We’ve Got a Trail to Blaze

January 22, 2021

Isaiah 40:3-5 (KJV)

3 "The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make straight in the desert a highway for our God.

4 "Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain:

5 "And the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together: for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it."

When Isaiah spoke these words he was telling us about a man we call John the Baptist. Several scriptures proclaim this message: Malachi 3:1; Matthew 3:3; Mark 1:2-3; Luke 3:4; and John 1:23. The message was about repentance, the messenger was John the Baptist, and the message was about Jesus being the fulfillment of these prophets words.

The message was simply this: “Prepare ye that way of the Lord. Make straight in the desert a highway for our God." The reason as one minister said was so that “the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shal see it together."

Look at these words to a song written by Steven Curtis Chapman:

Started out this morning

In the usual way

Chasing thoughts inside my head

Of all I had to do today

Another time around the circle

Try to make it better than the last

I opened up the Bible

And I read about you and me

Said we'd all been prisoners

And God's grace had set us all free

Somewhere between the pages

It hit me like a lightning bolt

I saw a big frontier in front of me

And I heard somebody say

"Let's go!"

Saddle up your horses

We've got a trail to blaze

Through the wild blue yonder of God's amazing grace

Let's follow our leader into the glorious unknown

This is a life like no other

Whoa Whoa

this is the great adventure ...

Praise God! We are getting ready for the ride of our lives, so I thank You, Father, for the greatest adventure of a life time. In Jesus's name, Amen.

Blessings on the journey, and remember the best is yet to come.
