Rest, Revive, Refresh, Restore | January 9 2021 | Pastor Anita
God is speaking prophetically to His church. What is God saying now? Prepare the way for the coming of the Lord Isaiah 57:14-21 NIV
Comfort for the Contrite 14 It will be said, “Build up, build up, make the way ready. Take everything out of the way of My people.” 15 For the high and honored One Who lives forever, Whose name is Holy, says, “I live in the high and holy place. And I also live with those who are sorry for their sins and have turned from them and are not proud. I give new strength to the spirit of those without pride, and also to those whose hearts are sorry for their sins. 16 I will keep on fighting against you, and will not always be angry, for then your spirit would become weak before Me, the ones to whom I gave life. 17 Because of the sin of his desire to get more of everything, I was angry. I punished him and hid My face in anger. He went on sinning, following the way of his own heart. 18 I have seen his ways and will heal him. I will lead him and give comfort to him and to those who have sorrow for him. 19 I will make the lips to praise. Peace, peace to him who is far and to him who is near,” says the Lord, “and I will heal him.” 20 But the sinful are like the troubled sea, for it cannot rest. Its waters throw up mud and dirt. 21 “There is no peace,” says my God, “for the sinful.”
Rest, Refresh, Revive, Restore will enable you to hear His Voice.
Isaiah 58 Raise your voice “Shout it aloud, do not hold back. Raise your voice like a trumpet. Declare to my people their rebellion and to the descendants of Jacob their sins. 2 For day after day they seek me out; they seem eager to know my ways, as if they were a nation that does what is right and has not forsaken the commands of its God. They ask me for just decisions and seem eager for God to come near them. 3 ‘Why have we fasted,’ they say, ‘and you have not seen it? Why have we humbled ourselves, and you have not noticed?’
