Lenten Reflections: Day 29

On Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays during Lent, we invite you to reflect and respond to one highlighted Scripture reading from the Revised Common Lectionary.

Lectionary readings:

Psalm 51:1-12
Isaiah 30:15-18
Hebrew 4:1-13

Isaiah 30:15-18

For thus said the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel:
In returning and rest you shall be saved;
in quietness and in trust shall be your strength.
But you refused and said,
“No! We will flee upon horses”—
therefore you shall flee!
and, “We will ride upon swift steeds”—
therefore your pursuers shall be swift!
A thousand shall flee at the threat of one,
at the threat of five you shall flee,
until you are left
like a flagstaff on the top of a mountain,
like a signal on a hill. 

Therefore the Lord waits to be gracious to you; 
therefore he will rise up to show mercy to you.
For the Lord is a God of justice;
blessed are all those who wait for him.
