God has always been a God of comfort. We need Him today to bring comfort and refreshing in these times. The Lord brings comfort right to us when we need it the most. His comfort comes with his actions on our behalf. Comfort is a state of physical ease or freedom from pain or distress. It comes to ease a personal from grief, and sorrows. It is to soothe, to strengthen greatly. Jesus came as the word a direct loving response from God to bring comfort to the people of that day. They were poor and controlled by the religious leaders. Jesus came to bring comfort to the people not religion to soothe and ease them from their distress. Jesus brought comfort in this way; if someone were sick he healed them if they were oppressed he set them free. Whatever pain or situation Jesus brought comfort lasting comfort. Jesus brought comfort during the storm, not after but well it was going on.
