When God does anything for us, He does it all and He gives us His all. Therefore, we should give Him our all in everything we do, so that He can be glorified, praised and thanked. In 2 Corinthians 1:3 we see that He is the God and Father of Jesus Christ and also the God of mercies and all comfort. Therefore, it does not matter what kind of aches and pains we have, He has the right amount of comfort we need. Even if you are heartbroken, sick, sad, troubled, or fed up, He is the God of all comfort and Jesus asked Him to give us the Holy Spirit to comfort us, lead us and teach us all things (John 14:16-26).
God knows that, with the trials and tribulations in our daily life, we would need all kinds of comfort; plus while Jesus was on earth He realized that we would need comfort. In John 14:26, He informs us that the Holy Spirit who dwells with us and in us (verse 17) will not only comfort us, but teach us all things and bring all the things that the Bible and Jesus said in His word back to our remembrance. That’s why He said in John 14:27 that He will leave His kind of peace with us and give us His peace, therefore, we should not allow our hearts to be troubled of afraid.
The beauty about life as a Christian is that when we are troubled, distressed, afflicted or suffering it is for our benefit; because Christ suffered we will also suffer. Those who suffer with Christ will also reign with Him. God promises to comfort us.
The Holy Spirit, as we see in Romans 8:26-27, not only comforts us, but intercedes for us as well. By reading Romans 8:34 and Hebrews 7:25 we learn that Jesus intercedes for us; He is also our advocate, defender and lawyer.
The main point to all this is that no matter what, God will comfort us in our moments of disappointment, sadness, tears and troubles. What is important on our part is that as we receive comfort from God we should in turn comfort others with the same comfort we’ve received (2 Corinthians chapter 1 verse 4). This is why Paul praises God in his second letter to the Corinthians (2 Corinthians 1:3), he did not praise God only because He is Jesus’ Father, who is our redeemer, but Paul praised God because with the comfort God gives us we are able to comfort others. 1 John 2:1-2 tells us that Jesus is our advocate; He is the payment for our sins and the sins of the world. When Jesus left, God sent the Holy Spirit to dwell in and around us to be closer to us.
