Isaiah not only reveals the Lord’s judgments about the rebelliousness of Israel, but he vividly expresses God’s feelings as well. Sense the Lord’s heart and catch the longing that God’s people rest and wait upon God alone. Memorize verse 15, repeating it often until your spirit does what the verse invites.
My Dad often used to remind us: “Man proposes, but God disposes.’ As you enter into the activities of the day, do this with an inner sense that you are responding to what God is doing in you, rather than what you are doing. Then your activities will blossom into prayer as you rely upon the Lord alone—not upon the shadowy “Egypts” that come your way with but a bare pretense of power.
