.....................................................................................


Father, thank You for Your Word. You love us so much, that You left us written instructions on how to live our lives for You, and thus have fruitfulness, prosperity, and joy filled days.


...... 


Let us examine this message from the prophet Isaiah:


Isaiah 51:2 (The Message) Committed to Seeking God

"Listen to me, all you who are serious about right living 
and committed to seeking God.

Ponder the rock from which you were cut,

   the quarry from which you were dug.


Yes, ponder Abraham, your father,

   and Sarah, who bore you.

Think of it! One solitary man when I called him,

   but once I blessed him, he multiplied.

 

Likewise I, God, will comfort Zion,

   comfort all her mounds of ruins.

I'll transform her dead ground into Eden,

   her moonscape into the garden of God,

A place filled with exuberance and laughter,

   thankful voices and melodic songs.

 

Now if we are serious about right living and being committed to seeking God, see what this verse says: 

Ponder the rock from which you were cut,

   the quarry from which you were dug.

We were cut from the rock of Abraham and Sarah. They believed God would do what He said despite their old age.  Lord, You formed Your covenant with them and we, 1000s of years later, would be inheritors of that covenant relationship with You. It is a spiritual rock with an eternal history, and my friends, we are a part of it.

 

................................................             


Then, Jesus came and cut a new covenant, a higher better covenant with You, our almighty God! So now we are in a deeper covenant relationship with You, able to call upon You as our covenant partner in all we do. When the enemy attempts to do us harm, You are there to protect us. When You call us to do something, we are required by covenant to do it. I always looked at what You could do for me, not about what You want me to do for You; but now I understand I am Yours to command.

 


Now the rest of this verse: 
 Think of it! One solitary man when I called him,

   but once I blessed him, he multiplied.
Your blessings caused a miracle to happen. When Abraham was old and Sarah past the childbearing age, You gave them a son, and created a nation of Your people to grow strong. Yet they were also weak in being obedient, a stubborn people. Convict me Holy Spirit when my stubborn nature causes me to fall into disobedience, help me to repent and choose to love You and follow Your plan for my life; You are my KING of Kings, Supreme Ruler!

 

Likewise I, God, will comfort Zion,

   comfort all her mounds of ruins.

You bring comfort when we repent and return to You. You bless us extraordinarily because You love us so much and as the father of the ‘Prodigal son’ rejoiced at his son’s repentance and return home, You rejoice when we repent and return to You!


I'll transform her dead ground into Eden,

   her moonscape into the garden of God,

A place filled with exuberance and laughter,

   thankful voices and melodic songs.



It’s a time for celebration! You turn our dead lives into a garden that You nurture, so it can produce fruit; our barren desert moonscape into beauty filled with exuberance and laughter, thankfulness and song! You love us so much! You not only forgive our sins when we repent, You forget them. Show us Holy One, how to be the person You have called us to be.


 

My friends, let’s make new choices for this new year! Choose to commit our lives to Our Creator God Who treasures each of us. This year we'ill  be new crreatures living a truly New Life!
