I just read this:
“Divine comfort does not come to us in any mysterious or arbitrary way. It comes as the result of a divine method. The indwelling Comforter brings to our remembrance comforting things concerning our Lord. If we believe them, we are comforted by them”.
(Taken from Hannah Whitall Smith, The God of All Comfort, page 34)
If we believe. Big words.
The choice is ours.
