Our Hope This Christmas (Isaiah 40:27-31) - 12/24/23

INTRO

  • vv. 1-26 we see the attributes of God

  • His mercy, glory, eternality, gentleness, omnipotence, omniscience, sovereignty, and uniqueness.

  • WE SEE THE GREATNESS OF GOD

  • Yet, the people have faced the judgement of God and are in captivity.  Amid their circumstances, they have forgotten who God is. THEY ARE NOT SEEING GOD FOR WHO HE IS AND WHAT HE HAS DONE.

  • THEY HAVE LOST THEIR HOPE

The Heart of the Issue – v. 27

  • Why do you say/speak

  • Habitual attitude

  • My way is hidden

  • Right is disregarded

  • Where is God?  Why am I here?

Doubting, Wrong perspective on life

  • Trials, Discipline

  • Loss of hope.

  • Alone. Abandoned

The Truths That Matter- v. 28-29

  • Have you not Known/Heard

  • Deuteronomy 30:11-14

  • Remember, Who He is and what He does!

  • He is the everlasting God

  • The Creator of the ends of the earth

  • He does not grow faint or weary

  • His understanding is unsearchable

  • He gives power to the faint and increases strength

The Promises that Never Change – vv. 30-31

The Faint and Weary

  • Youth – Over Confidence.

  • Young men – Mature. Strength.

  • Faint – failure for loss of strength

  • Weary – exhaustion because of hardness of life.

  • LIVING IN THEIR OWN MIGHT.

BUT THOSE THAT WAIT FOR THE LORD

  • Those that Wait

  • Waits for. Hopes in.

  • Not inactivity

  • Not living in our own strength

  • A life of Patience, Seeking, Listening, Expectation Trusting

  • Hope and Perseverance

  • Dependence of God

  • Willingness to allow His will to be done

Renew their strength
