Finding Strength in God

Isaiah 40:18-31

We should find our strength in God for three reasons.

  • 1. Our God is alive.(v.18-20)
  • 2. Our God is Creator.(v.21-26)
  • 3. Our God is Sustainer. (v.27-31)

Isaiah 40:18-31 18

To whom then will ye liken God? or what likeness will ye compare unto him? 19 The workman melteth a graven image, and the goldsmith spreadeth it over with gold, and casteth silver chains. 20 He that is so impoverished that he hath no oblation chooseth a tree that will not rot; he seeketh unto him a cunning workman to prepare a graven image, that shall not be moved. 21 Have ye not known? have ye not heard? hath it not been told you from the beginning? have ye not understood from the foundations of the earth?22 It is he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in: 23 That bringeth the princes to nothing; he maketh the judges of the earth as vanity. 24 Yea, they shall not be planted; yea, they shall not be sown: yea, their stock shall not take root in the earth: and he shall also blow upon them, and they shall wither, and the whirlwind shall take them away as stubble. 25 To whom then will ye liken me, or shall I be equal? saith the Holy One. 26 Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who hath created these things, that bringeth out their host by number: he calleth them all by names by the greatness of his might, for that he is strong in power; not one faileth. 27 Why sayest thou, O Jacob, and speakest, O Israel, My way is hid from the Lord, and my judgment is passed over from my God? 28 Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding. 29 He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength. 30 Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall: 31 But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

  1. In December of last year I promised to stand in a gap and lead a group of precious 35-45 year old ladies in Sunday school until another person more knowledgeable could be found to teach the group. We have a very small church in South Georgia and our group normally averages 5-8 ladies in attendance each week. I am a 65 years oId. I know that I am a not a great teacher. I am often so afraid that I might misinterpret a scripture or that I might indirectly say something that could direct a person away from the message God intends for them.
    I am so grateful to God to have found Brother Ben. This website has helped me so much in my studies through his discussion of God’s word! I prayed for God to help me understand the book of Isaiah. I am not technologically smart so I could not have found this on my own. God directed me here. I praise God for this much needed outreach.
    Thank you Canton Baptist and Brother Ben Jennings. I pray for God’s blessings over you as you lead.
    Love Through Christ Jesus,
    Pamela M. Haymans
