sermonette: The God of All Comfort
Healing The Brokenhearted
David C. Grabbe
Given 19-May-12; Sermon #1102s; 19 minutes
David Grabbe, focusing on the Godly characteristic of comfort, a trait as much ascribed to the God in the Old Testament as to the God of the New Testament, explores Scriptural references throughout the Psalms and Isaiah. Psychologists have proclaimed that if we were deprived of comfort as a youth, we will be maladjusted later in life, ranging from preserving our own space, appeasing, feeling abandoned, controlling, or staying under the radar. Such maladjustments carry over into our marriages and/or relationships with others. If we have failed to receive comfort in our formative years from our human parents, we still have the God of all comforts as our Father, as well as a sympathetic Elder Brother, who heals and comforts us.
