IF GOD WROTE YOU A LETTER
Isaiah walked around like a prisoner of war being led into captivity. It seems like a ridiculous request on my part, but I was more concerned about the souls of nations who were separated from me, and Isaiah’s act was one last chance for me to get their attention. The souls of men and women are more valuable than you know. So I will do anything to get someone’s attention so that they step off the road of destruction and onto my path of life.
I loved Isaiah’s obedience. I can do more with one faithful servant than an army of indifferent believers. Be faithful to me. Look for and listen for my instructions. I have plans for you that can change the lives of those near you and around the world, but you need to be ready to follow me. It’s not likely I’ll ask you to do what I asked of Isaiah, but I will ask you to step out in faith. Follow me and get ready for an adventure.
Be willing to obey God this week in all situations, including those that push you out of your comfort zone.
