make straight in the wilderness
a highway for our God.
Every valley shall be raised up,
every mountain and hill made low;
the rough ground shall become level,
the rugged places a plain.
And the glory of the LORD will be revealed,
and all mankind together will see it.
For the mouth of the LORD has spoken.”
Isaiah 40:3-5 NIV
Prepare yourselves for His arrival!
God is coming!
He came to His people then
He comes to His people now
As we are!
Where we are!
God had chosen His people and called them to serve Him.
Even though they abandoned Him God because of His love will not abandon His people!
His period of chastisement and discipline are over!
GOD Keeps HIS Promises!
GOD ASSURES HIS PEOPLE HE IS ABLE TO CARE FOR THEM
Grace doesn’t mean that life will be easy.
The cost of discipleship means becoming a living sacrifice for God!
It means with His grace persevering and trusting Him until the end!
“A Long Obedience in the Same Direction”
Those who plod along day by day for Jesus, seeking to faithfully live and honor Him each day by trusting Him to lead and guide, find great joy and peace!
“I can Plod” said, William Carey. Ploding is how William Carey, Missionary to India and “Father of Modern Missions” lived his life!
The good news is that God is with us throughout the journey!
He supplies our strength for the journey!
Look at the God of Glory
Not though our eyes!
See God through His eyes as He revealed Himself to Isaiah!
See, the Sovereign LORD comes with power,
and his arm rules for him.
See, his reward is with him,
and his recompense accompanies him.
Is. 40:10 NIV
He tends his flock like a shepherd:
He gathers the lambs in his arms
and carries them close to his heart;
he gently leads those that have young.
Is. 40:11 NIV
God’s arm is powerful! HE is Sovereign and in complete control
God’s arm is also tender and gentle! Caring for His people as a shepherd tends sheep!
J. Hampton Keathley, III; in his study on Isaiah gives us these sub points:
His Power is Limitless (God is All-Powerful)
Who has measured the waters in the hollow of his hand,
or with the breadth of his hand marked off the heavens?
Who has held the dust of the earth in a basket,
or weighed the mountains on the scales
and the hills in a balance?
Is. 40:12 NIV
All the water on earth (Seas, Rivers, Lakes, Oceans, Polar Caps, reservoirs)
All fit in the Hollow of His hand!
He can carry all the dust and has weighed all the Mountains (hundreds of ranges!)
Rocky Mountains Ural
The Sierra Andes
Michael Jordan can palm a basketball! Perhaps you can too!
God can palm the Earth!
He can palm and slam-dunk the Universe!
His Wisdom is unsearchable (God is All-Knowing)
Who has understood the mind of the LORD,
or instructed him as his counselor?
Whom did the LORD consult to enlighten him,
and who taught him the right way?
Who was it that taught him knowledge
or showed him the path of understanding?
Is. 40:13-14 NIV
The genius behind all of creation is God’s Alone!
Every intricate aspect of creation whether visible or invisible (the physical and metaphysical
