Words of comfort: "The voice that cry out in the wilderness" Isaiah 40;3

What is the essence of crying out in the wilderness? What comfort can be derived from such an utterance?
What of the outcome of such proclamation of words?

The cry out, is deferring to the power of a higher authority. The comforter  is being aware of help that can come from a source greater than self. It has the propensity to make straight the road in a  "dessert of the wilderness". A wilderness that can become a pathway to exalt valleys; make mountain and hills lower; crooked road to be made straight, and make rough spots smoother.

The clincher is the source of your "Strength". That being said, even the strongest of us get tired at times, but the power of a higher authority and strength never diminish. The youth who is full of vigor shall faint and be weary, young men shall ultimately fall; but those who wait on the Lord; shall "renew their strength". Albeit, as we mount-up and soar like eagles. When we do, one shall run; and not be weary, and one shall walk, and not be faint.

Never become too tired or too busy to listen and help others. Always be aware to know who is your source of strength, and most importantly; where it comes from. When life is closing in or crushing you and you cannot seem to find or go another step. Remember, you need only knock, seek or ask, and it shall be given to you. And when you do just that-the annuals of the channels of the source of power shall be available to you. Through that process; God can renew your 'Strength". This will translate to the "words of comfort"-that is the ultimate comforter...

OBEY: Where are you not obeying God?

How do you start obeying:
It might be acknowledging and confessing your sins
It may be reconciling with self and others

Where are you not "Obeying?"
Is it "Forgiveness?"
Is it "Pride" or "Cavalier Arrogance?"
Is it "Destruction" of others and relationships. When you do it to the least of these....

On-Point Insights: To Obey is better than Sacrifice...

To Obey is better than Sacrifice...

In the old Testament Bible it grieved Samuel heart that King Saul was disobedient to God. Because Saul did not obey God, and even lied about it-which rendered it a "Sin".  And so; God regret that he had made Saul a King.You see In the context that Saul committed the "Sin"; he did not follow God's Instructions. Which means he missed the mark. He did not do the things that God decreed him to do. God said, "It repenteth me" causing him to regret the favor  Kingship bestowed upon Saul. (1 Sam 15:10-12)

In building the Kingdom of God. You shant not build a monument unto your self; but do it; in Honor of God.
Now, we all sin and fall short of the glory of God. We are just sinners but for his "Grace" we are saved. If you should sin, and we all do; its important not to hide it. Whatever, is done in darkness; will eventually come the the light. And if you think nobody will know, if you hide it from others-just remember God always know.

To love God is to obey him, his will, his ways, and his desires. The goal is; always obey what we know. We are creatures of habit. We don't always obey what we know. When we know better-we should better.When we don't there is consequences for our sins. In the end, obedience is more than sacrifice.

We need not think about doing any heavy physical things for God. What God wants: Is for us to to listen for his instructions and to obey them, in doing so; we obey him.
The results shall be: God revealing himself to us-for a deeper and better relationship with him
