Light in the Darkness Days 9-11: Some Verses to Ponder

I realize that I have gotten behind in my original 24 day plan.  So, I thought we’d play “catch-up” today with some scripture passages from Isaiah to ponder.  God promised to rescue His people, even in the midst of His anger at their rebellion.  Time and time again we see that God cannot abandon His people.  God will not abandon us, no matter how dark the road we walk may seem.  God is there in the midst of the darkness.  But sometimes, like the ancient Israelites, we are blind and deaf to Him.

Today, read through these verses proclaiming God’s rescue and salvation.  Pray that you will see the Light of God today.  Pray that you can BE the Light of God for someone today.

Blessings and Peace,


There is good news
    for the city of Zion.
Shout it as loud as you can
    from the highest mountain.
Don’t be afraid to shout
to the towns of Judah,
    “Your God is here!”

 Look! The powerful Lord God
is coming
to rule
    with his mighty arm.
He brings with him
what he has taken in war,
    and he rewards his people.
 The Lord cares for his nation,
just as shepherds care
    for their flocks.
He carries the lambs
    in his arms,
while gently leading
    the mother sheep.  Isaiah 40: 9-11

When the poor and needy
are dying of thirst
    and cannot find water,
I, the Lord God of Israel,
will come to their rescue.
    I won’t forget them.

 I will make rivers flow
    on mountain peaks.
I will send streams
    to fill the valleys.
Dry and barren land
will flow with springs
    and become a lake.
 I will fill the desert
    with all kinds of trees—
cedars, acacias, and myrtles;
olive and cypress trees;
    fir trees and pines.

 Everyone will see this
    and know that I,
the holy Lord God of Israel,
    created it all.  Isaiah 41: 17-20

christmas star 4

Descendants of Jacob,
I, the Lord, created you
    and formed your nation.
Israel, don’t be afraid.
    I have rescued you.
I have called you by name;
    now you belong to me.

 When you cross deep rivers,
I will be with you,
    and you won’t drown.
When you walk through fire,
you won’t be burned
    or scorched by the flames.

 I am the Lord, your God,
the Holy One of Israel,
    the God who saves you.  Isaiah 43: 1-3
