Passage: Isaiah 57:14-21
Verse: Isaiah 57:18 (NIV 2011)
I have seen their ways, but I will heal them; I will guide them and restore comfort to Israel’s mourners.
In reading this passage, we are reminded that the obstacles that are in the way of us trusting and building a strong relationship with God will be removed. It is a comfort to know that the Lord, our God, will not always accuse us, nor will He be angry with us forever [v. 16]. Even though He has seen our ways, He has chosen to restore us. He will heal us. Praise Him for all He does for us every day. May His peace be felt, by each of us, as He passes near today.
