Isaiah 47,48,49; Romans 9:1-15

And he is God, the one who rules over everything and is worthy of eternal praise! Amen. Romans 9:5b NLT.

Words of a savior, who writes names on the palms of his hands, in Isaiah.

Thoughts on God’s mercy and compassion on whom he chooses. Before we are born and have done anything good or bad–he loves. Romans.

I read of Babylon’s beauty and coming shame. Worthless idols, human wisdom and knowledge, astrology and all that wants to dethrone the Lord–he won’t stand it. Not then. Not today.

All of this stops me in my tracks, to put him first.

Lord, I pray that I would live my life with you always first. How do I keep you held high, when lesser things dance and distract me? Your word regains my focus. You are redeemer and savior–my name written in blood on your hands. I want to always remember this.

One response to “Isaiah 47,48,49; Romans 9:1-15

  1. Good question! How do we keep Christ first in our thoughts and our daily activities. Should there ever be a moment when He is not on our hearts? Either praising or praying or calling on Him for help; rejoicing or crying or pondering this life – a streaming conversation with Jesus Christ instead of wondering where He was at the end of the day. He is, always. Are we aware?
