Israel's Comfort Our Comfort

As Israel faced captivity by Babylon, God both warns and comforts them... In the face of impending calamity, God gives Israel reassurance. Verse ten is a sentiment repeated often to Israel throughout the O.T. It is not for them only, but for all who rely on God as their hope in times of trouble. It remains a reassurance for Christians today who look to God to deliver them from this “world of sorrow and sin.”
Scripture: Isaiah 41:8-20
