S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
2 Corinthians 1:4
Who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.
In the previous verse, St. Paul gave praise to the Almighty, who he said COMFORTS US so we can give that comfort to someone else who needs comforting. The reason God comforts you and me as believers is so we can give it away.
Often, like anyone else, we can fall into the trap of believing that we’re blessed just because we’re special to God. It’s true that we are special to God, but the whole truth is that everyone on the planet is special to God. We are blessed to be a blessing. We are healed to help heal others. We prosper in order to give our prosperity to others less fortunate. We are loved so we can love others. Everything God has given to us we are to give to others as well. We’re not to be a bottleneck for the blessing of God in our lives. Instead, we are to be a transporter of God’s goodness to those who need more goodness. The more you look at it that way, it’s easy to see “There Is A Reason Why God Comforts Us!”
This AM I am just so grateful for Your blessing in my life. I get it. You comfort me so I can comfort others. You bless me so I can be a blessing to others. With Your help, I won’t be the bottleneck of Your blessing. I’ll give it away. Amen
