Let us Tremble
Isaiah 66:1-14 Thus says the LORD: "Heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool; what is the house that you would build for me, and what is the place of my rest?...
think about it.
What does the Lord want to find in those in His present and future kingdom (66:1-2)? What's His promise to those who ignore His call and choose to do evil (66:3-6)? What does He promise to one day do for Jerusalem (66:12-14)? How well do you match the description of what God is looking for?
Powerful and thought provoking words from the Lord here in Isaiah 66:1-14. I was drawn to the last words of verse 2, "this is the one to whom I will look: he who is humble and contrite in spirit and trembles at my word." Now I love this whole thought, but those last four words "and trembles at my word" really grabbed me. I thought about this phrase and what it meant and ultimately ended up asking myself Does this describe me?
So what does trembling at God's Word mean to you? How can we make sure that this phrase describes our attitude and approach to God and His Word? Tami W.
