“I am the Lord your God, who teaches you to profit, who leads you in the way you should go. If only you had paid attention . . . ! Then your well-being would have been like a river, and your righteousness like the waves of the sea” (Isaiah 48:17-18, emphasis added).
But often Israel rebelled—and paid dearly for it.
Why did they disobey?
They did not trust Him. Do we? How we choose to live shows whether we do or don’t.
If we believe He loves us and knows what’s best, then doesn’t obedience make perfect sense?
If only . . . .
God doesn’t want us to miss out, as Israel did.
We’re dealing with the same God, and He still wants to bless!
