TAKE TIME: March 3-8, 2014 Schedule

Introduction: We will read only in the book of Isaiah this week. Isaiah was one of very few men in scriptures honored to see the throne of God while still alive. (Ezekiel, The Apostle Paul, and the Apostle John were the others.) Isaiah was painfully aware of his own sinfulness when in the presence of the Almighty! We will also read some of the beautiful messianic and eternal kingdom prophecies that this man of God wrote through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. Enjoy!

  • Monday - Isaiah 6:1-7:25
  • Tuesday - Isaiah 8:1-9:7
  • Wednesday - Isaiah 9:8-10:34
  • Thursday - Isaiah 11:1-12:6
  • Friday - Isaiah chapter 13
  • Saturday - Isaiah chapter 14
Memory Verse

And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots: And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD.   Isaiah 11:1-2

Prayer Journal (ACTS)
  • Adoration - Praise God that He is the Sovereign of the universe.
  • Confession - Ask God to reveal hidden sin in your life and then confess it.
  • Thanksgiving - Thank God for any answers to your prayers.
  • Supplication - What are your prayer requests this week? List them for future reference so that you can see how God answers.
Search the Scriptures

Look for references for each of the following:
  • Promises that God made and to whom He made them. Do they apply to you?
  • References that either refer to or infer something about future events.
  • What does this passage teach about Jesus?
  • Commandments that God made and to whom He made them. Do they apply to you?
Putting the Word into Action

Many of the passages we will read this week concern kingdoms both worldly and eternal. Isaiah often tells when he received a certain prophecy based upon an event in the life (or death) of the king of Judah on the throne at the time. He also tells of seeing God's throne in Heaven itself. And he talks of the future Millennial kingdom of Jesus - or perhaps it is the eternal State that he is describing - or both! This week take the time to pray for the peace of Jerusalem and for the world's leaders. It seems as though we see events unfolding every day that serve to warn us of things to come!
