Listen to me all who hope for deliverance—all who seek the Lord. (that’s me)
Consider the quarry from which you were mined,
the rock from which you were cut. Isaiah 51:1
This is the scripture that was in the forefront of my mind as I awaken this morning. Perhaps it was all the thoughts of rocks, pebbles, and mountains that have been swirling around in my mind as I prepare for Bible study that caused this scripture to be impressed upon my mind.
Further reading of this passage in Isaiah revels that the writer is focusing on the Israelites ancestors Abraham and Sarah. But I can’t help but think of it terms of the ultimate rock-Jesus. As a believer, He is my ultimate foundation and it is from Him that the whole pattern of my life has been cut out.
