Words of Comfort

July 2024

Dear friends,

There are precious parts of the Bible that can speak to us at times of hurt, struggle or disappointment. One of those is Chapter 40 of the book of Isaiah. It was first spoken to the people of Israel when they were in exile – defeated, humiliated, and forced to live in a strange and foreign land, uncertain what their future would be.

The chapter begins with the words, ‘Comfort, comfort my people, says your God,’ and goes on to meditate on the wonder of God’s glory seen in creation and in human life. It concludes with the assurance that, although even the most powerful people will sometimes stumble and fall, those who put their trust in God ‘will renew their strength … they will walk and not be faint.’

Somebody has written this about this part of the Bible:
"The prophet is commissioned to preach to a people whose faith is burnt out, whose morale is gone, whose hope is extinguished, and to tell such people that their God is alive, he does care, and he is about to return to them".

At the times when our faith seems to fail, and it is hard to see a way forward, passages such as Isaiah chapter 40 can bring us God’s word of comfort and hope.

Revd John Waller
