What the Lord will do with stumbling blocks

Isaiah Bible Background

10.15.2016 – Old Testament: Isa 57.14

To read the Bible in a year, read Isaiah 56–58 on October 15, In the year of our Lord 2016

By Don Ruhl

The Lord sent prophets to His people because they stumbled in their walk, not because they did not see the block over which they stumbled, but they placed it there themselves. However, once they would repent, the Lord had Isaiah write,

And one shall say,
“Heap it up! Heap it up!
Prepare the way,
Take the stumbling block out of the way of My people.”
(Isaiah 57.14) 

Sometimes after we have repented, the stumbling-block, which we placed before ourselves, remains. Seeing our effort to change, the Lord orders the removal of the stumbling-block, and we should praise Him for doing it.


  • What stumbling-blocks have you placed before yourself?
  • Are you ready to repent of that sin?
