Listen to Me, you who follow after righteousness, you who seek the Lord; Look to the rock from which you were hewn and to the hole of the pit from which you were dug. Isaiah 51:1 NKJV
There are many voices calling to us, but there is only one we should listen to. God’s still small voice is the only one to be trusted for only He has out best interests in mind.
There are many examples to follow, but there is only one we should model our life around. God Almighty’s Son Jesus Christ was perfectly obedient in all ways, even to the point of death to bring salvation to all who would believe in Him. His example should be our measuring stick to compare our life to.
There are many things to seek in this life, but only one satisfies. Jesus Christ fills the empty space within us that compels us to seek in the first place. Seek first His Kingdom and all these things will be added, says Jesus.
There are many things to look to but only one encourages and builds us up. God Almighty who created all things with a spoken word. He made you in His image. We must never forget that. When thinking about whose image we bear, we must also remember the pit from which He pulled us out. In doing so, we remain humble knowing how undeserving we are of His lavish grace, love and forgiveness.
Read Isaiah 51. It is a wonderful reminder of God’s strength, all He has done and all He will do. If ever your mind drifts away from the Lord, rein it back in by reading God’s Word. Remember His sovereignty, His might and your own sinfulness is a great place to start.
Lord, thank you for speaking to us through your word. Thank you for your clear directions for life. Thank you for dying for our sins and rising again to give us new life. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
