We pray that these devotions have meaning to you and help you to walk the walk of faith every day.
We Forget; God Remembers
Read Isaiah 14:1 through 18:7
Forgetting things causes problems. People who forget where they put their car keys will be late for an appointment. Those who forget a birthday or anniversary will find their relationship with the other person suffers. Those who forget God will find things will not go well in the long run.
You have forgotten God your Savior; you have not remembered the Rock, your fortress (Isaiah 17:10).
In this section, Isaiah predicted several gloom-and-doom scenarios for the nations who chose not to honor God—who forgot God. These nations had historically bullied God’s people and were sometimes unwittingly God’s instrument to bring His people back to Him.
But God remembered His own, promising to show compassion to them and turn the tables on the nations that had been the oppressors: “The Lord will have compassion on Jacob; once again he will choose Israel and will settle them in their own land” (Isaiah 14:1).
God always remembers us and waits for us to remember Him.
Prayer Suggestion: Lord, I want to remember You in all things.
Quicklook: Isaiah 17:7–14
Devotional brought to you by God's Word For Today.
God's Word For Today is available from Gospel Publishing House.
Prayer is our link with God, an awesome avenue through which we can express praise and adoration to Him for His goodness, love, and mercy; and an avenue through which we can voice our petitions and concerns. God's Word assures us that we can "come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need" (Hebrews 4:16).
Prayer also moves the hand of God on behalf of needs and circumstances in our church, our families, our community, nation, and world. Take time to pray and intercede for these areas as God leads you. Become part of a prayer group and intercede with others in times of corporate prayer. As you seek God's help, expect reports of great victory to follow as God answers prayer.
