BSF Study Questions People of the Promise: Kingdom Divided Lesson 21, Day 5: Skim Isaiah 58-66
12) Isaiah 58:9-14 lists if the people will turn from their ways, The Lord will guide them always, they will find joy and triumph in the heights of the land.
If you do away with the yoke of oppression,
with the pointing finger and malicious talk,
10 and if you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry
and satisfy the needs of the oppressed,
Isaiah 59:20: “The Redeemer will come to Zion, to those in Jacob who repent of their sins,” declares the Lord.
13) Isaiah 61:10: I delight greatly in the Lord;
my soul rejoices in my God.
For he has clothed me with garments of salvation
and arrayed me in a robe of his righteousness,
as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest,
and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.
I just love the picture of being wrapped up in God’s salvation and Jesus as the bridegroom and me as the bride. This is a beautiful picture of how much God loves me. This verse is very encouraging in the hard times.
14a) God has made us all and shaped us all to do His will. He is in control. He is in control of nations. We are to obey God as our Creator.
b) We all want to do our own thing, especially when God’s will for our lives is hard. We want to be in control, but we are not. Submitting to His will is the hardest part.
15) God judges His people, but He loves them so much He always calls them back to Him and offers them salvation. Those who choose God will see salvation. Those who forsake God faces judgment.
16) This verse helps me to remember that God made me for a purpose and to keep at it no matter the hardships and circumstances that arise. God looks on me with favor.
