Today's Passage: Isaiah 40:1-11
I had to actually look up the word comfort in the dictionary. My mind goes immediately to "giving rest" and "protection". But here's how my dictionary defined the word:
comfort |ˈkəmfərt| nounThis passage is a passage about God's comfort for his people. It is a passage of salvation, or how God has freed us from the bondage of sin, and consoles us in anxious times. God comforts us in a world of darkness by providing the light in the world. Coool.
1 a state of physical ease and freedom from pain or constraint
2 consolation for grief or anxiety
I am personally comforted by the fact that God is never changing. He is who he says He is. I can put my trust in Him, and know that I am in good hands. I hope this can be a comfort to you, too.
