Isaiah 8:11-15God spoke strongly to me, grabbed me with both hands and warned me not to go along with this people. He said:“Don’t be like this people, always afraid somebody is plotting against them. Don’t fear what they fear. Don’t take on their worries.If you’re going to worry, worry about The Holy. Fear God-of-the-Angel-Armies. The Holy can be either a Hiding Place or a Boulder blocking your way, The Rock standing in the willful way of both houses of Israel, A barbed-wire Fence preventing trespass to the citizens of Jerusalem.Many of them are going to run into that Rock and get their bones broken, Get tangled up in that barbed wire and not get free of it.”Lord, grab a hold of me with both hands. Speak strongly to me. Let me hear the warning.Don’t let me be like this people. Don’t let me worry about someone plotting against me. Don’t let me fear what they fear. Don’t let me take on unnecessary worries.Point me to you. You are the Holy. You are the God of the Angel Armies. Be my Hiding Place. Don’t be a boulder standing in my way. Don’t be a fence keeping me out.Be my rock of strength. Be the hiding place I need. Protect me and show me that I am safe with you. Bring me peace and joy to face this day. Let me feel your arms around me as I walk through the path you have set for me.
