Verse Of The Day: V1 “Thus saith the LORD, The heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool: where is the house that ye build unto me? And where is the place of my rest?”
In the days of Prophet Isaiah, many people have put themselves above God. They worshipped God with their lips but not their hearts. They loved themselves and their houses more than they loved God and His house. Today, the people are also worshipping God with their lips but not their hearts. They worship themselves, their family, their career and their possessions more than they worship the true and living God.
Isaiah 29:13 “Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men:”
1. God is King In Your Life
V2 “For all those things hath mine hand made, and all those things have been, saith the LORD: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word.”
The judgment of God is coming soon and one day, everyone of us, whether young or old, rich or poor, shall meet Him. The good news is that those who are poor and contrite in spirit, or those who do God’s commandments, and have chosen God as the King in their lives, shall meet Him as His faithful, and shall enter into the gates of the city of God.
Revelation 17:14 “These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for He is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with Him are called, and chosen, and faithful.”
Revelation 22:14 “Blessed are they that do His commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.”
2. God Is Nothing In Your Life
V4 “I also will choose their delusions, and will bring their fears upon them; because when I called, none did answer; when I spake, they did not hear: but they did evil before mine eyes, and chose that in which I delighted not.”
The bad news is that those who refuse to believe in the true and living God and continually do evil before Him, their names shall not be found in the book of life and shall be cast into the lake of fire and burnt forever and ever.
Revelation 20:15 “And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.”
Prayer Of The Week
Dearest God, I believe in You, and You are right in the center of my heart and life.
