My devotions today led me to Isaiah 14: 24
& 26 - 27.
"The Lord of hosts hath sworn, saying,
Surely as I have thought, so shall it come to pass; and as I have
purposed, so shall it stand:............
This is the purpose, that is
upon the whole earth: and this is the hand that is stretched out upon
all the nations.
of Hosts hath proposed, and who shall disannul it: and his hand
is stretch out, and who shall turn it back?"
Isaiah 26: 3 - 10
"He will keep in perfect peace, whose mind is
stayed on thee because he trusteth in
the Lord forever: for in the Lord JEHOVAH is everlasting
he bringeth down them that dwell on high; in the lofty city, he layeth
it low, even to the ground; he bringeth it even to the
foot shall tread it down, even the feet of the poor, and the steps of
way of the just is uprightness; thou, most upright dost weigh
the path of the just.
in the way of thy judgments, O LORD, have we waited
for thee; the desire of our soul is to thy name and to
the remembrance of thee.
soul have I desired thee in the night; yea, with my spirit within me
will I seek thee early; for when thy judgments are on the earth, the
inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness.
favor be shewed to the wicked, yet will he not be righteousness; in
the land of the uprightness will he deal unjustly, and will not behold
the Majesty Of The LORD."
