Isaiah 62-64, 1 Timothy 1 • Key Verse: Isaiah 62:1
Our family plays a game as we drive. Certain places along the road remind us of a past trip, so
someone says, “That’s where … .and the rest of us remember. Part of the game is guessing what
someone in the car will say in advance. It is our Ground Hog Day game—like the characters in
that movie, we say the same thing over and over again every time we come to that point in the
We are good about telling some things over and over to anyone who will listen. We like to share
what we have experienced and enjoyed. If only we were as persistent in telling people about God!
Isaiah had that kind of heart about God. He said, “For Zion’s sake I will not keep silent” (62:1).
Only one thing could get him to be quiet. He said that he would keep doing this “till her
righteousness shines out like the dawn, her salvation like a blazing torch.”
A day will come when righteousness and salvation will not only pierce the darkness but drive it
away forever. Until then, Isaiah would keep on talking, telling about the things of God.
What will you tell about today? Perhaps a bend in the road will spark the sharing of a
remembrance. A phone call will get you talking about what you are doing today or what your
plans are for tomorrow.
Isaiah wouldn’t stop talking about God. Will you?
Decide that today you will share with someone else a blessing or a lesson you’ve learned from God.
