Isaiah is instructing the king and his people – stop the evil you are doing. Learn to do good. Change your ways. Repent. Change your heart and turn to God. Trust in God. Repent. Repent. Repent.
Isaiah’s words are just as important today as they were 2,500 years ago. We have the same issues today. Over and over, we think we are in control, and we know what is best. Really?
Are you at peace with what is happening in your world? In your country? In your family? No? Reflect for a moment. What have you done to make a change? And the changes you tried to make, were they really in your control?
Sometimes people realize that they do not have control. Then in frustration they say, “I guess the only thing I can do is pray.” I want to say – the ONLY thing? It is the ONLY thing! There is no stronger force than you turning to God in prayer. Start today.
May the Lord bless you in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen
