Our Sovereign Creator Saves
Passage: Isaiah 40:25-31, Isaiah 49:14-16
Memory Verse for the Week: Isaiah 49:13-15 (ESV)
Sing for joy, O heavens, and exult, O earth; break forth, O mountains, into singing! For the LORD has comforted his people and will have compassion on his afflicted. But Zion said, “The LORD has forsaken me; my Lord has forgotten me.” Can a woman forget her nursing child, that she should have no compassion on the son of her womb? Even these may forget, yet I will not forget you.
Intro: Remember that a prophet was a covenant attorney …
GOD IS GREAT, GOD IS GOOD
What does it mean that the LORD is transcendent and immanent?
In pride and unbelief, how do we act like God doesn’t care?
THE ART OF GOD'S WORK
Why can you trust the LORD in His saving work?
YOU CAN PRAY WITH US ...
1. Worship the LORD, God Almighty for His power and authority as Creator. Praise Him, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, for His infinite holiness, both in time (He is eternal) and space (He is all-present).
2. How do you live complaining as if God does not really regard your needs? Confess your unbelief and pride to Jesus asking Him to forgive you and heal your thinking to see how powerful and loving He is.
3. Give thanks to Jesus for His atoning work (His death) and healing power (His resurrection). Thank Him for being wounded and healed in our place – and for bearing the scars to testify to our salvation by His grace.
4. Who do you know that is weary and fainting, no matter the cause? Pray for them asking the LORD to renew them and give them His strength, by His love and grace.
5. Ask the Holy Spirit to work into you His understanding and wisdom. In light of His boundless knowledge, the One who calls all the stars by name and not one is missing, pray for grace to know HIM.
