Isaiah 44:6 – 48:11 (NIV)
Dwight Safer, Small Group Leader
A summary of today’s reading is succinctly described in Isaiah 44:6b where the Lord says, “I am the first and I am the last; apart from me there is no God.”
We can spend a lifetime looking to fill our lives with things that don’t really matter. Our God is a jealous God, but not in an envious sort of way. Rather, He’s jealous when we give to another what is rightfully His.
Instead of providing you an exegesis of today’s text, I’m going to yield back a few moments of your time. I’d like to challenge us to take this opportunity to examine our hearts. Is He truly your “first and last?”
Isaiah 45:22 – “Turn to me and be saved, all the ends of the earth; for I am God, and there is no other.”
