Isaiah 30:18-23

I read this today and felt like it summed up for me what the Lord is doing now. He wants to reveal Himself to His people. He wants to give us new revelation and speak direction into our life so that we may walk in His ways and build His Kingdom. If we are willing to cast aside all other priorities and false gods in our life, He will pour out His abundance, enlarge our territory, and bring blessing.

Isa 30:18 ¶ Therefore the LORD longs to be gracious to you, And therefore He waits on high to have compassion on you. For the LORD is a God of justice; How blessed are all those who long for Him.

19 O people in Zion, inhabitant in Jerusalem, you will weep no longer. He will surely be gracious to you at the sound of your cry; when He hears it, He will answer you.

20 Although the Lord has given you bread of privation and water of oppression, [He,] your Teacher will no longer hide Himself, but your eyes will behold your Teacher.

21 And your ears will hear a word behind you, "This is the way, walk in it," whenever you turn to the right or to the left.

22 And you will defile your graven images, overlaid with silver, and your molten images plated with gold. You will scatter them as an impure thing; [and] say to them, "Be gone!"

23 Then He will give [you] rain for the seed which you will sow in the ground, and bread [from] the yield of the ground, and it will be rich and plenteous; on that day your livestock will graze in a roomy pasture.
