Isaiah 39:1-41:16


Every time I read the 39th chapter of Isaiah I get upset. Hezekiah shows no understanding that God is a God of generations. There is no concern about his on off-spring. He is a I got mine, now you get yours. When his life was on the line, he turned his face to the wall and prayed for his life. When his children’s life is on the line he can only say, "This message you have given me from the LORD is good." But the king was thinking, "At least there will be peace and security during my lifetime." (39:8). When the Assyria was “knocking” at the door using intimidating words, the Lord your God, a statement made to Isaiah quickly become the Lord my God.

How much of this unconcern for the next generation is infused within our church’s. How many of us are sacrificing our children so we can say, “At least there will be peace and security during my lifetime?

A good man leaveth an inheritance to his children's children: and the wealth of the sinner is laid up for the just. (Pro 13:22)

The inheritance we leave for our children should never be a negative one it should be one that secures their spiritual future.

Grace and peace,

Oh my! Today is my first day reading along with you and here we are looking at the first verse the Lord ever quickened into my spirit 26 years ago when I got saved.

Isaiah 41:10 says Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.

At the time, I had no clue of the many trials and tribulations ahead and how much fear would try to dominate my life. My Pastor says the right hand signifies His greatest strength. Thank you for nudging me back to this today. You are a blessing.,,

He makes everything work out according to his plan.
In the worries of everyday life, the corruption of society, the greed, hate, and dissent, we know that our God (who is greater then anyone) makes everything work out according to his plan. This is comforting.
