Wesley's Notes for Isaiah 40:10


40:10 His arm - He shall need no succours, for his own power shall be sufficient to govern his people, and to destroy his adversaries. His reward - He comes furnished with recompences as well of blessings for his friends, as of vengeance for his enemies. His work - He carries on his work effectually: for that is said in scripture to be before a man which is in his power.

    Isaiah Chapter 40 know that God is the creator of all thing he sit high and look down low and intercedes on our behalf. If you ever need God remember to cry out with your whole heart and he will respond with his Mighty power to do what we cannot do in our own strength .Before the foundation of the world Gen1 He did not need us then and he surely does not need us now. No one instruction and advise.

    Verse 23 shows that no matter how powerful a high official is or corrupt a judge is, when it comes to Jehovah God fulfilling his promises and accomplishing his will, He regards them as insignificant. They can only do what God allows them to do.

    I learn a lot from this verse, things that I am doing without considering that God can answer me with time.I was always waiting for God to answer me immediately, now I learn that I must be patient and trust in him. I like this commends and I will follow to learn more. As from today I will always wait as per 1 Corrinthians 15 :51 Amen!
