    I feel that Isaiah 58 is a call to action , I feel that we fast and say that we are waiting on God, but this scripture means in my understanding that God is waiting on us to represent Him in the earth by, caring for widows orphans and strangers. He requires us to feed, clothe and shelter them. This is true religion, any ministry or Christian that does not have a heart for the least of these does not truly have a heart for God. He has recently impressed upon me as an individual that this is what is on His mind for me. Seek he first the kingdom of God His way of doing things and all of these things will be added unto you!
