Yahweh, Day 131
Day 131, Yahweh: Restoring a Distorted Image
"Do you not know? Have you not heard? Yahweh is the everlasting God, the Creator of the whole earth."
Isaiah 40:27-30 (Holman Christian Standard Bible)
Here in chapter 40 of Isaiah ... God is attempting to correct humanities fallen and distorted image of Himself. We see part of this in verses 10 and 11:
"See, the Lord God comes with strength, and His power establishes His rule. His reward is with Him, and His gifts accompany Him. 11 He protects His flock like a shepherd; He gathers the lambs in His arms and carries [them] in the fold of His [garment]. He gently leads those that are nursing." (HCSB)
God's strength and rule are presented as primarily purposed to give rewards, gather and protect His people, and to give righteous leadership to His flock.
It is very difficult to restore and correct man's fallen image and concepts about Yahweh .... but Yahweh persists.
It is in The Name.Intercessory Prayer: Oh Father! For the sake of Your Name and reputation … bring us back to Your Heart and Purpose for all of creation … and our purpose in creation. In Jesus Name. Amen.
