a morning thought
sometimes i forget that the God Who is so personal to me ... is the same fierce God of the Old Testament ... the One who breathed all things into existence ... the same One who promises to return ... the One who knows the thoughts and intents of my heart ... i was in Isaiah this morning ... a prophetic book ... the verses once again reminded me that my trust is in THE Lord of the past, present and future ...
"... thou has been a strength to the poor, a strength to the needy in his distress, a refuge from the storm, a shadow from the heat ... " Isaiah 25:4
"He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord God will wipe away tears from all faces ..." Isaiah 25:8
"and it shall be said in that day, Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him, and he will save us ..." Isaiah 25:9
"Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee, because he trusteth in thee. Trust ye in the Lord forever; for in the Lord God is everlasting strength." Isaiah 26: 3-4
