Surprised to See Wonder Here


And the Lord said: 

"Because this people draw near with their mouth and honor me with their lips, while their hearts are far from me, 
and their fear of me is a commandment taught by men, therefore, behold, I will again do wonderful things with this people, with wonder upon wonder; and the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the discernment of their discerning men shall be hidden.”

Isaiah 29:13-14



It was unexpected.

    1. That He pursues us even when we do not know anything.

  4. In a commentary that I read..."there's a blindness to mechanical religion". "Empty ritualism does not bring closeness to God. The principle of resorting to human wisdom rather than divine wisdom was the spiritual plague of Jerusalem." God will intervene in the future...

  5. "I will again do wonderful things with this people, with wonder upon wonder;" I love the hope that gives us in this time of feeling like things aren't so wonderful. God has not forsaken us. Thank you.

  7. Hi Sandi,
    all wonderful things can be expected of our God. As far as 'wise' men are concerned 'He uses the foolish things to confound the wise.' God bless, lovely pic.

  15. We can be thankful for the words of the prophet; we need to be kept in sincerity.

    The tulip is beautiful - but reminds me: "As snow in summer, and as rain in harvest, so honour beseemeth not a fool", Proverbs 26:1.
