Most of us think if given the choice between a knockoff and the real thing, we'd choose the real thing. Isaiah reveals our God as He really is: incomparable in His power and purpose. Anything else we invest our lives in is just a pale imitation of the life God has purposed for us. Put yourself in the story as God confronts and comforts His rebellious people, rebellious people who are loved by God and are being refined and readied for a glorious future. Choose the real thing!
