Would you like to enlarge your understanding of the Lord today? Do you need a fresh revelation of how great our God really is? Then together let’s read all of Isaiah 40. This chapter has changed my life!! Isaiah sees Him as all-powerful and sovereign. Isaiah is also captured by the beautiful picture that He is tender and gentle as a good Shepherd. Our God is sovereign over the affairs of men and nations (good to remember this when watching the daily news). He is the creator, designer, and architect of the whole universe! But the Lord appears somewhat perplexed by the complaint of His own cherished people in verse 27. “He doesn’t see me nor does He seem to care,” they complain. To these charges against Him, the Lord emphatically reminds them that He is “more than enough” to give strength to the weary, to increase the power of the weak, and to so empower those who “wait” on Him. His people will soar into their destiny as an eagle. Lord, today let me live in the revelation of how great You are, and teach me to wait upon You, so that I may be refreshed, replenished, and revived. Lord, pour out Your Spirit on me, my family, our church family, and this nation. I worship You, great God!
