Rescue is what God does best
From 40 Days of Prayer and Fasting Guide
Call to Prayer
Using brutal images, Isaiah 59 describes the effects of sin. Sin disconnects us from God making us blind and vulnerable. But while sin gripped us tightly in its coils, God stepped in to rescue us. “He saw that there was no man to intercede; then His own arm brought Him salvation” (Isaiah 59:16).
Today as you read, fast, and pray, know that Isaiah 59:21 is true for you. Though our sin causes us to feel distant from Jesus, His love is never far from us. Take a moment to confess any sins, then thank God for sending Jesus to rescue us. May you experience the joy of your salvation today!
