Recently, We prayed a marvelous passage from Isaiah, one that has been memorized by the four Evangelists and used by Handel in his Messiah: “Prepare you the way, let the mountains be brought low, the crooked ways straight, the rough ways made plain. Make straight a highway for our GOD!”
Isaiah, an 8th century prophet, used moving and brilliant images to speak to his people about their worship of false gods, didn’t he?
Let’s let his words speak to us. Let’s ponder our own obstacles to God’s coming into our hearts. Where are our high mountains? How can we carve them lower? How can we make our crooked ways straight? For our God comes, waiting to be recognized in our hearts.
