The God of all comfort

The God of all comfort
(J. R. Miller, “Ministry of Comfort” 1898)
“The Father of compassion—and the God of all comfort.” 2 Corinthians 1:3
There is a blessing in true human sympathy.
God sends our friends to us, to bring us little measures of His own love—little cupfuls of His grace.
But He Himself is the only true comforter.
His love alone—is great enough to fill our heart,an d His hand alone—has skill to bind up our wounds.
However deep the sorrow may be—if we creep into God’s bosom, and nestle there like a tired child in the mother’s arms—
God’s love will enfold and embrace us, and flow into our heart—and we shall be comforted, satisfied.”
As a mother comforts her child—so will I comfort you.” Isaiah 66:13
