STAND ON THE WORD WITH FRC
A TWO-YEAR BIBLE READING PLAN

TODAY'S READING: Isaiah 40

TODAY'S QUESTIONS FOR REFLECTION AND DISCUSSION

1) The fulfillment of Isaiah 40:3-5 can be found in the Gospels (see Luke 3:4-6) with the mission of John the Baptist and ministry of the Messiah, who would tend His flock like a Shepherd and carry His lambs close to His heart. How could God's people be sure these promises would be fulfilled (see v. 8)?

2) What promises are given to those who wait in dependence on the Lord (40:31)?

  1. Renew their strength
  2. Soar on wings like eagles
  3. Run and not be weary
  4. Walk and not faint
  5. All of the above

STAND ON THE WORD DEVOTIONALS

STAND COURAGEOUS DEVOTIONAL BY GEN. JERRY BOYKIN

Wait – Man as a Chaplain

– Isaiah 40:31

“Wait” … I don’t know many guys who like that word. Let’s be honest, it’s hard to wait. With Christmas approaching, we all remember as kids being made to wait through the sleepless hours of Christmas Eve, watching the clock as time crept by before we were finally given the “go” sign from our parents to come out of our rooms and tear into our gifts on Christmas morning. It was tough to wait for our first time to shoot a gun, to drive a car, and yes, for that first kiss. In general, waiting makes you feel like you are not in control of your circumstances, that you are helpless, and it can even wear you out. We want to find a way to pull ourselves up by our bootstraps and feel in control, strong and secure, but the waiting makes it hard.
