II Corinthians 1:3 and 4

vs. 3 and 4 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.

Notice here that the Scripture doesn’t say God will remove our troubles, or rescue us from them. It says He will comfort us in them. He is the Father of compassion, the Author and Beginner of compassion, and the God of all comfort. He will comfort us in all our troubles. This is a promise, a promise that comes with a responsibility. We must share the comfort we have received with others, giving testimony to His compassion.
