The scripture for today is Isaiah 48:12-21, NIV
Verses 12 and 17b: " Listen to me, O Jacob, Israel, whom I have called: I am He; I am the first and the last." 'I am the Lord your God, who teaches you what is best for you, who directs you in the way you should go.
These are the best two verses in the passage. God is telling us who He is and then He tells us what He has done for us. IF ONLY WE LISTENED.....
The world would be a much better place if we hadn't decided that WE knew best and took off in a tangent that has ruined the world for us and future generations. We have not been very good keepers of the earth. Even our food is contaminated with poisons, that we created. I wish God had created a dictatorship; we would be better off. But He loved us and let us go our own way.
Thankfully, He had mercy on us and sent His Son, Jesus. Take the few days left in this month and tell Him how grateful you are.
Dear Lord, thank you for bringing Your Word to us today. Help me to be grateful.
