the Lord has spoken…did you understand what He said?

” The vision of Isaiah son of Amoz, which he saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem in the days of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah. Hear, O heavens, and listen, O earth; for the Lord has spoken: I reared children and brought them up, but they have rebelled against me. The ox knows its owner, and the donkey its master’s crib; but Israel does not know, my people do not understand.” -Isaiah 1: 1-3

This scripture does something to me. It speaks to me and about me. It begins by talking about vision. The prophet Isaiah gives the vision of children rebelling. There is a comparison between children who are reared/taught and then rebel and then the ox and donkey that knows its respective leaders/owners/guardians/etc. Do you know but still don’t understand? The vision continues and discloses that Israel (the children of God) does/do not know or understand who the Lord is. I ask you today, do you understand what the Lord has said? If not you could always ask Him again. Remember to pray for clarity and understanding. Pursue getting to know God who brought you up even if you rebelled or are rebelling now, know that you can get to know and understand what guidance/direction/instruction you missed out on. Just ask the Lord to speak again and continue in prayer for understanding.
