Great is Thy Faithfulness 
by Larry Burkett

May 24

Abundant Comfort

Psalms 42, 53, 58, 81, 101, 111 , 130, 131, 141, 146
"Just as the sufferings of Christ are ours in abundance, so also our comfort is abundant through Christ" (2 Corinthians 1:5).

Often those God has used most effectively are the ones who have suffered the greatest trials.

Perhaps no principle in God's Word is less understood than that of brokenness. Brokenness does not mean broke financially; it's a condition during which God allows circumstances to control our lives to the point that we must totally depend on Him.

It seems the greater God's plan for a person, the greater the brokenness. The life of the apostle Paul reflects both great power and great brokenness. Yet Paul never considered his personal circumstances as punishment. He consistently asserted that his sufferings were a direct result of service to Christ.

Dear Lord, I am totally dependent on You. Please help me in all the circumstances over which I have no control. I ask you in Jesus Name. Amen.
