And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left. – Isaiah 30:21

I’m reading an interesting book by a self-proclaimed jewish agnostic who decided to live what the Bible commands, as literally as possible, for one year.

I was reluctant, having seen plenty of hack jobs from those with a bone to pick, but so far this author is different. I find his secular yet very honest perspective interesting.

His major problem by Day 13? – I’ll let you read his own words:

“The problem is, a lot of religion is about surrendering control and being open to radical change. I wish I could stow my secular worldview in a locker at the Port Authority Bus Terminal and retrieve it at the end of this year” – A. J.Jacobs, The Year of Living Biblically, pg 36

“The voice of the LORD breaketh the cedars … maketh the hinds to calve, and discovereth the forests: and in his temple doth every one speak of his glory” – Psalm 29:9

“And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way” – Isaiah 30:21a

God’s voice is so powerful it breaks trees, and does whatever he wants it to do. Yet, he is so gentle with us – he is heard in a whisper and lets us choose to follow.

The right course of action

God, the Master, The Holy of Israel, has this solemn counsel: “Your salvation requires you to turn back to me and stop your silly efforts to save yourselves. Your strength will come from settling down in complete dependence on me – Isaiah 30:15-17 (Message)

Sometimes, especially in a crisis, just being still and waiting on God to reveal the right course of action IS the right course of action.
