TOPIC: THE HIGHWAY OF HOLINESS TEXT: ISAIAH 35 :1-10 In most of our past reading of the book of Isaiah, intimations of warnings, judgments and destruction featured prominently. These were meant to affirm how much the Lord is against disobedience and idolatry which He would not allow to go unpunished. But in today's meditation, we see the picture of the highway of holiness that leads to the city of peace and tranquility. The highway of holiness is the route to the Promised Land. But it is filled with trials and temptations. So, unless it is transformed, the journey becomes difficult. But the Prophet brought them words that would inspire them to reach the goal by saying: "Strengthen ye the weak hands, and confirm the feeble knees...." We need to critically examine the weaknesses in our lives and allow God to give us strength to get back on the highway of holiness which leads to a glorious destination that only the ransomed can enter. Walking on the highway of holiness is the assurance of a successful pilgrimage into the land that offers joy and gladness, to the exclusion of sorrow and sighing.
Are you ready to travel on the highway of holiness into God's presence? PRAYER
Keep me, Oh Lord, on the highway of holiness which leads to eternity with Christ, in Jesus name, Amen.
