3. What specifically do you think Isaiah was hoping in God for? (v.17) What was he waiting on God to do?
4. How many verses from the book of Psalms can you find that speak about waiting on God? What is the outcome often associated with that? 5. Why do you think it’s sometimes necessary to wait on God? What are some reasons he may not act as quickly as we’d like?
6. What is the most difficult thing for you about waiting on God?
7. What are some ways we can be encouraging to others who are in a “season of waiting”?
8. What did you find helpful or challenging about the message?
