Thank you so much for your support.
Come now, and let us reason together, says the Lord. Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be like wool. (Isaiah 1:18 AMP)
Reasoning… Oh boy, do I love to do that. I can reason myself right into a fit. What really gives me a fit is when I know I’m doing it and keep right on going, sort of reasoning with myself that I’m not really reasoning. My reasoning is different than the reasoning spoken of in Isaiah. Mine is driven by the need to control future circumstances or to lessen a risk factor. “Be prepared,” that’s my motto. Wisdom says there’s nothing wrong with being prepared. Fear says if you’re not prepared you’re not in control.
God says through Isaiah, and I paraphrase, Look at this impossible situation, your sins are like scarlet, yet, watch this, I will make them as white as snow. No wait, they look blood red but when I’m done washing you in My Blood they’ll look like a little white wooly lamb. “Come now let us reason together…”
It makes me want to throw my hands up in the air and say, “Lord, forgive me for wasting the precious time You’ve given to me trying to figure out things that are way past figuring out and are, in truth, none of my business. Help me to trust You and stop white-knuckling the reins you already have hold of. Thank you for reminding me/us that You’ll never let go. That I do know the reason for: You love me/us. Thank you, Jesus.
