This chapter contains that great hope of resurrection – verse 19. Hope in the Lord!
* Loving God, please teach us from Your word today.
“You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you.”
This passage is a thoughtful prayer, deep and wide.
Isaiah prays for the world. He asks the Lord to open their sight.
Isaiah prays for the church, as it experiences God’s discipline.
Isaiah prays for GOOD for the people, and in the most important way – resurrection from death.
“Your dead shall live; their bodies shall rise. You who dwell in the dust, awake and sing for joy!”
This is for us to hear – We were once dust, dead in our sins, but made alive in Jesus – HALLELUJAH, SING FOR JOY!
* Father God,
You discipline us for our good.
Please put within us a spirit of joy, that once we were asleep, dead in our sins – But now You have awoken us, made us alive in Christ.
May we sing for joy, all our days.
Hallelujah, what a Saviour!
