February 26: Righteousness

Isaiah 59:1-2; 8-9; 11

Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened, 
that it cannot save; 
nor His ear heavy, 
that it cannot hear.

But your iniquities have separated you from your God; 
and your sins have hidden His face from you, 
so that He will not hear.

The way of peace they have not known, 
and there is no justice in their ways; 
they have made themselves crooked paths; 
whoever takes that way shall not know peace.

Therefore justice is far from us, 
nor does righteousness overtake us; 
we look for light, but there is darkness! 
For brightness, but we walk in blackness! 

We all growl like bears, 
and moan sadly like doves; 
we look for justice, but there is none; 
for salvation, but it is far from us.

This is the condition of the world.  People like to say that they pray but God will not listen to a heart that is stained with sin.  Salvation will only come through God’s righteousness.

 

PRAY FOR ISRAEL TO REALIZE GOD CAN AND WILL ANSWER PRAYER BUT ONLY FROM A HEART CLEANSED FROM SIN.
