Where Do You Find Relief?
God told Isaiah to comfort his people. Wouldn’t be nice to get a little of that? There is always an overabundance of suffering and pain. Comfort seems to be in short supply.
The very first thing God told Isaiah to do was to speak to the heart of Jerusalem and tell her about forgiveness. Forgiveness is a powerful thing. Forgiveness from God is life-changing. It lifts an eternal weight off our conscience and breathes life into a weary soul. Never underestimate the power of forgiveness.
Then he told Isaiah to remind people not to put their hope in power or the plans of people. Human beings don’t have the depth or the insight to solve problems older and deeper than we are. Look to God for salvation and solutions.
Finally, he tells us that God is here! He is with us in power. He is with us in love. He cares for us as our Good Shepherd. We are not alone. Our God is with us now and forever in love and forgiveness and welcome. What a comforting thought. What a comforting reality!
