Devotion Day 50 - Through the Bible in 90 days

Day 50 – Isaiah 14 – 28 – Throughout our reading today, I find myself thinking about how God’s people misplaced their trust, their faith, by trusting in, having faith in other nations or foreign gods or even in themselves and what they had done. In our reading today, we hear how nation after nation will be destroyed. All that the people had falsely trusted in pass away.

So it is with us my friends. If we place our trust, our faith in nations, people, things all these things will pass away. In the end all that will be left is God. So, why not put our faith and trust in God who will never pass away.

Within our reading today, there was a hopeful promise made, a promise which I believe God has kept in the sending of his son. (Isaiah 25:6-8) The mountain is Mount Zion, the mountain of God.

On this mountain the Lord Almighty will prepare
a feast of rich food for all peoples,
a banquet of aged wine—
the best of meats and the finest of wines.
On this mountain he will destroy
the shroud that enfolds all peoples,
the sheet that covers all nations;
    he will swallow up death forever.
The Sovereign Lord will wipe away the tears
from all faces;
he will remove the disgrace of his people
from all the earth.
The Lord has spoken.

May we trust in the one who promised this, has done it and continues to do it even this day.

O God, I know I place my trust, my faith in things or people of this world. All these things or people will one day pass away or fail me. I know that, yet I put my faith in things of this world. Through the readings in your word, I know that you are the One in whom I am to place my trust, my faith and as I do you will be faithful in keeping all our promises unto me. Forgive me of my misplaced trust and faith. Throughout this day may I seek to trust you, put all my faith in you who was, who is and who will always be. Amen.
