Not sin but stubbornness

RE Verse reading–Isaiah 30:1-17, 31:1 (day seven)  “This is what the Sovereign Lord, the Holy One of Israel, says: ‘In repentance and rest is your salvation, in quietness and trust is your strength, but you would have none of it.’ ” (vs 15)  Ultimately, it is not sin that destroys a person or a nation.  It is stubbornness.  The Bible says, “there is none righteous, no, not one” (Romans 3:10)  Isaiah calls God, “the Holy ONE of Israel”.  So long as we will look to that ONE for help, there is a solution for sin, no matter how large or dark.  When we refuse, there ceases to be hope.  We will meet today around God’s hopeful/sad words.  In repentance and rest we can all find salvation.  In quietness and trust , strength.  When we stubbornly refuse, there is nothing that can be done.   May the Lord melt our stubborn hearts.  We need His salvation like never before.  I will see you in a few hours.–Don
