Isaiah: Setting Things Right

The Morning after the Storm

            Ominous clouds slowly cover the earth. Everything becomes darker, bleaker. An eerie gray is the forewarning of an impending storm. At first the wind gently ruffles the tree branches, but then it steadily grows in force and speed until the trees bend almost to the breaking point. The rain that began with ...

Jesus—the Heart’s Delight   (Isaiah 4:2)

            Jesus is beautiful, glorious, excellent, and appealing to those who take hold of Him by faith. Great good awaits those who turn to Him. Jesus sustains us through the storms of life and furnishes us with hope until they are over. He calms our anxieties with His peace. He drives away fear with His comforting presence.

“Destination?”

God’s word is full of useful information that is up-to-date and relevant to our lives today. That information helps us to know what our options are in life. It shows us how to navigate our lives along the paths that take us to such pleasing “destinations” as a satisfied heart, meaningful relationships, and ...

On the Other Side of Confusion, Distress, and Regret

            How does it feel to be swept up in the consequences of sin? Sometimes it’s our sin; sometimes we’re caught in the fallout of someone else’s sin. A careless word, a wrong decision, an unguarded moment, or a detrimental pattern of life ushers in a season of heaviness, sorrow, or struggle. What does it feel like to reap the consequences of harm, wrong, injury, or foolishness? Most of us know.

            The consequences of sin trouble us in various forms. A fog of confusion creeps over us that is cold and unsettling. We don’t want this situation, but we can’t see how to fix it. We think ...

"What Does God Do in Our Lives?"

            He rescues us. When we place our faith in God, He works to rescue our souls from famine, dryness, coldness, isolation, oppression, and wandering. He rescues our souls from famine by nourishing them with the truth. He rescues our souls from dryness by bringing joy and laughter back into life ...

Isaiah: Setting Things Right

Isaiah 2:2-4 gives us some good news concerning the future.

A World Set Right

            In the latter days, priorities and values will change from what they are now. People will understand the value of knowing God and His word, and they will come to Him to learn. They will come, not just to get information or to hear a new idea or philosophy, but to embrace His word and His ways, to be conformed to them, and to practice ...

The Health of the Soul

The essentials for a healthy soul are the same as for a healthy body--diet, exercise, and rest. The diet of the soul is what it "eats," what it feeds on, what it takes into the mind and heart. 

 

Not Caveman Days

Isaiah: Setting Things Right has recently become available as an e-book. To celebrate that mile marker, I'm going to post some excerpts. The first is about God's "paintbrush" and "canvas."

Isaiah 1:1 The vision of Isaiah the son of Amoz, which he saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem … (NKJV)

"A skillful painter knows how to transfer the vision in his mind to the blank canvas. The instrument that God used to put His “vision” on paper, or parchment, was not a brush, but a man named Isaiah ...
