November 5, 2018 – Isaiah 25:8

He will swallow up death forever! The Sovereign Lord will wipe away all tears. He will remove forever all insults and mockery against his land and people. The Lord has spoken!  Isaiah 25:8.

Each morning when I awaken, I am reminded anew of your goodness.  Tears of joy renew my praise in all You do, Oh, Lord.  I live each day the wonderful things You planned for me long ago.  There is no end to your faithful love for me.  

When I see tall buildings man has planned and built, I remember You are a tower of refuge to the poor, to the needy in distress, and a shelter in the storms of life.  There is no end to your goodness.

The delightful banquet of your Word each day removes the cloud of doom, even when a loved one dies.  When death comes I remember, it is You who wipes away all my tears. When Jesus rose from the dead and returned to our Father God in Heaven, I am filled with an everlasting hope and peace.  I will trust only in Him.

It is written, There He will remove the cloud of gloom, the shadow of death that hangs over the earth.  Isaiah 25.7.  

I Corinthians 15:53-55.   For our dying bodies must be transformed into bodies that will never die; our mortal bodies must be transformed into immortal bodies. Then, when our dying bodies have been transformed into bodies that will never die, this Scripture will be fulfilled: “Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is your victory?  O death, where is your sting?”  

In that day the people will proclaim, “This is our God! We trusted in Him, and He saved us! This is the Lord, in whom we trusted. Let us rejoice in the salvation He brings!”  Isaiah 25:9.
