Outline For Scripture Union Daily Guide 24 February 2024

From the beginning of his book, prophet Isaiah had been speaking about God punishing Judah and Israel because of their sins and disobedience. But now he is preaching comfort for God’s people (v.1). In v.2, he speaks of people having received double punishment for their sins but now God shows love to them and invites them to talk about their failings (1:18). How does this encourage us as believers? God loves and comforts repentant sinners. Feel encouraged to come to God with your failures and receive His promised comfort.

Vs.3 and 4 call for the preparation of a way in the wilderness for the coming of our God and probably also for returnees from exile. These words were quoted by John when teaching about the coming of Jesus (John 1:23). Wilderness and desert may stand for trials in life that we must work through so we can have a good relationship with the Lord. Things are not always easy. We must fight our way through them for the glory of our God to be revealed in our lives (v.5). We are human beings who are transitory (vs.6-8). Time to prepare for the coming of the Lord is now. We cannot keep procrastinating.

• Any new insight or reinforcement of what you already know?

Closing Prayer
My Lord Jesus Christ, please help me identify and remove all things that mess up my relationship with you

Prayer for the week
• Pray that God will revive His zeal in the hearts of believers, so that there will be more passion for His work. • Pray for grace and knowledge to sustain the revival • Pray against spiritual coldness and loss of spiritual sensitivity among believers.

Offer a prayer of faith in line with Psalm 37:39
