Isaiah 40:1-31

8   Contrasts frailty of humanity with the enduring nature of the Word of God

13   “Spirit” implies the mind, thoughts, and influence of God.

14   1 Corinthians 1:25   God’s foolishness is wiser than human wisdom, and God’s weakness is stronger than human strength.

20   Our greatest idol today is self.

23   Compared to God and the Lord Jesus Christ who is called the Lord of Lords and King of Kings; the nations and rulers are nothing.

28   2 Peter 3:8 …with the Lord one day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years like one day.

God can give us the strength and vitality to endure, remain faithful, and remain loyal.

Let us turn from idols, serve the living and true God, and wait.
