To read the Bible in a year, read Isaiah 13–15 on September 28, In the year of our Lord 2018

By Don Ruhl

Israel sinned relentlessly and foreign powers oppressed her for her sin, but neither of those would keep the Lord from keeping His promises toward Israel about how He would bless the world through Israel. Therefore, Isaiah wrote:

For the LORD will have mercy on Jacob, and will still choose Israel, and settle them in their own land. The strangers will be joined with them, and they will cling to the house of Jacob. Then people will take them and bring them to their place, and the house of Israel will possess them for servants and maids in the land of the LORD; they will take them captive whose captives they were, and rule over their oppressors (Isaiah 14.1–2).

The Lord never ceases to amaze us with His unstoppable love. Why does He insist on blessing man when we sin against Him so relentlessly?

  • When was the last time you thanked Him for being wonderful toward you?
