Lord, Come Down

Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth: Does it seem safer to ask God to look down on us or to come down to us?

In Isaiah 63 the prophet asks God to “look down from heaven” (v. 15). He asks God to look at the people’s sin.

Then, in the next chapter, he changes his request: “Oh, that you would rend the heavens and come down” (64:1). Isaiah is asking God to become more directly involved, to stir things up, to change the hearts of people.

It’s easy to ask God to look down: “Lord, please watch over us. Please keep us safe. Keep us in Your care.” It’s more challenging to ask God to come down: “Lord, please convict us of sin. Please interrupt our routine and show us Your plans. Help us to embrace suffering so we can be more like You.”

Lord, rend the heavens and come down.
