Isaiah 11-12 B

This is such a holy, soul-quenching chapter on the promises of God’s love and the hope he extends us through his son Jesus.

If you didn’t read today’s chapters and you’re skimming this post from your email, pause and read them. Nothing we can post on here will do God’s words justice!

“He will delight in obeying the Lord. He will not judge by appearance nor make a decision based on hearsay. He will give justice to the poor and make fair decisions for the exploited.” 11:3-4a

I love being reminded what godly character looks like. We read here that godliness is striving for obedience to what God asks of us and advocating for the vulnerable. Do not miss this: God regularly favors the poor and exploited. How can we not?

That second sentence really jumps out to me. He will not judge by appearance nor make a decision based on hearsay. I’m praying that God develops that ability in me too, and I learn to love others as limitless as he does.

What verses from these chapters moved your heart?
