Text: Isaiah 40:1-2 “Comfort ye, comfort ye my people saith your God. Speak ye comfortably to Jerusalem and cry unto her, that her warfare is accomplished, that her iniquity is pardoned: for she hath received of the Lord’s hand double for all her sins”
These are prophetic words for those who believe; words of comfort and assurance in time of battle. This message which prophet Isaiah gave many years ago has come to you today. It is left for you to believe. He who receives a prophet will receive the rewards of a prophet. If you believe these words today, God is going to reward you with its fulfillments. We all need the word of comfort in all that we are passing through we need comfort of the mind, for our minds to be at peace during these challenges of corona virus pandemic. We need the words of comfort to be able to face the very many uncertain we face on daily basis. In our various situations we need the comfort of God and He has not failed in sending His words to us.
I do not want us to forget that the message of prophet Isaiah went to people who were suffering as a result of their sins . Our God is God of justice, He will not tolerate sin, yet His mercies endure forever. In Judgment He always remember mercy. This was why after the message of Judgment there comes prophecy of mercy. The message is this, in your siege I will show mercy. The siege will be over. The siege will not last forever. In Gods eyes, your problem is like a grass, your enemies are like a grasses they have short time to torment you, don’t give up!. The siege is already over. Believe it and it will manifest
Beloved, as big as your problem may seem, as dry as your wilderness may be, as lonely as your exile may appear. They will not last forever. They are temporary; in that your situation the message of God for you today is that the siege is over.
