TOPIC: Comfort From Above

TEXTIsaiah 51: 1-11(NKJV)

STUDY: Isaiah is the Lord’s ‘comforting’ words to the discouraged people of Judah exiled in Babylon. In our text today, God drew the attention of the weary exiled to the life of their patriarch, Abraham and Sarah, to whom He made and fulfilled His promises (Gen. 12:1-3Josh. 21:45).

In Judah, it would appear that mercy had forsaken the righteous and the prospect of salvation seemed a distant mirage. In verses 7-8, Isaiah tells them not to fear, knowing that the Lord would surely comfort His people. God comforted Judah and reassured them of His imminent salvation though they suffered in the hands of mere humans (vv. 3,5&7).

He promised to return them to Jerusalem with singing, joy and gladness. Their sorrow and sighing would be no more (v.11). You may be going through difficult times now, however be comforted and encouraged when you remember the works of God (Ps. 46.12 Cor. 1:3). Hold on to God, there is the sound of abundance of rain, comfort is coming.

PRAYER: Dear God of all comfort, I rely on you today in Jesus’ name. Amen.
