Thoughts from Isaiah 32

Isaiah 32:2 Each man will be like a shelter from the wind and a refuge from the storm, like streams of water in the desert and the shadow of a great rock in a thirsty land.

I don't know what time period this describes, it depends a lot on your view of the end times in scripture. Regardless of whether it is on heaven or on earth, during the millinium or whenever, think of it in terms of your own life as a believer... this is a description of us! Are you a shelter and refuge from the storm for your family, for your fellow believers? Does this describe your home? Are you a stream of water in the desert and a shade in the blistering heat of the world? Something to think about.

Isaiah 32:17 The fruit of righteousness will be peace; the effect of righteousness will be quietness and confidence forever.

I don't know about you, but peace, quietness and confidence are things I crave. They come from righteousness. Perfect righteousness is mine through Christ, the ability to live a more and more righteous life come through the endwelling Holy Spirit, and I have both of those things. So I think that mean that peace, quietness, and confidence will become more and more a part of my life. That's something to look forward to.
