2 Corinthians 1:5 (VOICE) For even as His suffering continues to flood over us, through the Anointed we experience the wealth of His comfort just the same.
Beloved, embrace the wealth of comfort I offer. Refuse to stay stuck in pain. Allow Me to guide you through to the other side. There is no shame in grief or in feeling things deeply. Nor is there shame in taking time to pause – in acknowledging your experience. But there comes a moment when it is time to step forward. And just as relearning to walk after a serious injury can be difficult, moving forward after an emotional blow can be equally trying. And yet, you must try. You must carry on.
Resist the urge to wallow when it comes time to step forward. Refuse to give the enemy a toehold. Trust that My strength will sustain you. Trust that My love will uplift you. And trust that I will use all the pain for good purpose; all that was intended to bring devastation, I will use to bring more life. Because I AM the giver of live, and I give it abundantly.
2 Corinthians 1:3-5 (VOICE) All praise goes to God, Father of our Lord Jesus, the Anointed One. He is the Father of compassion, the God of all comfort. He consoles us as we endure the pain and hardship of life so that we may draw from His comfort and share it with others in their own struggles. For even as His suffering continues to flood over us, through the Anointed we experience the wealth of His comfort just the same.
