2020 Day 300 – Isaiah 37-41 and Psalms 117

Chapter 40 of the book of Isaiah begins a section of prophecy.  The prophecy is full of words of comfort to God’s people.  “Comfort, comfort my people, says your God.”  (Isaiah 40:1)  At this time they were in  Babylonian captivity and were being told to stay strong and trust that God was in total control.  “Have you not known? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary; his understanding is unsearchable.  He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might he increases strength.  Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall fall exhausted;  but they who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.” (Isaiah 40:28-31)  It is easy for us to get tired and discouraged, but these words fit in our lives today just as they did then.  The Lord and His word is an everlasting strength for us.  “The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever.” (Isaiah 40:8)
