R-E-L-A-T-I-O-N-S-H-I-P – Isaiah 12

relationship.jpgRight in the middle of this prophecy of judgement upon the Jewish nation, Isaiah provides this encouraging chapter to God’s chosen people:

1 In that day you will sing: “Praise the LORD! He was angry with me, but now he comforts me. 2 See, God has come to save me. I will trust in him and not be afraid. The LORD GOD is my strength and my song; he has become my salvation.” 3 With joy you will drink deeply from the fountain of salvation!

4 In that wonderful day you will sing: “Thank the LORD! Praise his name! Tell the world what he has done. Oh, how mighty he is! 5 Sing to the LORD, for he has done wonderful things. Make known his praise around the world. 6 Let all the people of Jerusalem shout his praise with joy! For great is the Holy One of Israel who lives among you.”

Isn’t it good to know that no matter where we might think we are, God’s heart is for us to be restored? All He wants is RELATIONSHIP with us. Although He is holy and cannot tollerate sin, He has made a way for us to return to relationship with Him.

If you find yourself far from God today, just pray to Him. That goes against everything in us, but when we don’t feel like praying – either because we feel unworthy or because satan is feeding us lies about ourselves – that’s the time we need to pray the most. I have found that when I feel that way, as soon as I utter, “Dear Lord” that the enemy is defeated and God comes rushing back.

Pray! He wants to hear from you.

peace,
e
