Are you ever tired from the burdens you carry? Sorrows, fears, doubts, sins. Would you like to cast these weights off and receive rest…a spiritual time out. God has promised us rest from our labors and relief from all that weighs us down. We just need to choose Him.
What I pulled out of these two chapters was to beware of pride, which set us against God, and to be meek, which sets us next to God. What does meekness look like, and how can we obtain more of it in our character?
How can we come to know the Lord better than we do today? He is the light, truth, and life of the world. Do we trust Him implicitly? If we still doubt or fear, what can we do to bolster our trust in Him?
One theme that stands out to me in these Isaiah chapters is Second Chances. God doesn’t hold grudges. He is always reaching His hand out to save us…if we turn to Him in repentance. There is lots to delight in with these chapters. See what you can find.
These Isaiah chapters delve into the mountain of the Lord (temples), radiating goodness, and how to become more holy, like our Savior. See if you can find gems of wisdom to delight in, like Nephi did.
Nephi prefaces a large section of Isaiah chapters he will quote with this chapter about delighting in the word of God. How do we delight in the scriptures? What does that look like? Do we rejoice in God’s truths He has restored to the earth?
600 years before Christ was born, an angel told Jacob His name so he could give it to his people…to empower them. Do we realize the gift we have been given in being able to take upon us the name of Christ–a name that holds infinite power to save us and redeem us? What can we do to show our gratitude for this great gift and His grace?
