Isaiah 40:1-11

When we sit on a commercial airplane, fasten our seat belt, and feel the aircraft lifting off, we don’t see the pilot. It’s easy to assume that because the airplane is moving, the pilot is in the cockpit. We may not know the pilots’ names, how long they have been flying, or how much experience they have. All we know is that there are pilots and the aircraft is moving. We have full confidence and trust that we will arrive at our destination.

There are times that I wish I had the same trust and confidence in my journey with Jesus. There are always questions about the destination, the turbulence, the take-off, and landing. In the book of Hebrews, we read: “we who have fled to take hold of the hope set before us may be greatly encouraged. We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm, and secure” (Hebrews 6:18b-19a). The keywords for our hope are firm and secure.

That is the encouragement this passage gives us, like riding on an airplane, we have full confidence that our hope is firm and secure.
