Comfort My People

Beloved, do you long for true joy in your life?  Do you feel like your life has no value—that you are just a number?

Do you believe the darkness of your past—
your sins, your failures,
even your shortcomings—
have made you useless to God?
Unredeemable?

Maybe you are a believer who has been convinced by the enemy that you could never really serve God.
You believe you are ungifted and too untalented to possibly be needed in the church.

In Isaiah 40-66 the Lord told Isaiah to speak
kind words to Israel.
He wanted to comfort His people with His words.
After their punishment for sins, there will be great restoration for them.
This study will give you a taste of the world's future.
