Daily Bible Reading: Isaiah 45 - 47
Verse of the Day: Isaiah 45:12 – “I have made the earth, and created man upon it: I, even my hands, have stretched out the heavens; and all their host have I commanded.”
In chapters 40 – 48 of Isaiah, the writer deals with the supremacy of God. We read of the many mighty attributes and actions of God, and that they surpass anything of man. In the reading of today, God speaks of what He is going to do to Babylon. This will bring comfort to the nation of Israel because of what Babylon had done to them. Declaring that He would judge Babylon, God makes the statement above to remind His people of His Omnipotence (All-Power). Creating and controlling the Universe makes judging Babylon look insignificant. But, He does both.
Prayer: Omnipotent God of the Universe, when I seem to doubt Your Power and Ability to accomplish what You have promised, may I stop and look at Your Creation and see Your hand of power in it. Amen.
