Comfort for the Downcast



2 Corinthians 7:6 “But God, who comforts the downcast, comforted us…”

Only the Lord Jesus Christ can comfort us with a perfect comfort. His consolation is the only lasting consolation. A husband, a wife, a child, a parent, a dearest friend can not even compare to Spirit of Christ within the believer comforting the believer in his downcast state. You and I are prone to look horizontally for comfort. We look to visible sources for temporal help. How quickly we settle for lesser helps. Why not run to the Fountain of all Comfort, Jesus Christ? Why not call upon our Invisible Aid who provides everlasting help? In His earthly pilgrimage, Jesus Christ wept bitter tears. Because of this he is best able to wipe away your tears. This Lord’s Day, seek the Lord of the day who pities us in our weakness and lifts the drooping chin.

Psalm 121:1-2 “From where does my help come? My help comes from the LORD, who made heaven and earth.”
