Isaiah experienced the LORDS glory and underwent a purifying that was painful. Have you felt HIM move in you as you experienced a painful cleansing in order to be pure and holy to do HIS work. I have. Not so long ago when I was sure if I died tommorrow it would be OK because I was at a place where I felt happy and content. My life was perfect......or so I thought. GOD had another message for me and boy did he heap coals upon me and it hurt deeply. This chastizement was necessary in order to move me forward to do HIS work....study and blog with you:)
The more we know GOD the more we become aware of our own powerlessness and inadequacies and begin to understand how impossible it is to do anything of lasting value with out HIM.
Unfortnately Ahaz missed that idea. He did not seek the LORD nor did he heed his whisper to accept the LORDS help. He had no faith to fall back on when he heard that Syria and Isreal formed an alliance and were preparing to attack. Are you prepared for the attack of the enemy?
Has GOD revealedany idols in your life? Are you listening as HE invites you to prepare for the attacks? Have you grabbed on for dear life?
