Isaiah 13:17-19:10

There’s a lot of activity in Isaiah. People and places, lifting, shifting, balances teetering. The entire book is a study alone.

24 The Lord Almighty has sworn,

“Surely, as I have planned, so it will be,
    and as I have purposed, so it will happen.
25 I will crush the Assyrian in my land;
    on my mountains I will trample him down.
His yoke will be taken from my people,
    and his burden removed from their shoulders.”

26 This is the plan determined for the whole world;
    this is the hand stretched out over all nations.
27 For the Lord Almighty has purposed, and who can thwart him?
    His hand is stretched out, and who can turn it back? (Isaiah 14:24-27, NIV)

But in all the activity, among many verses that call out, I focus here. It’s awe inspiring, fear inducing, reverential, and comforting–the sovereignty, might, trustworthiness and faithfulness of the Lord.

Surely as he has planned, so it will be. Who can thwart him?

Lord, I can fix my eyes on you and trust. You are sovereign, mighty, trustworthy and faithful. Your purposes will always prevail.
