“When we arrived in Macedonia there was no rest for us. Outside there was conflict from every direction, and inside there was fear. But God,who encourages those who are discouraged, encouraged us by the arrival of Titus.” 2 Corinthians 7:5-6
Have you ever been so discouraged that no matter what direction you seem to turn there is some sort of conflict or trial ahead of you and all you want to do is drop to the floor and cry out, “I’m done! No more - I quite!”? I know - I have been there more times than I would like to admit. There are times the pain and fatigue from my chronic illness will seem more than I can bear; the furnace breaks down; a child needs something and there is no money to spare; a loved one is dying or has just passed away - yet in all this turmoil we can take great comfort knowing that God is our Encourager! Our Heavenly Father knows exactly what we need, when we need it, and how or who He will use to provide the encouragement we need just at the right moment.
