Just think of the consolations!

The consolations of God - Sixteenth and final in a series

The consolations of the Lord are all around us, above us, within, without, and continually or specially presented, surprising us or overwhelming our hearts by the particular understanding of his nearness and love.

Now, our God, we give you thanks, and praise your glorious name. (1 Ch 29:13)

The Consolation Passage:

Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God. For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also aboundeth by Christ. And whether we be afflicted, it is for your consolation and salvation, which is effectual in the enduring of the same sufferings which we also suffer: or whether we be comforted, it is for your consolation and salvation. (2 Cor 1:3-6)
