chronological day 175 :)

We’re going to stay in Isaiah today.  That’s a little easier!  Please read Isaiah 8, 9, 10, and 11. 


“The Holy can either be a hiding place or a boulder blocking your way” (Isaiah 8:14 MSG)

Wow! Makes me want to search my heart and motives – am I offended by the Word or made secure by it? Am I a “pharisee” or a disciple? Is the Lord my hiding place, or do I have a negative view of Him?  Some people do think that God is just out to spoil our “fun”.  What a sad perspective that is!  God loves us and wants us to move forward continually!

Isaiah 9 is a comfort – I love it.  Remember the stumps in Isaiah 6?  Moving ahead to Isaiah 11, we see the holy seed again, but in a new form:  

A green Shoot will sprout from Jesse’s stump, from his roots a budding Branch” (Isaiah 11:1 MSG)

The holy seed is a green shoot! The Lord is always looking for a remnant.  He is always wanting to grow us if we cooperate with Him.
