Isaiah 29:15

Woe to those who go to great depths

to hide their plans from the Lord,

who do their work in darkness and think,

"Who sees us? Who will know?"


One thing that is clear in our readings today is the fact that God is in charge! Here in Isaiah 29 we are reading about the time that Jerusalem is under siege by the Assyrian armies – and were it not for the intervention of God the city would have perished. Isaiah prophecies that what God desires to give Judah is a very blessed future, but that blessing is contingent upon making God the ruler of their hearts and making his name holy. In Ezekiel’s writings today God speaks directly to five nations and lets them know that their day of reckoning has come. God is in charge!

It is a tragic thing when a nation forgets its spiritual heritage and begins to trust in the promises and plans of man instead of trusting in God.

At the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia in 1787, Benjamin Franklin said, “I have lived, Sir, a long time, and the longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth—that God governs in the affairs of men. I therefore beg leave to move that henceforth prayers imploring the assistance of heaven and its blessings on our deliberations be held in this Assembly every morning....”

It is not new politicians or new laws that will save our nation. Our only hope is that people begin to turn their hearts to the Lord and once again live with the understanding that God is in charge – once again live the prayer that Jesus taught us to pray . .. Your kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven!
