Isaiah 63: 7-9

I will tell of the kindness of the Lord, the deeds for which he is to be praised, according to all the Lord has done for us–yes, the many good things he has done for the house of Israel, according to his compassion and many kindnesses. He said, “Surely they are my people, sons who will not be false to me”; and so he became their Savior. In all their distress he too was distressed, and the angel of the presence saved them. In his love and mercy he redeemed them; he lifted them up and carried them all the days of old.

A Thought

Isaiah speaks of God’s mercy toward Israel trying to get them to invite the presence of the Lord to redeem them as in the days of old when God showed them his love, mercy and fought their battles for them. Most of Israel had sinned against God, but God will never gave up on them completely. Their Savior will return to earth, bring judgement on their enemies and redeem his faithful ones.

Our Prayer

Father we have all sinned against you. Help us to declare of your great love and mercy that you have shown to us through your Son, our Redeemer. Thank you for your compassion and kindness toward you children. You alone are worthy of praise. Thank you in Jesus’ name, amen.
