Repentance Brings Salvation

Isaiah 30:8-18

Have you ever needed to be rescued from a difficult situation? Desperate times can move us toward solutions that are outside of God. Fear can drive us toward taking matters into our own hands to move toward a solution. Because honestly, waiting is hard. Most of us would have to admit that even waiting on God is hard. Yet we are called to wait.

In Isaiah 30, Judah was nearing complete destruction. Isaiah was reminding them that even with the impending chaos, God alone would be their salvation. They could not save themselves. The same is true for us today. When we take charge of our own circumstances and work feverishly to support our causes and defend our own reputations we are usurping God’s role. God and God alone offers salvation. We must always defer to God’s leading. Resting in repentance does not mean “doing nothing.” Do you need to experience God’s salvation? Then wait in quietness and trust. God will bring it.

    Repentance is an action word. You just can’t sit and wait for salvation. You have to come to God and ask for salvation by asking forgiveness then actually turning away from and quitting your sins.
    Sitting quietly and waiting for salvation is like sitting on the path of a erupting volcano expecting the lava to go around you.
    I usually share the Reflecting God but not today.
