Isaiah 55

Today we are reading Isaiah 55. In this chapter we read about God’s wonderful promise of forgiveness! “”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; let him return to the Lord, that he may have compassion on him, and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. “For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven and do not return there but water the earth, making it bring forth and sprout, giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater, so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it.” ‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭55:6-11‬ ‭ESV‬‬ God’s word of forgiveness is higher than our ways of revenge. God’s promise to pardon is greater than our thoughts of “justice” where we want to see the guilty punished. Another promise God makes is that His word does not fail to accomplish His purpose. How is this encouraging for you? When have you prayed for this to be the case? How is God’s word working in you? May God inspire you today through His Holy Word! Pastor Tim
