Elder Chris looks at Isaiah 40 where it gives us encouragement during difficult times. He examines why Isaiah was writing these words. The nation of Israel had been given everything they needed by God, but because of their disobedience for 490 years, they would spend 70 years outside of their homeland. So chapters 1 through 39 are of judgment, but chapter 40 changes tone to comfort the people as even though men come and go, His word would endure forever and the son was coming. Those that look to the Lord for help and not their own infirmaties will find strength in Him.
