Spiritual Warfare: 'Shared Suffering Leads to Shared Comfort'
God's Power for Our Battles — Friday, July 15, 2022
Even when we are weighed down with troubles, it is for your comfort and salvation! For when we ourselves are comforted, we will certainly comfort you. Then you can patiently endure the same things we suffer. We are confident that as you share in our sufferings, you will also share in the comfort God gives us.
— 2 Corinthians 1:6-7 NLT
Lord, when suffering comes bringing pain and sorrow, remind me that Your comfort will always follow. As I feel the pain, Lord, help me to begin to feel the weight lift up and see the future begin to brighten. Help me to remember that You won’t leave me like this, Lord, and that there is often even a purpose to the current suffering—even if I can’t see that yet. Grant me endurance and patience as I pass through difficulty. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
