember verse 1, Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort.  The Father of our Lord Jesus who is the image of the Father, and the Holy Spirit as described in John 14:26, But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

We look at Paul’s list of troubles and know that his life experiences gave him much need of comfort.

“I have worked much harder, been in prison more frequently, been flogged more severely, and been exposed to death again and again. 24 Five times I received from the Jews the forty lashes minus one. 25 Three times I was beaten with rods, once I was pelted with stones, three times I was shipwrecked, I spent a night and a day in the open sea, 26 I have been constantly on the move. I have been in danger from rivers, in danger from bandits, in danger from my fellow Jews, in danger from Gentiles; in danger in the city, in danger in the country, in danger at sea; and in danger from false believers. 27 I have labored and toiled and have often gone without sleep; I have known hunger and thirst and have often gone without food; I have been cold and naked. 28 Besides everything else, I face daily the pressure of my concern for all the churches.” 2 Corinthians 11:23-28

Certainly, there would be need for much comfort, encouragement, and strengthening as Paul labored for the Lord. Therefore, he would have much comfort, encouragement, and strengthening to pass along.

I belief that while we could agree that none of us have experienced Paul’s exact life, we could all look back over our lives and know that there have been and perhaps even right now, seasons of receiving the comfort, encourage, and strength that only God gives. This should cause us to bow with thanks and praise for how God used His servants to help us through, to bring us a due Word in season, to pray for us, meet our needs, to just be there.

I am reminded of Hebrews 12:15a, “See to it that no one misses the grace of God.” With this in mind, may we commit to the Lord as His instruments of grace of comfort, encouragement and strength in the Name of Jesus to the glory of God and the blessing and benefit of His people!

Encouragement in the Lord

2 Corinthians 1.3and4

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. For just as we share abundantly in the sufferings of Christ, so also our comfort abounds through Christ. 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 sufferings 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.  2 Corinthians 1:3-7

The Apostle Paul founded the church at Corinth and ministered there for 1 1/2 years. The church experienced some trouble after Paul was no longer there and he sent Timothy to the church to deal with the issues. The issues persisted and Paul had to visit the church himself to deal with those involved but issue was not resolved. He later sent Titus with a stern letter and Titus was able to report that problem was resolved.

Paul then wrote a second letter – 2 Corinthians with encouragement as one of the aims. As we look at the verses above from the letter, two things are very clear:

  1. believers can expect trouble and suffering
  2. comfort (encouragement) is available in God

Life comes with the “stuff” whether it is with the church, at home, at work, within the family, outside the family, in the world and on and on. There are times that we are hurting, disappointed, troubled, anxious and even depressed. I would dare to say that we all at one point or the other in life have had our moments of being the bear in the image below.

2 Corin 1.3-4

Look at his little eyes and mouth, his hand position and we know that he is sad and despondent. There is pain, suffering, anxiety that came about due to the circumstances and situations of life. Sometimes, the press can be so bad that even getting out the bed is a little too much.

I know that I have had those days in my life and have learned that one of the best ways around discouragement and depression is to move my focus from myself and my circumstance to the God who loves me so much that He gave His Son so we could have intimate relationship. This movement always begins with praise of the One, True and Living God and thanking Him that He is indeed my Father and I am His child.

It is my way of doing as the Psalmist declared in Psalm 24, Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle (vs 7-8).” It is then that I am able to begin to defeat the enemy of soul and preach the Word over myself.

No matter what your battle may be today, please know that the King of Glory is strong and mighty in battle. This alone is worthy of our praise and should bring comfort and encouragement to our souls but look at verse 3 as well and find the listing of reasons to praise our God.

  • He is God
  • He is Father of our Lord Jesus Christ
  • He is the Father of compassion
  • He is the God of all comfort
  • He comforts us in all our troubles

He is the God who will make His presence known right in the room with us and strengthen us to respond to His command to “…Get up! Pick up your mat and walk (John 5:8).”

Yes, comfort is available in God. He will use His Word, His Spirit, and sometimes He sends someone like Paul who can encourage to walk by faith and not sight, to endure suffering to His glory and blessing of others. We will talk about that on tomorrow. In the meantime, I’m lifting up my head and letting the King of Glory come in! Who is this King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle!

