Hi, God’s word for me today is in Isaiah 42:16 which says, “I will lead the blind by the ways they have not known, along unfamiliar paths I will guide them; I will turn the darkness into light before them and make the rough places smooth. These are the things I will do; I will not forsake them.”
How could Isaiah do that? He can’t make a rough place smooth even if he did say abracadabra the rough place wouldn’t go poof and become smooth, or something like that. But God can. Yeah but this is Isaiah talking. God is actually the one talking through Isaiah. So what God is saying is that God is going to help the blind people, right? Yes, and He did do that, but it also means its going to help us. Cool, so we are going to have really great lives, and all the places that look rough are going to be smooth. No, I didn’t say that, I said that He would help us, not make everything good, He is going to help us through those hard times,
“No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.” (ESV 1 Corinthians 10:13)
That includes temptations, He will lead us and light the paths before us, that reminds me when, since we’re using this example, it was all dark, pitch black, but then God lighted our path with the sun, that time was the cross, we were in our sins, we were dying, but then Jesus made a way, He took all of our sins on Him, so that we wouldn’t die, of course we die physically, but not spiritually, thank you Jesus.
Jesus died for our sins, He took the penalty, ”
He is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the sins of the whole world. (ESV 1 John 2:2)
Do you believe that Jesus died for your sins on the cross?
Grace and truth, Charity Cleveland.
