Walk Away?

"These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace.  In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer. I have overcome the world." John 16:33 NKJV

 "Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.  For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also abounds through Christ.  Now if we are afflicted, it is for your consolation and salvation, which is effective for enduring the same sufferings which we also suffer.  Or if we are comforted, it is for your consolation and salvation.  And our hope for you is steadfast, because we know that as you partake of the sufferings, so also you will partake of the consolation." 2 Corinthians 1:3-7 NKJV

Let's pray:  Dear Lord Jesus, I lift up everyone who is reading this devotional who has turned away from You.  I pray that You will soften their hearts and comfort them so that they may know how much You love them and want to help them.  I pray that You will show them Your way to life and grace and peace.  In Jesus' name. Amen.
