God’s Comfort: “For My yoke is easy…”

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 tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.”

Heavenly Father, I want to thank You for being the God of all comfort who gives us reassurance in our difficult situations. I am thankful for the privilege of being able to come to You to receive mercy, grace and help in my times of need (Hebrews 4:16).

Lord, encourage me to experience what You have told me in Matthew 11:28-30 “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”

I ask that You would lead me to:

  • Scriptures in Your Word that speak of Your comfort in times of trouble
  • Christian music that exalts Your Name
  • Fellowship with other believers that will encourage me to live for You

Finally Lord, enable me to share the same comfort You have given to me with my children, grandchildren and others in my realm of influence.

I praise You, my God from whom all blessings flow.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
