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,

There are so many great scriptures in Isaiah chapters 39-41.
But right now... this scripture says it all:
Is. 41:13 For I am the Lord your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you.

Great prayer for encouragement today
Ephesians 1:18-23
18 I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, 19 and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength 20 he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, 21 far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. 22 And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, 23 which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way.

Psalm 66 Only God deserves all of the best of our praises and thanks

Shalom to all :)
