“You who are far away, hear what I have done; and you who are near, acknowledge My might.” Sinners in Zion are terrified; trembling has seized the godless. “Who among us can live with the consuming fire? Who among us can live with continual burning?” (Isaiah 33:13-14).
When judgement comes, those who know the Lord do not fear what is coming. The call is for those who do not know the Lord to draw close to Him. Judgement does come and those who have been sinning against the Lord will be held accountable. Take care to pay attention to what is important and not to get carried away with things that are not. The Lord alone will accomplish what He purposes.
Lord, You have all things in your hands. You know the times and seasons. Help me to not be one who is far away from You, but one who is always drawing closer to Your purpose and presence. Remind me that no matter the season, or the situation, I can do all things through You who strengthens me. Guide me in the strength of Your Word that I would abide in You and You in me.
Almighty Lord of all, You have spoken Your purpose over and over again and in each generation, there are the few that hear and the many who do not. Help me to be one who hears Your plea and Your call to follow You through the sinful mess of this world knowing that You alone have the Words of eternal life. Guide me today and every day to walk with You alone who saves. Amen.
