Well I am awake and have decided to post each day about the fast, things I am learning, and things I desire to learn. Today I am aware that I need my Father's grace. Although I desire His discipline I desire His grace more for it is a necessary component to accomplish His Holy Spirit whisperings throughout my day. I desire His Word and truth to shine through my countenance even when Izzy didn't get enough sleep, I am tired from doing laundry, sharing a car is hard with schedules, and etc. etc. Today I am trying to meditate on Isaiah 11: 1-5 This is my Jesus who is returning for His bride. I love how he is clothed with righteousness and faithfulness. I just love it.
"A SHOOT WILL COME UP FROM THE STUMP OF JESSE; FROM HIS ROOTS A BRANCH WILL BEAR FRUIT. THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD WILL REST ON HIM - THE SPIRIT OF WISDOM AND OF UNDERSTANDING, THE SPIRIT OF COUNSEL AND OF POWER, THE SPIRIT OF KNOWLEDGE AND OF THE FEAR OF THE LORD. HE WILL NOT JUDGE BY WHAT HE SEES WITH HIS EYES, OR DECIDE BY WHAT HE HEARS WITH HIS EARS; BUT WITH RIGHTEOUSNESS HE WILL JUDGE THE NEEDY, WITH JUSTICE HE WILL GIVE DECISIONS FOR THE POOR OF THE EARTH. HE WILL STRIKE THE EARTH WITH THE ROD OF HIS MOUTH; WITH THE BREATH OF HIS LIPS HE WILL SLAY THE WICKED. RIGHTEOUSNESS WILL BE HIS BELT AND FAITHFULNESS THE SASH AROUND HIS WAIST."
