[God] comforts us every time we have trouble, so when others have trouble, we can comfort them with the same comfort God gives us. 2 Corinthians 1:4 (NCV)
We are not alone in the trouble we face. God is there to comfort us. He can comfort us through His Word or use people in our lives. He helps us heal from the pain we felt so we can move forward in life. He shows us how to process the hurt so we can overcome it. He teaches us how to heal so it no longer has a hold on our lives.
God’s healing of our hurts is not just for us. He comforts us so we can comfort others going through the same thing. We can use what God taught us about overcoming our pains to help others as they experience similar situations. We can use our story to be a comfort to others. We can help them move forward in their lives by being an example for them.
The Bible reminds us that we overcome by the blood of the lamb and the word of our testimony (Revelation 12:11). Your story is something that others cannot disagree with. Your story can be used by God to change the world of others around you. Your story can be the comfort that someone needs to make it through whatever trouble they are facing. Ask God who you can comfort today.
