Shelter in the Time of Storm

2020 THEME: TRUTH

SERIES: Promises, Promises

TITLE:  Shelter in the Time of Storm

Scripture:  Isaiah 40: 3-27

 

“Life is like an onion, which one peels crying.”

“Where you are down and out, something always turns up-and it’s usually the noses of your friends.” Orson Welles.

“Life is a tough proposition, and the first hundred years are the hardest.” Mizner

I.    HERE COME THE STORMS! 

Life is filled with (stress fractures), with storms.

II.   TRUTHS THAT SHELTER US  

“What comes to our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us.” A.W. Tozer

Isaiah 40 tells us some important truths about God:

1. God’s Word (stands forever).  Turn to Zephaniah 3:17
2. The (Greatness) of God.  (Verses 10-11)  In Exodus 6:6 God says, “I will redeem you by a mighty hand and an outstretched arm.”
3. The (Unequalness) of God.  Another way -> God’s (Omnipotence). (Verse 12-14)
4. The (Incomparability) of God. (Verses 18-19a, 21-23)  But the cream of the verses is verse 25

Remind ourselves of Tozer’s statement again: “What comes to mind when we think about God is the most important thing about us.”
