Guess Who’s Here?

But God, who comforts the downcast, comforted us by the coming of Titus.—2 CORINTHIANS 7:6 NIV

It’s amazing whom God chooses to comfort us. He can use anyone—so what happens when the person God sends is the last person you ever expected to see? How do we respond? Do we let past judgments about certain people keep us from seeing what they’re doing now? Are we hesitant to accept their help? Or maybe we’re angry that they showed up at all.

With God’s help, though, our wariness can transform into the comfort we need. First, we can believe that God sent this person to us at this time. Second, we can trust that God is keeping His eye on everything that happens. Third, we can ask God to take away our pride, which hinders us from being grateful for their help. Finally, we can just graciously accept the help being offered.

In the Bible, we see God using people from varied backgrounds to offer help or comfort to His people. From a woman protecting spies, to a boy with some fish, to a man who went from persecutor to persecuted, God used them.

Let’s allow God to show us how He can use this person—the one we least expected—to be a source of comfort to us. 

Dear Father, I know You have a reason for sending particular people into my life. Thank You for providing comfort through them at this time.
