Daily Bible Reading: Isaiah 10 - 12
Verse of the Day: Isaiah 10:16 – “Therefore will the Lord, Jehovah of hosts, send among his fat ones leanness; and under his glory there shall be kindled a burning like the burning of fire.”
Jehovah tsebâ'âh. God of hosts. The Hebrew word denotes and army. It comes from a root word that means to fight or to serve. Angels are called “hosts” because they serve God. The whole of Heaven serves God and is referred to as “hosts.”
In the New Testament, Paul in Romans 9:29, and James in James 5:4 refer to “the Lord of Sabaoth” to describe the awesome might of God. As believers, we can count on the mighty God, Jehovah tsebâ'âh, to fight the battles against the Evil One in our day and time.
Trust Him. Hold on to Him. Lean on Him. Let Him be our General and Guide.
Prayer: Jehovah tsebâ'âh, I come to You, I trust You, I rely on You, I hold out for You. I seek You to deliver me from the Evil. Amen.
