Discussion for Isaiah 40

  • Peter A. Okebukola
    I am encouraged as I wait upon the Lord today that "But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint."

    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.
