2 Corinthians 7:6 KJV
Nevertheless God, that comforteth those that are cast down, comforted us by the coming of Titus;

It is given almost as a name for God, certainly as a description. God comforts those that are cast down.
• It is His nature to do so.
• It is the consistent quality of the Lord.

Since we may all be cast down through different circumstances the type of comfort might be different for each of us. In this case Paul was comforted be the coming of a friend. Titus' presence brought comfort. But Titus also brought word of the testimony and response of the Corinthians to His first letter. Hearing of how well they received his rebuke that they had repented had brought great joy to him.

Depend upon this; God comforts the cast down. If you are now downcast, and you have trouble finding God's comfort, look for it in some small way, some way that your troubled heart might have a difficult time seeing. It is a promise, a sure thing: God has comfort for you.
