Bible Verse to Lift You Up 1/9/19
GOD’S GRACE * Isaiah 30:9 New International Version (NIV) 9”For these are rebellious people, deceitful children, children unwilling to listen to the Lord’s instruction.” * Isaiah 30:18 New International Version (NIV) “Yet the Lord longs to be gracious to you; therefore he will rise up to show you compassion. For the Lord is a God of justice. Blessed are all who wait for him!” * Quote:
“We, who repeatedly ignore the instruction of the Lord and by our
actions say, ‘Stop confronting us with the Holy One of Israel’ (Isa.
30:11 NIV), are undeserving. Yet, God earnestly ‘waits’ to be gracious
and to show us mercy and loving-kindness. How blessed are all those who
long for Him, for they will experience His grace.”—A Bible Study on
Becoming A Woman of Grace, by Cynthia Heald * me: All through
the Bible, Old and New Testament, we are reminded that God wants our
faith, our obedience, our all. We are also reminded He is gracious and
compassionate toward us. So let’s pray often for His help in obeying
Him, in putting Him first in our lives.
When we choose faith in Jesus as our Lord and Savior, and when we
choose to obey His Words, Holy Spirit will enable us to serve Him. But
we are human and sometimes fail, we must ask our Lord to forgive us.
All of us who interact and care for difficult people can relate. This
is when it is good to remember, God extends His grace and compassion
toward us. God loves us so let’s choose to obey Him each and every day.
His faithfulness toward us never fails. * TAKE AWAY THOUGHT: “God is more tender than we can conceive…”—Oswald Chambers
