Isaiah 26:1-15

Isaiah 26 begins: “In that day this song will be sung.” It is a song of praise to God for deliverance of the beleaguered people of Judah. They had been brought low and oppressed by their enemies because of their unfaithfulness to God. Isaiah saw beyond their devastation a time of restoration. The city once in rubble would be rebuilt, and the righteous would return on smooth and level paths. This vision was apparent to “those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you” (Isaiah 26:3), but those who cling to wickedness are blind to the glory of this wonderful salvation: “LORD, your hand is lifted high, but they do not see it” (v. 11). Remarkably, it was fulfilled just as the prophet foretold.

We look forward to a city, “the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem” (Hebrews 12:22). By faith we may join in the song: “We have a strong city; God makes salvation its walls and ramparts” (Isaiah 26:1). Let’s pray that all eyes will be open and every voice ready to sing “on that day.”

    As Isaiah saw beyond their devastation a time of restoration. We too must see beyond on our circumstances and keep our eye on Jesus. This is no coincident that this morning I had this very scripture in my mind. Isaiah 26:3-4. KJV. Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee. v.4 Trust ye in the Lord for ever: for in the Lord Jehovah is everlasting strength.
    When we set our eyes on our circumstances, fear would like to sneak in to our minds and life. BUT NO!!!! SHUT THE DOOR ON FEAR!! FOR ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE WITH GOD. MY PEACE IS IN CHRIST JESUS AND I BELIEVE THAT HE WILL MAKE A WAY WHERE THERE SEEMS TO BE NO WAY.
