Bible text(s)

Words of Hope

1“Comfort my people,” says our God. “Comfort them!

2Encourage the people of Jerusalem.

Tell them they have suffered long enough

and their sins are now forgiven.

I have punished them in full for all their sins.”

3A voice cries out,

“Prepare in the wilderness a road for the LORD!

Clear the way in the desert for our God!

Isaiah 40:1-3GNBOpen in Bible reader

Suffering is a reality in a broken world. Scripture acknowledges this reality, but points us to the transforming presence of God in our lives, regardless of our circumstances, and the words of hope he speaks over our world
