Christ does not always immediately calm the storm, but he is always willing to calm his child on the basis of his presence.
Praise be to You, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts me in all my troubles, so that I can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort I have received from You (2 Cor. 1:3-4). You are the only one who can turn misery into ministry.
Oh, the depth of the riches of Your wisdom and knowledge, O God! How unsearchable Your judgments, and Your paths beyond tracing out!
Who has known Your mind? Or who has been Your counselor? Who has ever given to You that You should repay him? For from You and through You and to You are all things. To You be the glory forever! (Rom. 11:33-36).
