09.29.2019 – Old Testament: Isa 17.7–8
To read the Bible in a year, read Isaiah 16–18 on September 29, In the year of our Lord 2019
By Don Ruhl
The Lord announced a time when He would overthrow Damascus, Israel, and the nations, but He also announced through Isaiah that something else wonderful would happen:
In that day a man will look to his Maker,
And his eyes will have respect for the Holy One of Israel.
He will not look to the altars,
The work of his hands;
He will not respect what his fingers have made,
Nor the wooden images nor the incense altars.
– Isaiah 17.7–8
Too bad that people finally turn to their Maker when they see or experience suffering, but sometimes that is just what it takes.
- What did it take to turn you to the Lord?
- Do you have respect for the Holy One of Israel?
