Today’s devotion is based on the words of Isaiah as he spoke God’s words to the people of Israel in Isaiah 28:23, “Listen and hear my voice; pay attention and hear what I say.”
We need to pay attention to the Scriptures since, in them, we see that our Lord Jesus did not come by chance to Jerusalem. As we learn more about the Old Testament, we come to learn more about Jesus and what he does in the New Testament. Remember, that the risen Lord revealed to the two disciples on the road to Emmaus all that the Torah (Old Testament) said concerning Jesus. Listen and hear what the Holy Spirit is saying to you through the Old Testament and the New Testament, for they are God’s words to you.
Please pray with me the prayer for today: Heavenly Father, gracious God, creator and sustainer of all things, seen and unseen, forgive me for taking your Scriptures for granted. Create in me a desire to learn more and to put into practice what I learn. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
