Are we listening to God? Is God calling us to a situation or task that seems hard and uncomfortable?
I have to listen to the Lord. I want to follow righteousness and seek the Lord. The verse says to look at the rock from which we were hewn, or cut from. It says to look at the hole, from which you were dug. God created us. God chose Abraham to bless and increase.
The Lord Comforts Zion
“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.
Look to Abraham your father,
And to Sarah who bore you;
For I called him alone,
And blessed him and increased him.”
—Isaiah 51:1-2 (NKJV)
God decides who to call for his good works. God loves to call the most unexpected person to do his good works. God wants those who know God’s law in their hearts to listen to him. Do not fear others the world. Don’t be afraid of their insults. It says the moth will eat them up like a garment, so they will decay and disintegrate. God is forever. God’s righteousness lasts forever, from generation to generation.
“Listen to Me, you who know righteousness,
You people in whose heart is My law:
Do not fear the reproach of men,
Nor be afraid of their insults.
For the moth will eat them up like a garment,
And the worm will eat them like wool;
But My righteousness will be forever,
And My salvation from generation to generation.”
—Isaiah 51:7-8 (NKJV)
If God is calling you to do something, listen. Our creator will help us accomplish his good works. God’s salvation is eternal.
