A Daily Devotion for Thursday, October 30


Isaiah 25:6-9


Verses 7-8: On this mountain he will destroy the shroud that enfolds all peoples, the sheet that covers all nations; he will swallow up death forever. The Sovereign Lord will wipe away the tears from all faces; he will remove the disgrace of his people from all the earth. The Lord has spoken.

Again, the details are impossible for me to decipher. It does seem clear God will (has) remove death as we know it, from our eternal futures. “He will swallow up death forever.” We no longer need to fear death, because God has ultimate power over death. He “will wipe away the tears from all faces…” God cares for us, and has promised us eternal life with him, through Christ.


Father God, you calm and reassure us with your Word. You are with us always, every minute, and will be with us through eternity. Thank-you, Lord. Amen

Isaiah 25:6-9 6. In Jerusalem, the Lord of heaven‘s armies will spread a wonderful feast for all the people of the world. It will be a delicious banquet with clear, well aged wine and choice meat. I have read this verse several times trying to understand it. Each time the same words speak to me – …all the people of the world… a delicious banquet. When we have communion, we have an open table (all people) and I hear the words delicious banquet in many of the communion songs we sing. “Come to the table, sinner and saint. The banquet is ready, come fill your plate.” This view of heaven is reassuring. All will be there and the plate I fil…

Isaiah 25:6-9

Verse. 9 It will be said on that day, Behold, this is our God; we have waited for him, that he might save us let us be glad and rejoice in his salvation. This particular verse is very comforting for all who read it. I believe God wants us to have the security that this verse implies. The basis for this security is knowing who we are in Christ having The faith that goes without saying. A sense of security is something everybody needs. When the lord speaks, he does what he says. I feel safe accepted and approved of, even though I have weaknesses and am not perfect. I pray that when God looks at me h…

Isaiah 25:9 - “It will be said on that day, ‘Behold, this is our God; we have waited for him, that he might save us. This is the LORD; we have waited for him; let us be glad and rejoice in his salvation.’”


The prophet’s description of the ultimate defeat of the enemies of God foreshadows our current situation regarding the kingdom of God - “now and not yet,” Jesus ushered in the kingdom of God and opened the door to heaven for sinful humankind. Our charge as Christians is to point as many to that door, acting as Jesus’ messengers in our words and deeds during our own wait to enter ourselves.


Prayer - God of heaven and earth,…

Isiah 25:6-9 8 he will swallow up death forever. The Sovereign Lord will wipe away the tears from all faces;


God is guaranteeing that there will be no death and by wiping tears from all faces He is saying that we are all included in this promise. It isn’t mentioned here but we know that there is a condition, and that is that we must believe.


Dear Lord you have made it so easy for us to have everlasting life. All we have to do is believe in You as our Savior. Thank you. Amen.

Isaiah 25: 6-9

6 On this mountain the Lord Almighty will prepare a feast of rich food for all peoples, a banquet of aged wine—the best of meats and the finest of wines.


When we gather in difficult time, we find it difficult to see the goodness in life. When we gather around the communion rail to receive the body and blood of Jesus, it is a reminder of things to come. Reflecting on this verse, I imagine how heaven will be. A wonderful place where all the pain and suffering we experience on earth will disappear and we will have fellowship with God for eternity.


Dearest Lord, thank you for these reminders of what is to come. When lif…
