Self-reliance and dogged determination may be attributes our culture values, but they often lead to defeat and despair. Alistair Begg challenges our preoccupation with our own abilities, encouraging us instead to consider that we find God’s provision when we acknowledge our weakness. God strengthens His people through His power, renewing and equipping them for victory in the Christian life.
Comfort In Chaos
What could be more appropriate in an age of anxiety than a message from God that speaks comfort in the midst of chaos? In Isaiah’s day, the people had lost sight of God and His greatness. Without this reference point, every aspect of their lives showed evidence of stress fractures. In this series from Isaiah 40:31, Alistair Begg directs our gaze to the transcendence of God. These ancient words speak with timeless relevance, encouraging the weary, correcting the faulty, and reminding the forgetful that God is not too great to care—but that He is too great ever to fail.
