Isaiah 40 leaves no doubt that God is awesome!
Nothing can stop him, his word endures forever, he comes with power and a mighty arm, he is gentle and tender, has got the whole world in his hands, is all wise, to him we are like dust, he brings princes and rulers to nothing, he knows every star by name and calls them out each night – nothing compares to him, he has no equal.
Yet, at times we wonder if he has forgotten or disregarded us. We even complain that God isn’t doing a good job of running the world.
Even in those weary and weak moments, God comes to us with compassion and commitment. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength.
Let’s pray for one another to grow in awe of God – from Isaiah over the next 2 months – so we hope in him alone.
In Christ, Tory Cayzer.
