Life Without Sin
Daily Reading // Isaiah 14:1-21
READY // SILENCIO
Take a moment to quiet your mind and prepare your heart for your time with the Lord.
READ // LECTIO
Read the passage above up to three times aloud. Allow yourself to feel the words as they are read.
REFLECT // MEDITATIO
Now direct your focus on the words, phrases concepts or sentences that got your attention. What is God speaking to you today through His word?
Isaiah 14:7 The whole earth is at rest [and] quiet; They break forth into singing.
These verses in chapter 14 refer, either figuratively or literally, to Satan. Verse 7 describes the rest and rejoicing that will take place when he is out of the way. Can you imagine a world with no sin? A world where there is no greed, selfishness, conflict, pride, disease or pain? That’s the rest we really need. And it is coming! It’s just a matter of time universally. But I will do all I can to rid my life of sin and its effects TODAY.
RESPOND // ORATIO
Pray in response to what the Lord has spoken to you.
Lord, You have give me freedom from sin and its enslaving power in my life. I choose to take up that freedom today. Sin is not a pleasure, it is truly a prison.
