Why, O LORD?
Read - Isaiah 63:15-19
Isaiah pleads for the Lord to return to the mode of being His people’s deliverer, as He has been in the past. This is curious, given that the beginning of the chapter seems to indicate the coming of this very thing. What is key is verse 10, and Isaiah acknowledges the present distance of the people from the Lord, due to their sin. While our salvation is secure, our fellowship with the Lord can be strained in seasons of our rebellion. Are you in close communion or yearning for a return to close fellowship?
