Daily Devotional
September 24
Hearken to me, ye that follow after righteousness, ye that seek the LORD: look unto the rock whence ye are hewn, and to the hole of the pit whence ye are digged.
Isaiah 51:1
Here, the Lord is saying, “ Look back and remember where you came from, the pit from which you were rescued.” If you think it’s hard to be a believer, pause and remember what it was like before you invited Christ into your heart - the meaninglessness, the emptiness, the frustration, and the insecurity you felt before Jesus took up residence.

The eyes of one of the most powerful preachers in the early days of colonial America - a Puritan preacher - filled with tears whenever he talked about the Lord. Week by week, year by year, he showed tremendous tenderness toward Jesus and the people who were lost. When he was asked what made him so tender, he said, “Every Saturday night, I spend at least an hour reflecting on the days before I was saved. I remember what it was like not knowing the Lord. I remember the futility and vanity and it makes my heart break. It makes me appreciate Jesus and feel compassion for sinners all the more.”
This Daily Devotional is an excerpt from the book "A Day of Feasting" by Pastor Jon. "A Day of Feasting" is a collection of 365 short devotions from the Old Testament books of Joshua through Malachi.  If you would like your own copy of "A Day of Feasting" you may click here to go to the SearchLight Store
