Daily D – Isaiah 28:26, 29
Isaiah 28:26 His God instructs him and teaches him the right way.
Isaiah 28:29 All this also comes from the Lord Almighty, whose plan is wonderful, whose wisdom is magnificent.
Instructors love students who enjoy learning. Our Father in heaven loves it when we lean in to listen to his wisdom and understanding. (Isaiah 28:26, 29)
This chapter in Isaiah is fascinating. There is strong warning, there is malicious mockery, there is a beautiful promise for those who repent and return, and there is resolute judgment for those who tell God to please go away.
When God withdraws at their request, he makes a promise. Even though they want nothing to do with him, he still loves them and wants to draw them to himself. He has laid plans in place for renewal, restoration, and salvation in spite of their rebellion and rejection.
God’s wisdom and understanding are available to all who will receive it. The example of a farmer is given in verses 23-29. God gives farmers understanding to know what to do with plowing and planting, with the soil and the seed. He gives them wisdom for how to harvest each crop to maximize its production.
Verse 29 tells God’s wisdom is his gift to those who will receive it. Soil and seeds make us think about Jesus and one of his well-known parables (Luke 8:4-15). God’s gift of wisdom reminds us of Jesus’ half-brother James who wrote in his letter, “If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you,” (1:5).
What knowledge do you need? What wisdom do you require? All you have to do is ask. Lean in to listen. Trust what God says. He will get you where you need to go. He will empower you for what needs to be done. He will never ever lead you in the wrong way or toward the wrong end.
Are you one of our Father’s favorite students? You can be.
I will lean in to listen to what God wants to teach me now.
Our Father, my ears are open. My mind is ready. Teach me. Give me knowledge, wisdom, insight, and understanding that I may live a fruitful and effective life. Amen.

Acts 10:34, 35 Then Peter began to speak: “I now realize how true it is that God does not show favoritism but accepts from every nation the one who fears him and does what is right.”
Acts 5:38, 39 Therefore, in the present case I advise you: Leave these men alone! Let them go! For if their purpose or activity is of human origin, it will fail. But if it is from God, you will not be able to stop these men; you will only find yourselves fighting against God.”
