Finding Hope, Not Hope - So, For Your Soul
Finding Hope, Not Hope - So, For Your Soul 

                     OBEDIENCE       

 Listen to Me in silence ...Isaiah 41:1

Hear, you who are deaf ... Isaiah 42:18

                            Hear this ... Isaiah 48:1

                     Awake, awake ... Isaiah 52:1      

 

 

It is almost impossible to correct a child who will not listen.

God calls us to listen and obey Him

for the same reason

we want our children to listen and obey us.

 

 

 

 

"Incline your ear and come to Me.

Listen, that you may live"

(Isaiah 55:3)

 

 

 

God wants you and me to glorify and enjoy Him,

not in a few things,

but in everything.

He is with us moment by moment,

loving,

guiding,

encouraging,

reproving

and yes, chastening us,

all for our good and His glory.  

 

He is a gentle and good Father to His people, yet He brings loving correction as needed,

and many will,

no doubt, experience this loving correction today!

 

God is watching and listening

to our prayers and cries.

As He is the God of all comfort,

He is the all-caring God.

 

 

God helps His children in ways

we often don't expect.

And sometimes we don't

realize what He has done for us

until some time later. 

 

 God remains against those who are wicked and who in these times are acting out of evil - even if their evil is unrecognized

or if this evil is called good by certain people.

 

God is in absolute control over it all.

 

God leaves nothing undone that will correct and arouse you and me to listen

and obey Him.

 

 

Hear God's call.

Read His Word daily.

Commit passages to memory.

Be obedient to His message - found in Holy Scripture.

"Seek the Lord while He may be found;

Call upon Him while He is near.

Let the wicked forsake his way

and the unrighteous man his thoughts;

And let him return to the Lord,

and He will have compassion on him,

and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon

(Isaiah 55:6,7).   

 

  

 Awake, awake, put on your strength, O Zion; put on your beautiful garments . . .

Isaiah 52:1

 

Have a glorious day in the Lord.

I would love to hear from you.
