Sunday Bible Journal

Thanks for stopping bye this Sunday and spending sometime with me and The Word of God. Today I bring you bible verses from the Book of Isiah and Jeremiah prophets of the Bible.

Isaiah stands out with its often unidentified use of “my servant”; a strong emphasis lies on the texts dealing with him in Deutero-Isaiah which show his suffering. Jeremiah, on the other hand, uses this term also for a group of prophets and even for the Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar, but never for Jeremiah himself.

Surely God is my salvation; I will trust and not be afraid. The LORD, the LORD himself, is my strength and my defense; he has become my salvation.”

The first song in this passage (verses 1-2) is sung by an individual (the “you” addressed in verse 1 is singular, as are the pronouns in verses 1-2), offering thanksgiving for deliverance by the God who is “my salvation” (verse 2). Although the individual is not identified (could it be Isaiah, whose own name means “God is salvation”?), the end of the song hearkens back to the deliverance from Egypt, quoting Exodus 15:2: “The Lord God is my strength and my might; he has become my salvation” (verse 2b; cf. Psalm 118:14). The image is one of a great warrior, one who is strong enough to defeat even the armies of Pharaoh in order to free the people from slavery in Egypt. To anyone who is caught up in fear, this echo from the Exodus and all the events attending it is a reminder that earthly powers cannot defeat the power of God.

Book of Jeremiah :

16  Thus says the Lord:

“Stand by the roads, and look,

and ask for gthe ancient paths,

where the good way is; and walk in it,

hand find rest for your souls.

But they said, ‘We will not walk in it.’

rest for your souls;
there is rest and peace enjoyed in the ways of God, and in the ordinances of the Gospel;

This Sunday rest and know your strength comes from God as he defense you from all enemies great or small > Lisa
