chronological day 207 :)

Staying in Isaiah today!  We are reading Isaiah 52:13-15, 53, 54, 55, 56, and 57.  The Lord is always generous, always kind.  Search for His kindness in the Word and in your life – find reasons to be grateful!  

207

“This is what God’s servants can expect. I’ll see to it that everything works out for the best” (Isaiah 54:17 MSG)

That can be my best expectation: that God will work everything out. That makes my problems turn into possibilities.

I like the reminders in 56:1-3 (and beyond) about the importance of the Sabbath – it’s funny that I have to be reminded to rest, but I do get busy with “things” and checking off lists that I forget to rest in His presence.

“When I looked again and saw what he was doing,
    I decided to heal him, lead him, and comfort him,
    creating a new language of praise for the mourners.
‘Peace to the far-off, peace to the near-at-hand,’ says God
    ‘and yes, I will heal them’ ” (Isaiah 57:18-19 MSG)

Once again in 57, we see how patient and kind the “Old Testament God” is – He looks at us  in our rebellion and still comforts us and loves us.
