Isaiah 28-29, Acts 23:12-35
28 Grain for bread is crushed,
Indeed, he does not continue to thresh it forever.
Because the wheel of his cart and his horses eventually damage it,
He does not thresh it longer.
To thresh means to separate. And when Isaiah reads that he does not continue to thresh the grain so as to not damage it, that speaks to me. How often do I thresh my sin, meaning separate it to the point that I no longer see how God wants to heal me instead of damage me. So often I will perpetuate this guilt from sin when God has already separated my sin from my soul. He has forgiven me and poured grace over me. He desires nothing but union with me, not separation. Lord allow me to rise in the same manner bread rises when baked so that I might be filled with your love and grace.
