Welcome! Josh and Lindsey here. We are going through the Bible together and invite you to join us! Our posts are short. Our purpose is simple. Our invite is open. Share with us what you gained from these chapters. May God’s Word fulfill its purpose in all of us as we seek Him first each day. Together.
Josh: Isaiah 25:1 “Yahweh, You are my God; I will exalt You. I will praise Your name, for You have accomplished wonders, plans formed long ago, with perfect faithfulness.” Those words are so precious to me. “With perfect faithfulness.” With all the judgement we’re reading about, it is easy to lose sight of the fact of who God IS and instead focus on the bad things he is allowing to happen because of the disobedience of his people.

What stood out to you from Isaiah 22-25?
