Isaiah 57 - Day 543
Isaiah 57 - Day 543 (link to today's reading)
Scripture: Isaiah 57:21
Commentary (bethmelekh.com): It is impossible for those who are determined to resist God to receive His peace, wholeness and well-being. Why? The answer is quite simple, love is a choice to commit wholeheartedly to another, though the other might love unconditionally, none the less, if that love is refused it cannot be received. The Love, mercy, grace, and peace of God are offered to all but only those who accept His free gift will receive it. An unwrapped gift cannot be enjoyed, a bride cannot be married until she says “I do”, a woman cannot conceive unless she receives her husband, love cannot exist without freewill, and relational love cannot be experienced unless it is responded to. Therefore, “‘There is no (everlasting) peace, wholeness and well-being,’ says My God, ‘for the wicked’”
Application: In love, God gave us the freedom to either choose Him or reject Him. Personally, for whatever reasons, I think most people avoid making a decision and have inadvertently decided to reject God.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, please reveal yourself...
