Courage to tremble?

. . . but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word (Isaiah 66:2)

If we believe that the Bible is God’s inerrant and infallible word, we must strive to obey its laws and listen carefully to its message. If someone were to come to me and say, “Nahomi, I believe, you have overlooked a requirement laid down in the Bible,” I need to freeze in my tracks, stop all other activity and listen carefully to this person. It is one thing to say, “I want to follow Him wherever He leads,” but quite another to actually set out on the path. For He sometimes leads where it is unpleasant to go, where you may need to obey a truth in scripture that people and churches have overlooked or bypassed.

“Lord grant me courage to tremble at Your word.”


  1. Nahomi,

    This is a wonderful post. My heart truly longs for more Christians with this teachable sort of attitude.

    May we never cease to pray that the Lord would do this work in all of us, His people.


  2. I am grateful for your family’s evident love for our Risen Savior! I was looking for the words to Ron Hamilton’s song, “O Rejoice in the Lord” and your family’s blog came up. I will be quoting a portion of this song in the message the Lord is laying on my heart to give to our church tomorrow. So thank you for posting the words. May the Lord continue to richly bless you as you pursue Him and strive to remain unspotted from the world. The Lord be with you – Joshua from VA
