The Word of the Week

The Comforter

May 14, 2018

“This is what the Lord says, I will give my people a river of peace and prosperity.  The wealth of the nations will flow to her. Her children will be nursed at her breasts, carried in her arms, and held on her lap. I will comfort you there…as a mother comforts her child. Isaiah 66:12-13

HAPPY MOTHER’s DAY to you all!

I find it comforting in Isaiah to reflect his message in Chapter 66. Isaiah is considered the greatest Prophet in the bible and his writings are the first of the writings of all the Prophets. The office of Prophets was started during the last of the Judges during Samuel’s days because the Lord new of the continuing rebellion and unfaithfulness of his people. As God’s special messenger to His people of Judah, in Chapter 66, Isaiah gives words of hope and comfort like a mother gives a child. No matter how awful we can be at times, God offers through his Son the Christ, forgiveness, comfort and hope. Imagine this strong man of God, Isaiah the Prophet standing before the people, fearlessly continually proclaiming God’s word for 60 years before he was executed to death. Listen to his message in relations to your own life and be renewed.

The Lord told Isaiah to let the people know how much he loves all the believers. Just like the birth of a baby can not be stopped, God’s love for his people can not be stopped and he will save and comfort us. Christ would come as a suffering servant the first time and his second coming would be to save us and live with us eternally. God will not leave his work of national restoration undone, unfinished. God says, “As surely as my new heavens and earth will remain, so will you always be my people with a name that will never disappear” Is 66: 22. Consider Isaiah whose name still exists today and rings out with joy!

We as believers should continue to look for opportunities to feed the hungry, work for justice, obey God’s Word, heal the sick, fight diseases, take care of the children and take up His causes. This way you surely will be among those who will be richly blessed and comforted. Be Blessed from Dr. Dowe Medical Clinic.
