Daily Musings – Day 42: Ez 29-45

Ever since God created humanity, his desire has been for people to live. Whatever we think of the creation story, whether it is literal or metaphorical, one thing is clear: God gives commands for people to follow and stay clear of death. This desire of God for his people to live is also reflected in... Continue Reading →

Daily Musings – Day 41: Ez 14-28

When God reveals Israel's unfaithfulness to Ezekiel, he condemns their idolatry, but he chooses to work on the wandering hearts of his people. Recapturing hearts God tells Ezekiel, "Son of man, these men have set up idols in their hearts and put wicked stumbling blocks before their faces. Should I let them inquire of me at all?"...

Daily Musings – Day 39: Jer 35-50

What stood out for me in this reading was God's faithfulness.

Daily Musings – Day 35: Isa 32-47

This reading mentions God's power and uniqueness several times. It was a good reminder that there is, indeed, no one like the God of the Bible. Matchless and incomparable Isaiah writes, "Who has measured the waters in the hollow of his hand, or with the breadth of his hand marked off the heavens? Who has held... Continue Reading →

Daily Musings – Day 34: Isa 10-31

God spoke to Israel through prophets, but they did not care to listen. They continued to rebel, ignoring God's warnings of judgement and pleas to return to him. While God's justice is a significant theme in the books of the prophets, his love and grace are also very evident. Justice and love towards unwilling hearts... Continue Reading →

Daily Musings – Day 33: Eccl 9 – Isa 9

The prophetic books contain several portions that describe Israel's disobedience against God. Isaiah 1 is one such portion that throws light on their unfaithfulness, reminding me of my own shortcomings.
