    The Message – #10 Isaiah continues in chapter 10 talking about the sins of Israel and God’s promises to leave a group who are dedicated to Him. Let’s focus on verse 15. Is the axe to boast itself over the one who chops with it? Is the saw to exalt itself over the one who wields it? That would be like a club wielding those who lift it, Or like a rod lifting him who is not wood.Isaiah 10:15 NASBhttps://bible.com/bible/100/isa.10.15.NASB Who should get the glory?

And He shall be your fear, And He shall be your dread.Isaiah 8:13 NASBhttps://bible.com/bible/100/isa.8.13.NASB Here’s the issue. God is holy. He is righteous and if we truly understood how holy he is and how broken and sinful we are in comparison, we would be terrified. Yet, we get “scared” of so many other things that don’t even compare. We are afraid of what our friends will think if us. We…
