Keep Crying

Isaiah 40:3-5

The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God.

Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain:

And the glory of the LORD shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.

John The Baptist is one of my favorite prophets, this prophecy by Isaiah was probably about 686 years before the birth of John The Baptist. John had a mission, to tell people that the first advent of Christ was approaching.

The symbolism attached to this prophecy is amazing. The wilderness is a dry place, referring to a people that have not been taught the trueness of God’s word.

A highway represents a straight path from your heart to God, through the desert, the dry places in your life. There are times in a Christian’s life, where we can ascend to the mountain tops in praise, and then there are times where it feels like you are in a desert place, a dryness from God. I’ve been there, and you constantly wonder what you have done wrong, the answer is probably nothing.

Next is the valley, and you look at Christians that have ascended to the mountain top in their ministry, and you wonder, ‘why can’t I ever make it to the mountain top?’

It’s through humbleness that we reach the mountain top, that’s why you were in the dry place, a place God can position you to attain the humility required to reach the mountain top for the Lord.

Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain:

Here’s a twist unsaved people that have exalted themselves will be made low, the crooked person will be made whole, their rough edges will be smoothed over for the Lord. I have known some of the Toughest people that have gotten saved and then, that hard inner shell is softened just like a soft-shell blue crab from Louisiana.

How does this happen? We all have a little of John the Baptist in us, sharing the gospel with others, and praying for our loved ones, your prayers prepare a way in the wilderness for God to reach those loved ones.

Like I have said for years, “Your prayers matter.”
