Have you ever had one of those seasons where you just felt kind of lost? You look around at your life and nothing is going the way you thought it would. You call out to God but nothing seems to change and you find yourself wondering if God has even heard your prayer. Inside you just wish God would tear open the heavens and come down and fix everything that is broken so that you could know for sure that he is real. If you ever felt this way you aren’t alone.
In Isaiah 64 one of the Old Testament prophets was prophecy about the oppression and suffering that God’s people would face in the future and he stopped his prophecy in order to be God to “Rend the heavens and come down.” Hundreds of years later God Mark comes to tell us how it is that God chose to answer Isaiah’s prayer. So lets look at Mark 1 and see how God rent the heavens and came down in order to rescue a lost people and offer them the identity that they had been seeking all of their life.
