Please Pay Attention to What God Says

Daily "Words of Wisdom" from Apply

“This is what Yahweh has said, your Repurchaser, the Holy One of Israel: “I, YHWH, am your God, the One teaching you to benefit [yourself], the One causing you to tread in the way in which you should walk. O if only you would actually pay attention to my commandments! Then your peace would become just like a river, and your righteousness like the waves of the sea.” (Isaiah 48:17-18)

The most amazing part of this scripture is the tone that our loving God Yahweh uses to implore us to be obedient. As the creator of life, it certainly would be His right to be forceful and command us into obedience. Yet His approach is loving and kind.  The scripture basically says “the answers are all there. All you must do is read the bible and be obedient.  If you were obedient then you would be protected from so many of the stresses and pain you currently are suffering. Don’t be so self-righteous and think you are smarter than God. Pay attention to what He say. Please. Be obedient. Yahweh’s ways are best. Yahweh is as close to you as you want Him to be.”
