Woman in the Word Wednesdays {GMG}

What am I learning about in my walk with the Lord? Hmmm…where do I begin {Do you have a year???LOL}. In brief, I am learning to totally commit, surrender, and trust in God in “All things”. God has been keeping me in Isaiah, started out with 53. And when He first told me to go there, I was a little bit token back {it’s in the old testament, you know that I love the new testament Lord}. I have to say I was a bit rebellious when I went. So I read Isaiah 53 the first day, and really didn’t get anything out of it, my heart wasn’t in it. But I asked Him again the next morning and again He said read Isaiah 53, so I prayed “God please show me what you have open my eyes that I might see, soften my heart for what you have for me”. And with that pray the Lord opened my heart some new and exciting things. Some things didn’t seem exciting, but necessary. A few of the verses {and there were many} really stuck out to me and hear I will share them.  
Isaiah 53:3-6 He is despised and rejected by men, A Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. And we hid, as it were, our faces from Him; He was despised, and we did not esteem Him. 4 Surely He has borne our griefs And carried our sorrows; Yet we esteemed Him stricken, Smitten by God, and afflicted. 5 But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed. 6 All we like sheep have gone astray; We have turned, every one, to his own way; And the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.
At this point in time in my life I was going through the dessert {not literally, but I do live in the dessert}. I was in a dry spot in my walk and didn’t know why. What struck me was He was a man of sorrows and grief. He can relate to us when we are going through sorrows and grieft. He has been there and done that. He even bore them and carried our sorrows……who would do that for us? Then in verse 5….awwwww….He was wounded for our trangressions, bruised for our iniquites. But by His stripes we are healed. Whatever sorrows I had that day, poof were gone. How could I dwell on them, I have a Savior who has saved me from all that. He loves me…..
I share with this closing verse in Isaiah 53:7
He was oppressed and He was afflicted, Yet He opened not His mouth; He was led as a lamb to the slaughter, And as a sheep before its shearers is silent, So He opened not His mouth.
How many times, when going through my trials have I opened my mouth? One to many…..and here it says He was oppressed and afflicted, yet He opened not His mouth. And then it goes on to say how He was led as a lamb to the slaughter….and a sheep before its shearers is silent. Is silent??? I know if I was a sheep I’d be kicking and screaming {of course my flesh would do that}. And again it says, so He opened not His mouth. At that moment I asked God for forgiveness for all the times I bickered and complained to Him for my trials. And I started to Praise Him for them and was encouraged to be still and to be quiet through these times. For God knows what He is doing in my life. His ways are Higher than our ways.
Isaiah 55:9 NKJ

“For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts.

So with said….God is on the throne I have nothing to worry about. Be encouraged…God knows exactly what you are going through, trust in Him. Eyes on God!

Walking with the King,