Eyes lifted to the Lord…

Psalm 123

To You I lift up my eyes,
    O You who are enthroned in the heavens!
Behold, as the eyes of servants
    look to the hand of their master,
as the eyes of a maidservant
    to the hand of her mistress,
so our eyes look to the Lord our God,
    till He has mercy upon us. Psalm 123:1-2

These verses so put me in mind of John, chapter 6, when many of the people decided that Jesus’ teaching about feeding on His flesh and drinking His blood was a hard teaching and turned back (John 6). Afterward Jesus had a question for the twelve:

67 So Jesus said to the twelve, “Do you want to go away as well?” 68 Simon Peter answered him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life, 69 and we have believed, and have come to know, that you are the Holy One of God.”  John 6:67-69

Peter got it right…

For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself a ransom for all.” 1 Timothy 2:5

Wisdom Wednesday

Psalm 119.105

Blessings today! It is Wisdom Wednesday! I am excited because on today and tomorrow we will continue with a focus on the Word of God. In Matthew 4:4, Jesus said, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’” God is not a man that He should lie…so let’s read some additional words that God has spoken in regards to His Word. On today and tomorrow, I will share some short writings from a couple of my old friends, Charles Spurgeon (today) and A. W. Tozer (Thursday). May God grace us with many Selah, pause and ponder, moments. Please comment below if He gives you words to share. May your day be filled with joy as you meditate upon His Word!

“Every word of God is flawless;
H

Word 31Word 30

Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. 18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. Ephesians 6:13-18

For the word of the Lord is right and true;
He is faithful in all he does. Psalm 33:4

Singing the old hymn today, “Open my eyes that I might see.”

1.Open my eyes, that I may see
glimpses of truth thou hast for me;
place in my hands the wonderful key
that shall unclasp and set me free.
Silently now I wait for thee,
ready, my God, thy will to see.
Open my eyes, illumine me, Spirit divine!

2.Open my ears, that I may hear
voices of truth thou sendest clear;
and while the wavenotes fall on my ear,
everything false will disappear.
Silently now I wait for thee,
ready, my God, thy will to see.
Open my ears, illumine me, Spirit divine!

3.Open my mouth, and let me bear
gladly the warm truth everywhere;
open my heart and let me prepare
love with thy children thus to share.
Silently now I wait for thee,
ready, my God, thy will to see.
Open my heart, illumine me, Spirit divine!

Hope for today: a way in the wilderness

HopeThus says the Lord, who makes a way in the sea, a path in the mighty waters,
17 who brings forth chariot and horse, army and warrior; they lie down, they cannot rise, they are extinguished, quenched like a wick:
18 “Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old. 19 Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert. Isaiah 43:16-19

The fear of the Lord

Ecclesiastes 12.13

I recently hear a sermon focused around “the fear of the Lord.” The sermon abounded in Scriptures regarding what God has said about fearing Him. The aim of the sermon was to encourage us to “draw near to God and He will draw near to you [us] (James 4:8)” for it is there that we will find peace, security, and hope.

How sad it is when we choose to run from God instead of drawing near for when we truly fear Him, we find that He is our refuge, fortress, sun, shield, present help, and all that we need. In fact, as the minister stated, running from God shows that we do not fear God enough. I am sharing some of the passages from the Book of Psalms that were used in the sermon and asking the Lord to help us all draw near in reverential fear, awe, honor and respect of Himself, the Holy, Righteous, Pure, Perfect, Almighty, Sovereign God and find our delight in Him.

Psalm 25:14
The friendship of the Lord is for those who fear Him, and He makes known to them His covenant.

Psalm 31:19
Oh, how abundant is your goodness, which you have stored up for those who fear You and worked for those who take refuge in You, in the sight of the children of mankind!

 Psalm 34:7
The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear Him, and delivers them.

Psalm 34:9
Oh, fear the Lord, you His saints, for those who fear Him have no lack!

Psalm 103:11
For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is His steadfast love toward those who fear Him;

Psalm 103:13
As a father shows compassion to His children, so the Lord shows compassion to those who fear Him.

Psalm 111:10
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; all those who practice it have a good understanding. His praise endures forever!

Psalm 112:1
Praise the Lord! Blessed is the man who fears the Lord, who greatly delights in His commandments!

The Word of God is Truth and He is faithful to His Word! We have no reason to run and every reason to draw near.

Don’t be anxious, pray

Matthew 6.33But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? 31 Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. 33 But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.

34 “Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble. Matthew 6:30-34

Isn’t it amazing how many times we accept the enemy’s invitation to worry. Yes, it is true that most of things we worry about never happen but I am thinking that the per cent is even higher regarding things in which we have no control.

