Friday – Prophets
Reading – Isaiah 16-18
“The whole land will look like a grainfield after the harvesters have gathered the grain. It will be desolate, like the fields in the valley of Rephaim after the harvest.”
Isaiah 17:5 NLT
In case you didn’t know, I’m a writer.
So is God.
I love it when I see verses like this that graphically illustrate the points God wants to show in His story. You can picture in your mind’s eye how desolate the land of Israel became. You can feel how desperate the remnant of Israel became. You can relate it to desperate times in your own life.
Then their subsequent repentance makes perfect sense.
Then our repentance makes perfect sense in the light of our desperation.
Keep your eyes open for passages like this and let your imagination bring the lessons home.
Do poetic and descriptive passages catch your attention or help you walk closer to God?
Can clever words help you share your story of Faith?
