Today’s passage: Isaiah 26
- “In that day” again refers to the end times. This is either a song of remembrance of what the Lord has done, which will be sung in the day of the New Heavens, New Earth, and New Jerusalem. Or, it will be sung in Judah, during the millennial kingdom, prior to the final judgment. (Either way…good lyrics!)
- Beholding the zeal and glory of the Lord results in a heart that seeks/desires to know God even more, which results in a heart that desires to honor and obey Him. (2 Corinthians 3:18)
Questions to consider:
- How does verse 12 agree with Ephesians 2:8-9? By whose righteous works are we counted as being righteous?
- How do you know that you trust something? When is your trust proven, during times of ease or times of testing/distress? Do you trust God?
- Why does it make sense to trust in God alone (Verse 4)? Why do we place our trust elsewhere in the heat of the moment? What is revealed about our hearts/affections/thinking/desires when we place our trust elsewhere?
