Today’s Reading: Isaiah 41:11-29; 42:1-25; 43:1-7
I am so embarrassed this morning.
After spending an hour this morning for prayer, I started my morning work, which was full of obstacles. More than anything, I was challenged with being accused falsely and with needing provisions. After another hour and half of working, I stopped and decided to send out this email. So I opened today’s reading without much thought. God, of course, answered to me in my troubled heart:
“All who rage against you will surely be ashamed and disgraced; those who oppose you will be as nothing and perish.”
Although I am challenged with prophecies and prophets, that seems to me pretty clear this morning….. Then, I read on…
“Those who wage war against you will be as nothing at all. For I am the Lord your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you. Do not be afraid,… for I myself will help you…. You will rejoice in the Lord and glory in the Holy One of Israel.”
Yeah, I am embarrassed and banging my head on my desk for my unfaithfulness to his ever-so faithfulness to me….
“The poor and needy search for water, but there is none; their tongues are parched with thirst. But I the Lord will answer them; I, the God of Israel, will not forsake them…. I will turn the desert into pools of water, and the parched ground into springs”
My God will turn the “desert into pools of water” for me; My God will turn “the parched ground into springs” for me.
My God is the solid Rock in my life, whom I continuously serve with my lack of steady faith in Him; am I grateful that He made his covenant to me and He is ever faithful to me?
