Today’s Bible Reading – 22 Mar 2021

As I was reading 2nd Corinthians today, these verses from chapter one stood out. In this passage Paul talks about how God comforts us through all our troubles and suffering. And with the comfort God gives us we will be able to comfort others. But there is one thing we must do to receive God’s comfort, look at verse 9. Folks, we must stop relying on ourselves and learn to rely only on God! It’s that easy, turn your troubles, whatever it may be, and let God handle it.

2 Corinthians 1:3-7 NLT
All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is our merciful Father and the source of all comfort. [4] He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us. [5] For the more we suffer for Christ, the more God will shower us with his comfort through Christ. [6] 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. [7] We are confident that as you share in our sufferings, you will also share in the comfort God gives us.
