Isaiah 40

1 - Soaring Like Eagles

"They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like     eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint." (Isaiah 40:31)

Real Comfort

What if you believed that this Christmas you would receive “double for all your sins.” Would you find that comforting? You might say, “That depends … double what?” If it were double the punishment, then you would surely not take comfort. However, as God proclaims the coming of the Saviour of the world through the words of Isaiah, He brings comfort indeed.
