Today we’re all in Isaiah. Please read Isaiah 40, 41, 42, 43, and 44:1-5: I love all of this and I want to highlight everything. What is your take-a-way today?
“Prepare the way of the Lord; Make straight in the desert
A highway for our God. Every valley shall be exalted
And every mountain and hill brought low;
The crooked places shall be made [b]straight
And the rough places smooth;
The glory of the Lord shall be revealed, And all flesh shall see it together;
For the mouth of the Lord has spoken” (Isaiah 40:3-5 NKJV)
Know what I think about exalting valleys and bringing low mountains? I think that what God made possible for Jesus is what He’ll make possible for you as you serve Him. What mountain is in your way? As you serve the Lord, He’ll make your impossible possible!
In Isaiah 40:6-8, in the middle of being comforted, the instruction was to “cry out”. Cry out about the Word of God, make God valuable and more important than anything else – that will put everything else in perspective. So many benefits to being His child throughout these chapters. I’ve adopted Isaiah 44:1-5 as a promise about my children, many years ago. Today was lots of comfort!
