Summarize what you read in one paragraph:
Sorrow of the ungodly and joy of the redeemed!
These chapters are a warring to those who live unrighteous lifestyles and do wicked things. God’s wrath is ignited by that. Just like today, people go throughout their days thinking they can go on without God, like they are the king. There is a promise of God winning and God erasing all of the ungodly idol worship and reigning as the true king for all of eternity.
What is one key verse?
All of chapter 35 was key to me because it speaks of the joy that will be had by the redeemed of God. It seems like there is so much going wrong in our world constantly and it can seem hopeless. But there is a time coming, like chapter 35 talks about, when we can see hope fulfilled.
How does what you read change your vision of God?
It reminds me and reaffirms that God is in control. There is a reason to have a lot of hope because of that.
How does what you read change your vision of yourself or others?
It reminds me to not buy in to all of the negativity that is going on around me, and not let that control my life. And encourages me to reach out to the ungodly so they can experience the joy of the redeemed.
How will you Go With God because of this reading? (What is an action step?)
Where did you see Jesus in these chapters? (What made you think about Jesus?)Chapter 35:4 “Be strong, do not fear, your God will come. He will come with vengeance, with divine retribution. He will come to save you.” Jesus was God coming to earth to save us. I see Jesus as the glory of our Lord and splendor of our King.
