Threadbare is the word that kept running through my mind this morning. I looked up the definition and agreed, this is how I was feeling. I told the Lord the truth, asked Him to show me the word in scripture and He did. “And the Master, God, stays right there and helps me, so I’m not disgraced. Therefore I set my face like flint, confident that I’ll never regret this. My champion is right here. Let’s take our stand together! Who dares bring suit against me? Let him try! Look, the Master, God, is right here. Who would dare call me guilty? Look! My accusers are a clothes bin of threadbare socks and shirts, fodder for moths!” (Isaiah 50:5-9MSG). Interesting how I so easily believed a lie. However, I did have to laugh when I went to put my socks on and one had two holes in it.
The lesson continued throughout the day and it reminded me of how much God loves us. He cares about how we feel and welcomes the truth. My heart needed the reminder and my day was changed. He truly is our champion, who can even rescue us from ourselves and replace a lie with truth.
