Day 7

Isaiah 35:1–4

God’s unconditional love is apparent throughout the many weak-kneed moments of the people of Israel and Judah. He sent prophets like Isaiah with messages for His wayward people. In Isaiah 35, the prophet shares the hope of God’s restoration. The encouragement that would come as a result of embracing hope would “strengthen the feeble hands, steady the knees that give way” (v. 3). Through the encouragement they received, God’s people would, in turn, be able to encourage others. This is why Isaiah instructs in verse 4, “Say to those with fearful hearts, ‘Be strong, do not fear.’ ”

Feeling weak-kneed? Talk to your heavenly Father. He strengthens weak knees through the truth of the Scriptures and the power of His presence. You’ll then be able to encourage others.

The challenge of Going deeper is, to be honest, that at times, we aren’t where God needs us to be or being who God needs us to be, we have let life determine us, rather than let God determine life through us. going deeper means finding that encouragement that God wants us to have from being part of the church, being in fellowship, being in his word.
