Will you restrain yourself at these things, O Lord? Will you keep silent, and afflict us so terribly? —Isaiah 64:12
Hundreds of years after Isaiah penned his prophecy, a righteous Man would come to this earth. He would live a sinless life and die the death of sinners in their place. And now that holy, righteous Son of God stands and intercedes for us in heaven. He invites us to be clothed in His righteousness and cry out in His name.
We have no righteousness of our own. We could never approach God and ask Him to rend the heavens and come down. Why would He come down to a place like ours?
He came down once, though, because He loved the world so much. And He’s coming back some day to take over and cleanse this world of all evil, to bring in a new heaven and a new earth. But in the meantime, God wants to rend the heavens and come down and visit His people. He wants to visit your life, your family, your church, this nation, and the nations of this earth with His amazing, awesome presence.
Make it Personal
Cry out to God, that He would come down and visit our messed-up planet and make it once again holy and beautiful for the glory of His name.
