Our Faithful Father
‘He tells us everything over and over- one line at a time, one line at a time, a little here and a little there.’ Isaiah 28:10 NLT
The word of the Lord comes to us daily to light our path and guide our feet. It sets us straight when we stray. Chastises us when we err. Finds us when we are lost and comforts us when cold.
We often find ourselves seeking out things we have been warned against by God, living under the protection our flesh has to offer. Living a life of lies and fake satisfaction, thinking to ourselves that we are doing the right things. Then we wonder, like the leaders of Israel (28:9-10), why does the Lord keep repeating his commands to us?
Meditate on today’s verses and know that God is telling us that:
He will gather those of us who have been scattered abroad by our sins and have repented (27:12),
He will tear down the walls of lies and deceit we have built around ourselves (28:17),
He will bring us a precious cornerstone, safe to build on (28:16),
He will be our pride and joy, the clown of our new city (28:5) and
we will return to worship Him (27:13).
Dear Lord, forgive my ever-wandering heart. Break down the walls I have built around myself and give me a precious and solid foundation in Christ Jesus. Thank you Father, Amen.
