When uncertain circumstances confront us, Christians should strive to speak clearly and display steady composure. Alistair Begg explains that this response to difficulty results from waiting on God. “Waiting,” though, doesn’t just mean inactivity. Instead, it involves a commitment to unfaltering obedience, unwavering trust, and uninterrupted communion with God that demonstrates the reality of our genuine hope.
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.
