It’s Time To Get All Stirred Up!

IDOK DEVOTION FOR WEDNESDAY, APRIL 23, 2008

I started at Isaiah 63:7 and read to 66:24 – I just couldn’t stop. And now that it is passed time to put words on this screen I wish I could put them all but we know I cannot. At least let me give you a link in case your Bible is not handy there with you and in case you will invest the time to read http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Isaiah%2063:7%20-%2066:24;&version=50;
As you would expect I saw Israel in these chapters; Israel in Her sins and Father as He drew Her back to Himself and Israel in Her Future with Him – I love to read it and seeing it come to be, oh I want to see that! And as I read the cry of Isaiah as he pleaded with God to rend the Heavens and come down to them I thought of America. Oh that He would rend the Heavens and come to us that we would tremble again at His Presence. And then I read a few words that I had to underline. It’s verse 7 of chapter 64: And there is no one who calls on Your name, Who stirs himself up to take hold of You; … . It’s the Who stirs himself up to take hold of You that I underlined. We know from the Gospels that we must be drawn by The Holy Spirit or we will never seek God but there comes a time when we as Children of the Most High, as we recognize the dryness of our souls are to stir up ourselves to get up out of our ‘lazy boy recliners’ and seek our God. We pray for America, we pray for Her repentance but are we, The Children of the Most High living here in America, ourselves stirred up? Do we tremble in awe and adoration at His Presence?
And then next I underlined in chapter 66, verse 20 and in part it reads: as the children of Israel bring an offering in a CLEAN vessel into the house of the Lord. Bring and offering in a clean vessel – oh I love that! To be a clean vessel worthy to bring an offering to our Lord. Could there be anything more wonderful than that today? I am encouraging myself to stir up myself to seek to be a clean vessel worthy of bringing HIM an offering today. He loves us so much, if we only knew and could believe!!
Chapter 66:
18 “For I know their works and their thoughts. It shall be that I will gather all nations and tongues; and they shall come and see My glory.
22 “ For as the new heavens and the new earth Which I will make shall remain before Me,” says the LORD, “ So shall your descendants and your name remain.
23 And it shall come to pass That from one New Moon to another, And from one Sabbath to another, All flesh shall come to worship before Me,” says the LORD.
Father, Holy Spirit give us wills, give us desires to stir up ourselves to seek You. Give us hearts to pursue You. Give us eyes to see the Joy and Delight on Your Face that our pursuing You would bring to You. Give us that picture of You being Blessed by us stirring up ourselves to adore You and seek You with all our hearts. Lord, it is a beautiful picture but unless You help us Holy Spirit it will fade and we will forget so we pray for Your help. Lord, rend the Heavens and pour out a fresh anointing on us to seek You and cause us to tremble with Awe and Adoration as we see You. This is our prayer this morning and You know the rest, these listed here, our IDOK Troops too – in it all make Your Glory Known to us that we will worship You. Amen and Amen. W C and family.
