May 6, 2022: Day 97 – Isaiah 59-64

We find ourselves totally immersed in Isaiah for this reading.  The end of 59 reminds us of the covenant that God has made with us, it is one where the Spirit of God has been placed within us and that Spirit is passed down through the generations.  We see the glory of Zion in chapter 60 and the verses of a familiar hymn that we sing: Arise, your light has come…

When we get to chapter 61 we see the words that Jesus spoke in his home synagogue in Nazareth and the words that we are called to emulate: “the Lord has annointed me to preach good news to the poor…”  We can’t make it through this reading without highlighting 64:8 where we read: “We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of your hand.”  That is our lot, that is our state, we are the clay in the hands of the potter looking to be shaped and molded for the sake of his kingdom
