This Week's WORD

The LORD, the God of Israel, has spoken...
The LORD has spoken.
Isaiah 21:17, 22:25

That's pretty much what it came down to. Much of what Isaiah had to say was unpleasant and unpopular - Who wants to hear prophecies about judgment and destruction??? - but he spoke what the LORD told him to say. Period.
There really was no sense in arguing or complaining about it.
God spoke.
And so it was.

And so it is today.
May each of us listen to and obey God's Word today. And always.

Have a joy-filled weekend. See you back here Monday!

That does just pretty much sum it up. "God has spoken," that's it, nothing else to it.

I kinda think about when I tell my kids no to something and then they whine, "Why?" and I tell them, "Because-I-Said-So!"

'Nuff said!

smooches,

Amen! The prophets said much that was unpopular and Jesus also said much that was unpopular. But once again, He isn't asking for our opinion just our obedience.

This is a great Word for today Karen!
Have a great weekend! Much love!

I just LOVE the simplicity of our Most Amazing God! Simple yet way beyond our understanding all at the same time!

How is your back doing?
