“O Lord, be gracious to us; we long for You. Be our strength every morning, our salvation in times of distress.” Isaiah 33:2
Immediately after praying to God to save Israel, Isaiah describes Israel’s distress: the Assyrians rejected their petition for peace, Lebanon was destroyed and the plains of Sharon resembled a wilderness. Isaiah’s trust in God never faltered. He believed God’s promises that He would preserve Israel and deliver His people. Because of this Isaiah could believe the above verse with confidence.
Like Isaiah, we can depend on God in times of distress and trouble. Call upon Him in such times and feel the strength which can only come from God, descend upon you!
In His Love, Do All You Can, While You Can, As Long As You Can, To All You Can….Have a Beautifully Blessed Day!
