Minister Comfort

HAVE YOU ever been amazed to find that when our Father gave you comfort in your suffering, you were then placed in someone else’s life to comfort them during a similar struggle?

“Our God has said:” in Isaiah 40 verse 1, “Encourage my people! Give them comfort.”

Those involved in First Nations ministry often suffer through numerous hardships, only to be revived by the Creator’s faithfulness, and then sent out again to minister comfort to others.

TODAY, I INVITE YOU to pray with me that our Creator will faithfully continue to comfort our Native American people and those serving in Native Ministry.

2 Corinthians 1:4-5 says, “He comforts us when we are in trouble, so that we can share the same comfort with others in trouble. We share in the terrible sufferings of Christ, but also in the wonderful comfort he gives.”

Ask our Creator to use others to encourage and comfort our First Nations people and those serving in Native Ministry.

I like to study with 5 translations. As you go through these studies, I encourage you to do the same. “The Scriptures” is a translation that includes the original Hebrew names and has the books in chronological order. The Contemporary English Version (CEV) is a translation that is written for ‘oral tradition’ peoples and it flows well while reading it aloud. The Amplified version is one where meanings of words and phrases are ‘amplified’ for better understanding. The King James Version (KJV) is the translation that works well with Strong’s Concordance. The Complete Jewish Bible (CJB) is a great companion version that I find gives great insight.

2 Corinthians 1:3-7; Romans 15:4; Hebrews 2:18; Hebrews 4:15-16; Acts 14:22.
