Isaiah 8:20-22

20 Look to God’s instructions and teachings! People who contradict his word are completely in the dark. 21 They will go from one place to another, weary and hungry. And because they are hungry, they will rage and curse their king and their God. They will look up to heaven 22 and down at the earth, but wherever they look, there will be trouble and anguish and dark despair. They will be thrown out into the darkness. 

Insight - As I read this verse I can’t help but think about how our world that we live in today. There are so many people living in the dark without a relationship with Jesus. Because they don’t have the instructions and teachings of the Word of God as their guide they go from one thing to another chasing pleasure and happiness but it only leads to pain and more darkness.

Prayer - Jesus, thank you for your instructions and teachings. That we can live by your example and have the Holy Spirit to guide us. Help me to be light to the people around us. I want to be part of your mission to rescue people from the darkness of sin and to bring them into a relationship with you. Open my eyes to the people and opportunities around me that I already have, and the ones you will put in my path. Amen
