Notes & Transcripts

isa 30:18-
Isaiah 30:18–22 ESV
Therefore the Lord waits to be gracious to you, and therefore he exalts himself to show mercy to you. For the Lord is a God of justice; blessed are all those who wait for him. For a people shall dwell in Zion, in Jerusalem; you shall weep no more. He will surely be gracious to you at the sound of your cry. As soon as he hears it, he answers you. And though the Lord give you the bread of adversity and the water of affliction, yet your Teacher will not hide himself anymore, but your eyes shall see your Teacher. And your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, “This is the way, walk in it,” when you turn to the right or when you turn to the left. Then you will defile your carved idols overlaid with silver and your gold-plated metal images. You will scatter them as unclean things. You will say to them, “Be gone!”

God is waiting for you to wait

Stop taking action on your own. Stop panicking like a whirling dervish. Stop drinking sewage to avoid feeling thirsty. Thirst for more of God.

God is waiting for you to trust

Who is more trustworthy and just than God? And yet who is more merciful and gives more grace than He?

God is waiting for you to repent

Take action in your waiting and trusting. Smash the idols you have been worshipping in place of God. If you don’t smash the idols in your life, they’ll smash you. Humpty Dumpty with a wall addiction…your life just keeps falling apart. Change who you rely on to the almighty reliable Son of God.
