Summary: CALL TO ARMS

CALL TO ARMS

INTRODUCTION: ISAIAH 25 IS A PSALM OF PRAISE EXPRESSING GOD’S FAVOR FOR HIS FAITHFUL FOLLOWERS IN DIFFICULT CIRCUMSTANCES. THE SETTING OCCURS IN 701 B.C. WHEN KING SINNACHEB OF ASSYRIA WOULD ATTEMPT TO OCCUPY AND DESTROY JERUSALEM. HIS ATTEMPT FAILED BECAUSE AN ANGEL OF THE LORD SLEW THOUSANDS OF HIS ARMY DURING THE NIGHT. THE PSALMS STRESSES ENDURANCE UNDER ADVERSITY. THE JEWISH COMMUNITY RECITES THIS SCRIPTURE (AMIDAH) ON ROSH HASHANAH.

SPIRITUAL INSIGHT: ISAIAH 25:4 (NASB) FOR YOU HAVE BEEN A DEFENSE FOR THE HELPLESS, A DEFENSE FOR THE NEEDY IN HIS DISTRESS, A REFUGE FROM THE STORM, A SHADE FROM THE HEAT ; FOR THE BREATH OF THE RUTHLESS IS LIKE A RAIN STORM AGAINST A WALL.

PSALMS 5:11-12 (NKJV) BUT LET ALL THOSE REJOICE WHO PUT THEIR TRUST IN YOU; LET THEM EVER SHOUT FOR JOY, BECAUSE YOU DEFEND THEM; LET THOSE ALSO WHO LOVE YOUR NAME BE JOYFUL IN YOU. FOR YOU, O LORD, WILL BLESS THE RIGHTEOUS; WITH FAVOR, YOU WILL SURROUND HIM AS (WITH) A SHIELD.

SCRIPTURE OFTEN SPEAKS OF GOD BEING THE STRENGTH OF HIS PEOPLE. PSALMS 27:1 (NKJV) A PSALM OF DAVID. THE LORD IS MY LIGHT AND MY SALVATION; WHOM SHALL I FEAR? THE LORD IS THE STRENGTH OF MY LIFE; OF WHOM SHALL I BE AFRAID?

APPLICATION: PERHAPS YOU HAVE AN ADVERSE ISSUE IN YOUR LIFE. DO WHAT DAVID DID. POUR OUT YOU HEART AND PLACE IT INTO GOD’S HANDS!
