“Bind up the testimony and seal up the law among the disciples.
I will wait for the LORD, who is hiding his face
from the house of Jacob.
I will put my trust in him.”
Isaiah 8: 16-17 (NIV)
“Bind up the testimony. . . “ My concordance defines testimony as a witness borne on behalf of something.
“. . . seal up the law among the disciples.” That same concordance tells me the law is an authoritative rule of conduct.
“I will wait for the LORD “ The prophet Isaiah states what we all should do especially when we face circumstances that can cause problems or change our lives. Sometimes we don’t wait and find things have become big messes.
When events happen that have caused problems, we need to rely upon God and His grace to work out the kinks of the circumstances. A friend of mine and her family have been through a time of intense emotion. Two hospital stays with a rehab stay sandwiched in between, coupled with miscommunication caused this family a lot of pain and stress. But several of us close to that family were praying for them. When my friend called me after a day and a half in the hospital this last time, she told me she could feel those prayers. By praying, we were trusting God in her behalf.
