“Yet the Lord longs to be gracious to you; therefore he will rise up to show you compassion. For the Lord is a God of justice. Blessed are all who wait for him! People of Zion, who live in Jerusalem, you will weep no more. How gracious he will be when you cry for help! As soon as he hears, he will answer you. Although the Lord gives you the bread of adversity and the water of affliction, your teachers will be hidden no more; with your own eyes you will see them. Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.” Isaiah 30: 18-21
We cannot escape the fact, that God is sovereign over all- all situations and all people. God sends trouble and sickness, that do His work in turning our thoughts to Him and asking questions. He waits for us to turn and find Him. He looks for us to wait for Him to speak and teach us His ways. If only we would turn, we would find such blessing and comfort for our longing souls.
Although we try to fill the void with stuff, we cannot and it never satisfies. Perhaps we are beginning to see this, as we cannot get access to the things we like.
God has sent affliction to us. He reminds us we are but dust, and easily troubled. We squirm under the pain of fear and anxiety, and He shows us the way out.
“This is the way, walk in it..”
When we eventually get to the end of our resources and our comforts in this physical life, maybe we will think again about our inner being, our soul. God can make us alive to Him and give conquer that is not found anywhere else. If this present situation should persist and show us what eternal life is, we shall have showed of blessing in every family and street.
To have eyes to see the way of God, ears to hear His Word, and a heart that does not veer to the bypath meadows, brings such joy. In this calamity, may we hear God’s voice saying to us. “ I am showing you the path, and giving you the strength to walk in it..” Trust in the unfailing love of Christ Jesus, and the manifestation of that love to you. This amazing time will be something you did not expect and nothing will be the same again.. we will weep no more.