Now, don’t get me wrong, I understand that God is the Sovereign and in control but we don’t always know what He is doing, how He is doing it, or when He is going to do it…and we become anxious. So very often we worry about things that even if we knew every detail, we would not have the power or control to change it. Whatever the issue, situation, trial, circumstance or trouble we must surrender it to the Most High God who has ALL POWER and is attentive to the cries of His children.

“For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous
    and his ears are attentive to their prayer.” 1 Peter 3:12

Worry adds nothing…BUT the great privilege of prayer makes the difference. The Lord instructs us not to be anxious because worry interrupts faith. Worry does nothing to help us but the faithful prayers of the righteous avail much. While we have no control, our loving, compassionate Father does.

“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7

“The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much. James 5:6b

O Heavenly Father, He who is the Strong and Mighty Warrior, please help us to bring all our concerns to Your throne room of grace that we might find mercy for our anxious souls. Help us to walk by faith and not sight, knowing that nothing is impossible for You.
Give us hearts that seek first Your Kingdom and righteousness, trusting that you will meet our needs according to the riches of your glory in Christ Jesus. We give thanks for Your every good and perfect gift.
In Name of Jesus, Your Son and our Most Precious Gift, Amen

James 5.16

The Altar of Burnt Offerings

Altar of Burnt Offerings

“Build an altar of acacia wood, three cubits high; it is to be square, five cubits long and five cubits wide. Make a horn at each of the four corners, so that the horns and the altar are of one piece, and overlay the altar with bronze. Make all its utensils of bronze—its pots to remove the ashes, and its shovels, sprinkling bowls, meat forks and firepans. Make a grating for it, a bronze network, and make a bronze ring at each of the four corners of the network. Put it under the ledge of the altar so that it is halfway up the altar. Make poles of acacia wood for the altar and overlay them with bronze. The poles are to be inserted into the rings so they will be on two sides of the altar when it is carried. Make the altar hollow, out of boards. It is to be made just as you were shown on the mountain.
Exodus 27:1-8

The Lord now begins to give instructions regarding the outer court and begins with the most important object, the altar of burnt offerings. The altar was made of acacia wood and measured 7.5’x7.5″x4.5′ and was covered with bronze instead of gold as was used with the items in the Holy Place. It had horns at each of the four corners (like animal horns). These horns were covered with blood when the priests were consecrated and on the Day of Atonement. The altar was hollow and built with rings and poles so it could be carried from place to place. The utensils and accessories were made of bronze as well.

This altar was used for animal sacrifices as the offerings for sin were made. It was located immediately inside the entrance to the outer court which points to the fact that approaching God required a blood sacrifice for For the life of a creature is in the blood, and I have given it to you to make atonement for yourselves on the altar; it is the blood that makes atonement for one’s life. (Leviticus 17:11).”

“The law is only a shadow of the good things that are coming—not the realities themselves. For this reason it can never, by the same sacrifices repeated endlessly year after year, make perfect those who draw near to worship. Otherwise, would they not have stopped being offered? For the worshipers would have been cleansed once for all, and would no longer have felt guilty for their sins. But those sacrifices are an annual reminder of sins. It is impossible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins.
Therefore, when Christ came into the world, he said:
“Sacrifice and offering you did not desire,

    but a body you prepared for me;
with burnt offerings and sin offerings
    you were not pleased.
Then I said, ‘Here I am—it is written about me in the scroll—
    I have come to do your will, my God.’”
First he said, “Sacrifices and offerings, burnt offerings and sin offerings you did not desire, nor were you pleased with them”—though they were offered in accordance with the law. Then he said, “Here I am, I have come to do your will.” He sets aside the first to establish the second. 10 And by that will, we have been made holy through the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.
11 Day after day every priest stands and performs his religious duties; again and again he offers the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins. 12 But when this priest had offered for all time one sacrifice for sins, he sat down at the right hand of God, 13 and since that time he waits for his enemies to be made his footstool. 14 For by one sacrifice he has made perfect forever those who are being made holy.
15 The Holy Spirit also testifies to us about this. First he says:
16 “This is the covenant I will make with them
after that time, says the Lord.
I will put my laws in their hearts, and I will write them on their minds.”
17 Then he adds: “Their sins and lawless acts I will remember no more.”
18 And where these have been forgiven, sacrifice for sin is no longer necessary.
Hebrews 10:1-18

No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have authority to lay it down and authority to take it up again. This command I received from my Father.”
John 10:18
