The best comfort comes from those who understand. The greatest comfort overcomes the worst pain. Real comfort brings peace in knowing all is well.

When you’re one of God’s people, all is well. He understands what it’s like. He overcomes the worst pain and the biggest enemies. He speaks tenderly. He cares for you.

“Comfort, comfort my people,

    says your God.

Speak tenderly to Jerusalem,

    and proclaim to her

that her hard service has been completed,

    that her sin has been paid for,

that she has received from the Lord’s hand

    double for all her sins.”

(Isaiah 40:1-2)
