Wesley's Notes for Isaiah 55:8


55:8 For - If any man injure you, especially if he do it greatly and frequently, you are slow and backward to forgive him. But I am ready to forgive all penitents, how many, and great, and numberless soever their sins be.

    Verse13: God gave me this on an inner healing workshop. The thorn is symbolic of our soul. Hurting people hurt people. Instead of our thorns (pain) He gives a soft and lush fir tree which is for blessing others. Instead of briars, which is symbolic of confusion and captivity of the mind, He gives the most beautiful myrtly tree...you can google search the images to get a better idea. THIS IS LIFE!

    Isaiah 55 v 6 Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near... For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither... v11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it. Our God is a faithful God
