November 30 - Isaiah 6 and 7

Isaiah 6:1-7 is so stunning that I rarely consider verse 8 and following.  Moreover, I had never considers how 6:8-13 flowed into Isaiah 7, where King Ahaz keeps on hearing, but does not understand; keeps on seeing, but does not perceive.  His heart is dull to the promise of the virgin with child called Immanuel, the holy seed and stump that remains after the the oak of Judah is felled.
Have mercy on us, O Lord, that we may not be abandoned in the darkness of our dull hearts, but may see in the Light of Your Son who takes away our guilt and atones for our sin.
