Isaiah 31-35

We hear more about the Kingdom of Righteousness with our Savior in charge in Isaiah 31-35.

The LORD is our king, our everything.  That's right where God wants to be in our lives.

You know yesterday as we read Isaiah 26-30, I mentioned this fear that kept creeping in, my own insecurities, as God reveals His judgement on all people.  I even wondered what that says about my own faith.

I didn't have an answer yesterday, and I left it at that.

And then today, I read this assurance...

Strengthen the feeble hands,
  steady the knees that give way;
say to those with fearful hearts,
  "Be strong, do not fear;
   your God will come,
   he will come with vengeance;
   with divine retribution
   he will come to save you."

Our gracious and compassionate God who is overflowing with love for us hears us. He knows us, and He comes to us with the words we need to hear and know.

A prayer for today-

Dear God,

I thank You for knowing me from the inside out and for blessing me the words I need to hear.  

I give my fears and insecurities to You, Lord.

You are my Lord and Savior, my everything.  Your grace is more than enough for life.

______________________ is on my heart today.  Be with ______________________ in the days to come.  

I also pray for my family, my community, my state, this nation, and all of the countries in the world because we need You more than anything else.  

Lord, be gracious to us.  We long for you.  Be our strength every morning, and our salvation (Isaiah 33:2).

You are our eternal Rock and our Redeemer.  

In the name of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit I pray,
