Isaiah 49:6 NIV “It is too small a thing for you to be my servant to restore the tribes of Jacob and bring back those of Israel I have kept. I will also make you a light for the Gentiles, that you may bring my salvation to the ends of the earth.“
Hmmm . . .
That verse has been sitting there looking back at me for about an hour so far before any additional letters appeared on the screen.
I am pretty sure it was the Holy Spirit who made that one pop out of the list of available verses.
Going to be light to those who do not know my God?
If that means God is going to cause preChristians to see the light of God in me and be drawn to me so that I can be life giving to them, THAT would be different.
There is no way my soul is going to allow this to go down as a “Word from the Lord.” Too far outside my past history. And there is no way my spirit is going to let me put a different verse up there today.
So you get to seek God on your own. If you get confirmation that this is the Lord and He wants to shine His light through me to be visible to the preChristians, then pray His will into reality.
Otherwise, go indulge in some warm zucchini bread slathered with butter and catch up with me again next week.
