Daily Devotional
September 19
A bruised reed shall he not break, and the smoking flax shall he not quench: he shall bring forth judgment unto truth. He shall not fail nor be discouraged, till he have set judgment in the earth: and the isles shall wait for his law.
Isaiah 42:3-4
Jesus doesn’t smash the reed that bends under the heat of the sun. Nor does He douse the smoking flax that doesn’t ignite easily. In fact, as evidenced by the parable of the lost sheep (Luke 15), Jesus seems to be most interested in the person who is hurting or struggling. Over and over again, Satan will tell you that if your reed is bruised or your flax is nothing more than smoke that Jesus is really tired of you and about to give up on you. But that’s a lie. Jesus doesn’t break the bruised reed. He doesn’t extinguish the smoking flax. You might look at yourself as hopeless. But He doesn’t. He sees you as you’re going to be. He’s not discouraged because, although you might fail time and again, He won’t.
This Daily Devotional is an excerpt from the book "A Day of Feasting" by Pastor Jon. "A Day of Feasting" is a collection of 365 short devotions from the Old Testament books of Joshua through Malachi.  If you would like your own copy of "A Day of Feasting" you may click here to go to the SearchLight Store
