Share His Power

Devotion Text

2 Corinthians 1:3-4

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.

Our God is the “Father of mercies.” He knows who you are and where you are. He understands what you are going through. He sympathizes with you. He loves you deeply. And he is the “God of all comfort.” He comes to us with strength. He brings peace to our pain and calm to our chaos. As the psalmist said, “When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought me joy” (Psalm 94:19 NIV).

Now check this out. He comforts us so that we can comfort others. Having experienced God’s work in our lives, we have the privilege and responsibility to share that needed help with others.

So…have you ever lost a job? Find a person going through that experience now. Have you survived divorce? Who is more equipped than you to minister to a person going through divorce today? Have you lost a loved one? There is no shortage of grieving people. Did God deliver you from an addiction? All around you are people stumbling and struggling. God’s work in your life serves a twofold purpose. God powerfully worked in your life; now, it’s time to share his power with someone else.

Talking Point

  • Ask God to lead you to a person who needs to be reminded of his love and comfort.

Talking to God

Father, today, lead us to someone who is going through what we have gone through. Just as you comforted us, help us minister that same comfort to them. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
