Knowing More of Him (Revelation 21:4)

As you go through a trial, remember that it is God’s desire for you to live life without sorrow.  There will come a day when all of your sorrow will be gone, but until that time, he will provide to you a comforter instead of a deliverer.

God wants you to experience each facet of his greatness.  Deliverer, Judge, Ruler and King are aspects of him that we greatly desire to see and experience.  However, God wants you to know him as comforter, burden bearer, and guide.  You can only know the latter by experiencing difficulties in your life.  If you want to know him, you must follow him to where he leads.  Because it is only in those places that you can more fully learn of him.
