Looking Forward

I just finished reading the book of Isaiah this morning.
You can't help but rejoice in thinking about a future reign of a perfect, righteous leader.
I can't help but be comforted to think about a time when good will be rewarded and evil dealt with justly.

"And when ye see this, your heart shall rejoice,
and your bones shall flourish like an herb:
and the hand of the LORD shall be known toward his servants,
and his indignation toward his enemies."
Isaiah 66:14

God is the just and righteous King.
He is in control of every event and circumstance.
Since it hit me so hard this morning,
I must have really needed this reminder.

  2. We just finished reading the book of Isaiah as a family. I was encouraged by the picture it gives of the new heaven and the new earth. No more tears, crying, or killing--best of all God is there, and hears out prayers before we ask. Very encouraging when one looks around at the world of violence and despair.-Emma
