Isaiah 44 One Question to Ask When in a Valley

Isaiah 44

“But now hear…” (v 1)

“Have I not told you…” (v 8)

“Remember these things…” (v 21)

The world is so loud. So many opinions. So many voices. So many agendas.

And we wonder why people are so confused. Constantly being told that there is something more out there. Something better. Being pulled in all directions. Presented with idols at every turn.

A WORD ABOUT IDOLS (v 9-20)

{Idols – anything we chase after instead of God.}

  1. Idols are man made.
  2. Idols do not profit – they are worthless, offering us nothing in return for our efforts in creating and chasing them.

Those who chase after idols:
• grow faint
• lack discernment
• can’t see
• are deluded
• are led astray
• cannot save themselves
• can not recognize a lie

And, in response to these voices of the world, God says…

Hear me…

What have I told you…

Remember what I have said…

I love verse 8, y’all. What has God told us? And the BIG question we have to ask ourselves when we are in a valley…

DO I BELIEVE GOD’S WORD OR NOT?

After describing the disappointing and discouraging life of idol chasing – because idols lie and never satisfy – God says, “Remember these things…”

4 THINGS TO REMEMBER IN THE VALLEY (v 21-22)

  1. God formed you.
  2. God will not forget you.
  3. God has forgiven you.
  4. God has redeemed you.
