Seeing life's events in the light of God's Word.

A High Wall, Cracked and Bulging

on August 7, 2022

Isaiah 30:13- “This sin will become for you like a high wall, cracked and bulging, that collapses suddenly, in an instant.”

The evening news is filled with videos of storms taking place in The United States. Homes destroyed.

Lives lost.

One day everything is fine. Then bad weather brings destruction.

The devastation reminds me of the verse from Isaiah. A word picture of sin’s devastating effects.

My friend felt like there was a wall between her and her husband, but she didn’t know what it was. Months later, she learned about her husband’s affair, and their marriage crumbled in an instant. 

When someone tries to keep sin a secret, or continues on the sinful path, it becomes a high wall keeping them from having a relationship with a spouse, family and friends. 

A cracking. A bulging. 

It also destroys our relationship God.

Note: I am not saying our current storms have anything to do with man’s sin. That is not the message here. Only God knows that. 

This blog post is simply a vivid picture of what sin can do in our lives.

The Bible tells us to confess our sin and experience forgiveness and restoration of relationships.—especially our relationship with Him.
