Isaiah 40 is designed to take your focus away from everything else and consider the Sovereign Lord, the one true, living God.
  • In these verses we have rhetorical questions to help us understand the Lord’s attributes. Sadly, we aren’t inclined to dwell on the awesome attributes of God. We are nudged this way by the previous verses, which spoke of good news being spread widely and loudly (verse 9).
  • Earlier this week, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot had big news — the city is opening up its iconic Lakefront Trail after months of being closed off as part of a COVID-19 lockdown.
  • As a father pities his children, So the Lord pities those who fear Him.
  • GETTING THE MESSAGE/Isaiah 40:9-11
    In verses 6-8, the Lord directed us to focus on men, their power and righteousness. He wants us to see that there is a reality beyond what we can see in external appearances.

  • So then, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath;
  • Isaiah 40 is a chapter every Christian should become familiar with. Handel’s majestic musical composition, “The Messiah,” begins with the first two verses of this chapter, which we are looking at today. The musical uses Scripture about the promise of Christ’s coming and the fulfillment of Christ’s promised work, the saving of sinners to the glory of God. Isaiah 40 is a good place to begin.
  • On March 24, President Donald Trump said he wanted the country and the economy “opened up and just raring to go by Easter.”
