You can see a little bit of the destruction in the wall of Jerusalem behind me. During Isaiah’s time the walls were completely destroyed, and mothers were afraid enemies would come and take their children into slavery.
Today your walls of security and protection may be completely destroyed. But God says, “I will not forget you. I have your name engraved in my hands. Your walls are ever before me" (Isaiah 49:15, 16, NIV). Maybe you have a wall that is broken. Maybe it is a relationship that is completely destroyed. Maybe your emotional health is crumbling and you are suffering depression. Maybe your physical health is broken down. You may have many things around you that are completely destroyed, walls that you see and say, "How come by my power I can't put all these pieces together?"
But it is not impossible for Jesus. He says that your walls are ever before Him. He will not forget you. God can put the pieces together. Come to Him and say, "Lord, take my walls, they are destroyed; but I believe Your word that You will never forget me. And my walls you can completely renew and bring together." May God bless you as you trust in Jesus and His complete healing in your life.
This mountain fort of Masada is where the Jewish rebels made the choice not to become slaves of the Roman Empire. A time is coming when believers in God will need to decide whether to become slaves to the government of the world or to remain true to our God. Which will you choose?
Here we are on a windy day at Qumran where the book of Isaiah was found with the Dead Sea Scrolls in the caves on these mountains. Isaiah wrote, “Arise, shine” (60:1). In the next chapter Isaiah described what Jesus would take upon Himself to do: “…preach good tidings, bind up the brokenhearted, proclaim liberty to the captives…” (61:1). These are our marching orders; this, my sisters, is how we arise and shine.
Danijela Schubert focuses on the impossible things God calls us to do and presents examples of women in the Bible who were called to do the impossible and then through His grace and strength made it possible. At the crucial time, whether it affected them personally or entire nations, when God called these biblical characters, they made a life-changing decision, to go or not to go. Each willingly said, "I will go." God is calling YOU. What is your answer?
