“I am the Lord your God who teaches you what is best for you … ” (Isaiah 48:17).

Isaiah 48:1-22 

‘I am the Lord your God, who teaches you what is best for you, who directs you in the way you should go’ (Isaiah 48:17). God knows what is best for us. He helps us to say, ‘As for God, His way is perfect’ (Job 23:10; 2 Samuel 22:31). How does God help us to see that His way is best? He invites us to consider His love. We are to think about all that He has done for us – ‘the mercies of God’. He calls us to dedicate our lives to Him – ‘present your bodies, as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God’. Dedicating our lives to the Lord – This is ‘our ‘spiritual worship’. We are not to live for this world – ‘Do not be conformed to this world’. We are to live for the Lord – ‘be transformed by the renewal of your mind’. ‘God’s will is good, pleasing and perfect’. Learn this for yourself. Dedicate your life to Him (Romans 12:1-2).
