Today’s passage: Isaiah 8:11-22
- God is bigger and more powerful than anything in this world. He is the LORD of hosts!
- God never changes. People will either stumble over God, or they will find refuge and sanctuary in Him.
- People can turn to everything but God in their times of need (Or want), but then be angry with God when life isn’t going “well”.
Questions to consider:
- In what ways was God’s summary of the people of Judah still true of people today?
- Who is God? How does a low view of Him result in all kinds of trouble? How does a high view of Him result in “sanctuary”?
- What must we do in order to not begin seeing things the way the world sees things? (“Do not call conspiracy all that this people calls conspiracy”) How can we continually be transformed by the renewal of our minds?
