Meditation — November 9, 2017

Posted on Thursday, November 9th, 2017

Scripture: “Come let us reason together,” says the Lord. “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are as red as crimson, they shall be like wool. If you are willing and obedient, you will eat the best from the land; but if you resist and rebel, you will be devoured by the sword.” For the mouth of the Lord has spoken. Isaiah 1:18-20

Prayer: On this dreary, chilly day, I am looking over the canal. I see the lights of the home opposite me, the rest are clothed in darkness.  This is a perfect setting to come before the Lord—perhaps, not to reason, but rather to listen.

Response: What a blessed setting—to listen, even reason together with the Lord. There are no distractions for you as well as you might be envious of those who have the constant presence of family around the table. So what are you hearing in the silence that you might not have heard so many years ago in the turmoil of your life then?

Perhaps, a more appropriate question is what are you to do or be in the silence of your home? Surely, you agree that never in your youth or later were you so inclined to listen to that holy whisper that surrounds you and invades the inner sanctum of your heart and prayer.

Focus this afternoon on the anointed words if Isaiah—your sins shall be made as white as snow and as warm and soft as wool in the healing grace of the Lord. Spend some time praising the Lord for His boundless love in your life and in the lives of loved ones.

All for today.

 

Note: I will be traveling tomorrow and will resume the meditations on Sunday.
