“Rise Up” Isaiah 40:25-31
1. Opening: Did you participate as a child in a kids club such as GEMS or Boys Club, either at church or in the community? Share a favourite memory or an impactful experience.
2. Tiredness can be physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual. What makes you tired? On a scale of 1-10, how tired are you? Why?
3. Talk about how God is described in Isaiah 40:25-31. What feelings are evoked in you by this description?
4. What does it mean to “wait upon” or “hope in” the Lord (v31)? (Maybe it brings someone to mind as an example.) How could you do more of waiting/hoping in God in the coming weeks, to address whatever tiredness you’re feeling?
5. In v31, renewed strength is described in terms of running/walking and soaring like an eagle. What is helpful about these images? What are other images or metaphors that help you to envision what God desires to do in your life?
