indeed, we had the sentence of death within ourselves so that we would not trust in ourselves, but in God who raises the dead; 2 Corinthians 1:9
How do we deal with death and despair? How can our human minds even comprehend losing the life of a loved one or our own life? God will comfort you through this! Yes that’s right, as difficult as life may seem we are given eternal hope and comfort through Jesus Christ
Now you might say, well these are just words for people to feel better. No God demonstrated this hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ! If your looking for a historical event that you could place all your hope on it’s the resurrection of Christ
who delivered us from so great a peril of death, and will deliver us, He on whom we have set our hope. And He will yet deliver us, 2 Corinthians 1:10
God will deliver us from the sting of death because Jesus defeated death at Calvary! When you understand this, you have the blessed hope and comfort from God that only he can provide. Nobody else can provide you this hope and comfort!
you also joining in helping us through your prayers, so that thanks may be given by many persons on our behalf for the favor bestowed on us through the prayers of many. 2 Corinthians 1:11
Regardless of what this world says, Prayer is a powerful weapon! Pray for hope and strength, pray for peace and comfort, most importantly pray for one another as brothers and sisters in Christ. Jesus is your comfort and deliverance Amen!
