ICEBREAKER: What is the weirdest food combination you’ve made and tried?

1.    In the verses prior to Isaiah 40:28-31, God declares His absolute sovereignty over His creation, including the nations [Isaiah 40:10-17]. How do these words encourage you and give you God’s perspective during today’s turbulent times [cf. Psalm 47:1-9; Daniel 2:44-45; and Daniel 4:34-37]?


2.    Why is idolatry so foolish [Isaiah 40:18-20]? Also consult Isaiah 44:9-20; Isaiah 46:5-7; and Habakkuk 2:18-19.


3.    Why does pondering the created order around us foster faith in the LORD [Isaiah 40:25-27]? Also consider Psalm 8:1-9; Psalm 19:1-6; and Isaiah 42:5.


4.    How does thinking about eternal realities help you deal with present problems [Isaiah 40:28]? Also examine Nehemiah 9:5-6; Psalm 90:1-6; and Romans 11:33-36.


5.    How does the truth that the LORD never grows weary inspire you when you become weary [Isaiah 40:28-30]? Also look up Isaiah 41:10; and Jeremiah 31:25; and Romans 8:31.


6.    What does it mean to “wait for the LORD” [Isaiah 40:31]? What benefits come to those who learn to put this into practice [cf. Psalm 27:1-14; Psalm 130:1-8; and 2 Corinthians 4:16-18]?

7.    What did you find helpful or challenging about this Sunday’s message?

“The remedy for discouragement is the Word of God. When you feed your heart and mind with its truth, you regain your perspective and find renewed strength.”
