Discussion for Isaiah 40

    Isaiah 40:31 has been a lifter to my soul. In one of my deepest despair this Scripture gave me
    peace and comfort for what I was going through. It gave me strength.
  • Joshua McAdow
    During the reading of God's Word something was brought to my attention that Jesus might be trying to tell someone right now. We are all going to fall in love with something beautiful in this life. That thing or person or concept will not last very long even in this life our time is short. But one thing is for sure God's Word will stay with us forever. If we invest in the temporary we will only gain temporary rewards. But there is opportunity to invest in something eternal. We ought to pick one thing today that we know is eternal like the sharing of God's Word even at the expense of something we else might do. Amen.

    Verse 15 shows that no matter how great and mighty a nation may be, they amount to a "drop of a bucket" in his eyes.

    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.
