The Lord Be With You Today!

Isaiah 50:2a
When I came, why was there no one?
When I called, why was there no one to answer?
(Though the Lord spoke His message of discipline
and loving forgiveness to His people,
though He sent His Word to His people,
though He sent His prophets to His people,
no one listened, no one repented and returned to the Lord.
The Lord is always calling us back to Himself,
always sending messages that reveal Himself to us.
Yet, we so often fail to heed what we read in His Word
and what we hear from His still, small Voice.
We consistently resist believing and resting in His complete and full salvation,
trying rather to depend on our own resources and go our own way.
Still today, just as our Israelite forefathers, we blithely move along life's journey
and fail to answer His call to give ourselves completely to Him.
The Lord is challenging us here to listen for Him, to watch for Him,

to be attuned to His continued and loving revelations to us,
to be assured that He yearns for us to be receptive when He appears,
and to answer Him when He calls.)

In Christ's love,
