Hear, Give Attention…

For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have hope. Romans

Comments, thoughts and reflections welcome.

Isaiah 34:1-4

Draw near, O nations, to hear, and give attention, O peoples! Let the earth hear, and all that fills it; the world, and all that comes from it.

For the LORD is enraged against all the nations, and furious against all their host; he has devoted them to destruction, has given them over for slaughter.

Their slain shall be cast out, and the stench of their corpses shall rise; the mountains shall flow with their blood.

All the host of heaven shall rot away, and the skies roll up like a scroll. All their host shall fall, as leaves fall from the vine, like leaves falling from the fig tree.

He commands us to listen.  Whether we see Him as a fierce, judging God, or a merciful, loving and forgiving God makes no difference when God decides to move and do.  He is all this and more, more than we are capable of knowing and understanding.  It is foolish of us to try to paint God as we see Him and be arrogant enough to say that is it!  He is so much more.  Better for us to simply do as He says in His word, let His Holy Spirit guide us; simply trusting by faith that He is all this and more.  There will come a day we will see Him as He is; we will join with Him in unity and love.  Look for that day!!

  1. I love the thought process there of “it makes not difference on how we view God.” In all honesty Gracie, to me this is the whole point. We can make Him into “our own image” all we want, but at the end of the day, He is God! Excellent! Thank you so much. God Bless, SR
