There are various ways which God uses to comfort us.
He comforts us by his Holy Spirit who lives in our hearts.
But God also comforts us by circumstances, and what happens to us and around us.
We tend to think most of the time, that God comforts us by his Holy Spirit, and he does. But how often we think about the circumstances in our life, which God uses to comfort us?
The Bible says that everything works for good, for those who love the Lord.
In 2 Corinthians 1:3-10, we can see that our God the Father comforts us in all our trials, and I believe that refers primarily to God comforting us by his Holy Spirit.
But if we look at 2 Corinthians 7:6, 7 we can see how God used Titus, to comfort Apostle Paul. So God uses circumstances to comfort us too, even though, often we do not recognise that.
And the comfort Paul received, was not just by the coming of Titus, but also by the comfort other Christian believers gave Titus. So, all that is about what happened to Titus, and then in turn to Paul.
We are thankful to our caring God and Father, in the name of Jesus, that he uses not only his Holy Spirit to comfort us on the inside, but the circumstances in our life on the outside, to comfort us too.
