The New Bible Study, “December Love” Can Be Found In The Right Side Bar ——>
Isaiah 55 is one of my most favorite chapters in the Bible. As a matter of fact, my husband and I named our third child after his favorite book, Matthew, and my favorite book, Isaiah. There are so many wonderful verses in this chapter and many of them I have memorized – maybe even the whole chapter. They come to mind all the time, in almost every situation.
Tonight I was thinking of a friend who is not a Christian. It’s her decision. She has listened patiently to what Jesus has done for her. But she has gently told me that she simply does not believe like I do. She said she does not know where she will go when she dies, and she chooses to not believe the Words of God in this matter.
I am not an evangelist, as some would say, but I am a praying person! Since her birthday is this month, she has been on my mind a lot and Isaiah 55:6-9 seemed like a perfect birthday prayer to pray for her.
“Seek the LORD while He may be found;
Call upon Him while He is near.
Let the wicked forsake his way and the unrighteous man his thoughts;
“For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways,” declares the LORD.
For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts.”
Do you have friends and family that you need to continue praying for? I hope this passage in the Word of God will encourage you to keep on and not cease praying. I have so many people in my life that I thought would NEVER come to know Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, that now call Him Lord.
In my life there were many who thought I WOULD NEVER know Him. After 30 years of walking in my own dark place, there were many who thought it could never happen. But here I am praising my Lord Jesus and sharing His precious Words with you. Thank you so much for stopping by, I would love to hear from you!
