Reading: Isaiah 28-30; Psalm 115
Father, your wrath and judgement are intense. You will bring destruction down on those who disobey and reject you. But even though your judgment is strong, your mercy is swift. You are waiting on us to turn to you so you can show us mercy and grace. Help me turn towards you and obey obey your Word so that your commands bring me life. All wisdom and knowledge come from you, Lord. Remind me to seek you for counsel and not to make plans without consulting you. You are a God of justice, and all those who wait on you are blessed. Father, strengthen me to wait on you. I want to do all I can to bring glory to you, Father, because you are the only one who deserves it. Keep me from making an idol lest I become like it – blind, deaf, and unable to live. You remember me, God, and you will bless me as I learn to fear you.
