“Because of the iniquity of his unjust gain I was angry and struck him; I hid My face and was angry, and he went on turning away, in the way of his heart. I have seen his ways, but I will heal him; I will lead him and restore comfort to him and to his mourners” (Isaiah 57:17-18)
Though you and I have struck out against the Lord, yet He will offer forgiveness and teach us His humble and gentle ways. Turn to the Lord, change direction and He will lead in the way of righteousness. Know that in the Lord, You will find the righteous way of life. Those who walk in the way of the Lord will not be disappointed. They will see life and know true purpose.
Lord, this world is filled with strife and hatred. It is easy to get caught up in the way of this world and walk according to its precepts. Take me through the cross and lead me away from the anger and injustice in my heart to the place where I live according to Your eternal Word. Help me to overcome the obstacles that come along that I may be in Your Word, in Your way and know the truth and life that You offer.
Lord Jesus, You are the Way, Truth and Life and all who come through You will be led away from the strife of this world and into the never-failing promises You have given. May I learn yet more today of Your faithfulness and walk as You walked to the Father’s glory. Moment by moment lead me throughout this day that I would look to You, the author and finisher of the faith You have given me. Amen.
