As the exile ended and the people returned, many had lost faith in God, believing that God had neglected them and allowed them to be captured. They still did not see that it was their own disobedience and rebellion that brought punishment from God.
They seem to be accusing God in Isaiah 40:27 of being disregarded by God. Again God explains who He is and what He has provided for them.
Read Isaiah 40
- How does God answer their complaint?
- How does God describe Himself throughout this chapter? Of His characteristics, what are you most in need of today?
- Spend some time praying and preparing your heart to welcome the promised Messiah tomorrow.
