ISAIAH 26

Beneath Your discipline

I search for You,

begging for help,

whispering a prayer (Isa 26:16)

 

I, who thought myself high and mighty

You bring down and humble.

To the ground, in the dust

You have cast me down. (Isa 26:5)

 

I thrashed in labor but bore no baby.

I gave birth to wind; I won no victory

I did not give salvation to the earth—

no deliverance from my efforts. (Isa 26:17,18)

 

CHORUS:

You keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You,

So I commit to You—lean on You—trust in You. (Isa 26:3)

O LORD my GOD, other lords besides You have ruled over me,

but Your name alone I now bring to remembrance. (Isa 26:13)

 

In the path of Your judgments, O LORD,

I wait for You;

Your name and remembrance

are the desires of my soul. (Isa 26:8)

 

All I have and am O LORD,

comes from You.

You ordain peace for me—

favor and blessings. (Isa 26:12)

 

My soul yearns for You in the night;

my spirit within me earnestly seeks You.

For when Your judgments are in the earth,

I learn righteousness. (Isa 26:9)

HYMN OF TRIUMPH IN JESUS

“If God is on our side,

What matters who is against us?

He who spared not His own Son,

But surrendered Him to suffering for us all,

 

“How can He but, in giving Him,

lavish on us all things—all?

Who shall dare arraign God’s chosen ones?

God saith I am righteous—who dares condemn me to death?

 

“There is one who has died for me–our Messiah Jesus!

Died?—nay, He has risen from the dead:

He is throned at God’s right hand:

Yea, He is now interceding for me” (ref#38, p129, [Rom 8:31-34])!

HYMN OF INCARNATION

“He, even when he subsisted in the form of God,

Did not…cling to His prerogative of equality with God:

Nay, tenantless of all that glory,

He assumed the form of a bondslave,

 

“And appeared in the likeness of man.

So was He found on earth as a man in outward seeming,

And abased Himself in rendering submission,

even to the death—A death upon the Cross!

 

“Because He stooped so low, God uplifted Him very high,

And hath freely given Him The Name—

The Name that is above every name, decreeing

‘In the name of Jesus shall every knee bend in prayer,

 

“Alike of dwellers in heaven, on earth, in the underworld,

And every tongue shall utter this confession,

‘Jesus the Messiah is Lord!’

So rendering glory to God the Father’” Arthur S. Way (ref#38, p155-156 [Phil 2:6-11]).

JESUS Is LORD

You sent Your Son into the world

so that I might live through Him (1 John 4:9).

All Your promises in Him are Yes,

and in Him Amen, to Your glory (2 Cor 1:20).

 

He is perfectly adapted to my needs

—holy, blameless, unstained by sin,

separated from sinners, and

exalted higher than the heavens (Heb 7:25,26).

 

My LORD JESUS CHRIST, the Messiah,

yielded Himself up to atone for my sin

and to save and sanctify me—

to rescue and deliver me from this present age (Gal 1:3-4).

 

In Him I was made Your heritage

and I obtained an inheritance (Eph 1:11).

In accordance with Your will and

purpose and plan, my FATHER (Gal 1:4).

KING DAVID’S PROPHECIES OF CHRIST’S PASSION

You, FATHER, “…took me (JESUS) from the womb;

you made me trust you at my mother’s breasts.

On you was I cast from my birth,

and from my mother’s womb you have been my God” (Ps 22:9-10 ESV).

 

“Be not far from me, for trouble is near,

and there is none to help.

I am poured out like water,

and all my bones are out of joint;…” (Ps 22:11,14 ESV).

 

“…my heart is like wax;

it is melted within my breast;

my strength is dried up like a potsherd,

and my tongue sticks to my jaws;…” (Ps 22:14-15 ESV).

 

“…you lay me in the dust of death.

For dogs encompass me;

a company of evildoers encircles me;

they have pierced my hands and feet—“ (Ps 22:15-16 ESV).

 

“I can count all my bones—

they stare and gloat over me;

they divide my garments among them,

and for my clothing they cast lots” (Ps 22:17-18 ESV).

 

“But you, O Lord,

do not be far off!

O you my help,

come quickly to my aid” (Ps 22:19 ESV)!

FATHER, remind me anew that CHRIST was fully human in His flesh and vividly felt the pressure to rescue Himself out of danger, but instead deferred to You for help that He might be able to perform Your will in total, sinless, obedience.

ISAIAH 64

“Oh that you would rend the heavens and come down,

that the mountains might quake at your presence—

as when fire kindles brushwood

and the fire causes water to boil—” (Isa 64:1-2 ESV).

 

“From of old no one has heard

or perceived by the ear,

like the wind, take (me) away” (Isa 64:5-6 ESV).

 

But, “…O Lord, you are (my) Father;

(I am) the clay, and you are (my) potter;

(I am) …the work of your hand.

…Behold, please look,…” (Isa 64:8-9 ESV) draw me back to You.
