These daily online studies are adapted from our Quiet Time Bible Guide. The studies go through the Old and New Testaments in just over two years. The approach taken by our quiet time Bible studies does not include answers. The goal of the study is to help you dig into Scripture for yourself. You can go deeper using a commentary, Bible background guide or Bible handbook.
For more context before you begin studying, read this introduction to the book of Isaiah.
Have you ever been discouraged when you look at the people of God as they are today? Do you compare your church members to what they have been at various times in the past? Do you feel inadequate to the golden vision of what the church will be when Christ presents to God "a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless" (Eph 5:27)? It is a shattering experience for Isaiah too—to turn from the vision of radiant Zion in chapters 60—62 to Zion as she is.
When have you experienced spiritual revival in your life? Allow the joy of that time to well up within you.
Pray that God will bring revival to you and to your nation.
