Tonight I am taking in this passage from Isaiah:
O LORD, you are my God,
I extol you, I praise your name; For you have carried out your wonderful plans of old, faithful and true.
For you have made the city a heap, the fortified city a ruin, The castle of the insolent, a city no more, not ever to be rebuilt. Therefore a strong people will honor you, ruthless nations will fear you.
For you have been a refuge to the poor, a refuge to the needy in their distress; Shelter from the rain, shade from the heat. When the blast of the ruthless was like a winter rain, the roar of strangers like heat in the desert, You subdued the heat with the shade of a cloud, the rain of the tyrants was vanquished.
On this mountain the LORD of hosts will provide for all peoples A feast of rich food and choice wines, juicy, rich food and pure, choice wines. On this mountain he will destroy the veil that veils all peoples, The web that is woven over all nations. He will destroy death forever. The Lord GOD will wipe away the tears from all faces; The reproach of his people he will remove from the whole earth; for the LORD has spoken. On that day it will be said: “Indeed, this is our God; we looked to him, and he saved us! This is the LORD to whom we looked; let us rejoice and be glad that he has saved us!”
Isaiah 25: 1-9
As it was foretold, God has provided for all of us. He gave us the richest bread and wine. He destroyed the veil and destroyed death’s power over us. He will wipe away the tears from all faces. His plans for us are indeed wonderful and beyond our human comprehension.
O Lord, you are my God!
I praise your name! I want to be among the strong people who honor you! I rejoice in your plans! Thank you for saving us!
