Day 4 Isaiah 41:14-16
Isaiah 41:14-16“Do you feel like a lowly worm, Jacob? Don’t be afraid. Feel like a fragile insect, Israel? I’ll help you.I, God, want to reassure you. The God who buys you back, The Holy of Israel. I’m transforming you from worm to harrow, from insect to iron.As a sharp-toothed harrow you’ll smooth out the mountains, turn those tough old hills into loamy soil. You’ll open the rough ground to the weather, to the blasts of sun and wind and rain.But you’ll be confident and exuberant, expansive in The Holy of Israel!Today I can feel better about who I am. Today I can imagine that God will help me overcome the obstacles set before. God moves me forward today. God will provide me with answers today and the knowledge I need to get things done.He will strengthen my backbone and give me the persistence and self-control that I need to move beyond my old habits to his way for me. He will break down the mountains set before me and help me crush them into bits. I will watch them blow away. I will be confident and exuberant in the presence of my Lord. I will praise my Lord today.Lord, forgive me of my sins. I am so sorry for these habits and behaviors that I have that have made me a slave again to my fleshly desires. Strengthen me Lord. Fill me with your self-control and persistence. Help me to determine the right course of action and then help me to fulfill it using your wisdom and knowledge. Help your faith to blossom within me to bring your love, joy and peace blossoming within me. Today the mountains will be decimated and I will walk in your paths and your ways. Guide me today Lord so that I can bring glory to your name.
