Strength to Comfort

My side lost the last election. When I look at what the people who won are doing, I grow grim with fear. In their anger and greed, those people are wrecking my country, but grim with fear is not is not good =>

Grim | Definition of Grim by Merriam-Webster (merriam-webster.com)

.

When we grow grim our tendency is to grow angry, to lash out at the people we think responsible for our troubles. Yet it would be better if we first sought and gave comfort.

Should we fight for truth and justice? Yes! But we should fight joyfully, not fearfully and grimly.

Consider this Psalm of David. David was a warrior king who fought dangerous enemies all his life. He fought best, most courageously and joyously, when He remembered his fate was in the hands of our Lord.

Prayer for Help against Persecutors.

For the music director. A Psalm of David; for a memorial.

70 God, hurry to save me;
Lord, hurry to help me!
May those who seek my [a]life
Be put to shame and humiliated;
May those who delight [b]in my harm
Be turned back and dishonored.
May those who say, “Aha, aha!” be [c]turned back
Because of their shame.

May all who seek You rejoice and be glad in You;
And may those who love Your salvation say continually,
“May God be exalted!”
But I am afflicted and needy;
Hurry to me, God!
You are my help and my savior;
Lord, do not delay.

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.

2Corinthians 1:3-4

These two little verses actually come from the greeting Paul is bringing to the Corinthian church at the beginning of the letter he is sending them. Back in those days, this kind of a flattering and, if I may say so, flowery greeting was customary. Today we might say that it checks a box in the stylebook of that day for a proper letter, and as readers we might just tear through the greeting to get to the meat of the letter. Yet, if we were to simply zip through these verses to get to the good part, we would be doing…

One thought on “Strength to Comfort

  1. Tom.

    The political news lately is grim and gloomy especially if we discern that what is being reported seems be repeating the same paths of folly we already experienced of the past.

    Prayer will comfort us spiritually, but mentally, I find the best comfort mentally is to hopefully believe in the ancient story of King Solomon rewarding a sage who came up with the words, “This too shall pass” again in the USA in the next election.

    Hopefully, the next election we will reverse the foolish path direction again. Especially when voters start experiencing higher taxes and inflation which is sure to result in my opinion.

    Regards and goodwill blogging.
