Where’s Jesus? Try Behind You

Isaiah 30:21 – “And your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, “This is the way, walk in it.”

This verse makes me think of John in the book of Revelation. Several times he heard one thing and turned to see something else. We hear the voice of God, his word, Jesus. Because we are walking in the way of the world, going the wrong direction, it calls from behind us. We hear it, but we can’t see it. But, when the voice calls from behind, it is telling us to turn and to walk to it. Having turned, we see the way that we should go.

Jesus is often behind me, behind you, behind us, calling us to turn. We think we see him in front of us as we go on our own way. But, we need to listen for him and to him so that we turn around. And, when we turn around we see who he really is, not who we made him out to be in our mind.
