Advent 2022 – Day 11: Isaiah 40:10-11

Behold, the Lord God comes with might, and his arm rules for him; behold, his reward is with him, and his recompense before him. He will tend his flock like a shepherd; he will gather the lambs in his arms; he will carry them in his bosom, and gently lead those that are with young.

Isaiah 40:10-11, ESV

At Advent, we look back at why Jesus had to come, that He came, and then that He will come again.

Our sins have stacked up to heaven, deeper and more vile than we could know.

We have cut ourselves off from God, run from Him in our rebellion, and chosen to ignore Him.

Yet He has prepared this world for Himself, prophesying He would come for us and what it would look like, and He put it into writing through the prophets who spoke for Him.

And although we have done everything to push Him away, He has come after us.

We have kicked and screamed, run and hid, and complained and whined against God.

Yet, God came to us, comforting us amidst our sin and redeeming us from that sin.

He left the comforts of heaven to personally prepare us for Himself. He spoke through the Prophets, and John pointed us to Him, but He also came to this wilderness of a world to seek His lost sheep and draw them near.

He is strong enough to save us and hold us safely and securely.

May we seek the Lord who gives us confort, preparing ourselves by seeking His mighty and safe arms.
