"Comfort, comfort my people, says your God" (Is 40:1). In Is 40: 9 we are told what the comfort is:  You who bring good news to Zion, say to the towns of Judah: “Here is your God!”
 
Those who come face-to-face with death, their own death and the death of a loved one need to hear: Here is your God!”
 
"Comfort, comfort my people, says your God" (Is 40:1). Those who suffer as a result of life threatening decease have to hear these words: Your God is here!
 
"Comfort, comfort my people, says your God and your God is here" (Is 40:1, 9).
These words must be heard today by those who suffer because of broken marriage and family relationships. Young men and women who get married with so many dreams and excitement and then have to leave the marriage with pain, anger and disappointment, need to hear. And it needs to be heard by the children from these broken marriages.
 
"Comfort, comfort my people, says your God" (Is 40:1). The victims of abuse need to hear these words. Women and children who suffer behind closed doors, because of physical, sexual and emotional abuse! Orphans and widows, and child headed families, aunts and grannies looking after orphaned children and are crying for help and support need to hear: Your God is here!
 
"Comfort, comfort my people, says your God" (Is 40:1). It must be heard by those who live with unemployment and those who experience financial loss. It needs to be heard by those who are robbed and financially abused. Your God is here!
 
Listen to the Word of God:
Your God is here!
God is coming to you
and his coming means that he will grant you comfort.
You are not alone, anymore....
Because your God is here.
God is your refuge.
His grace will comfort you through faith in Jesus Christ which is a gift of his Holy Spirit.
