Today you should read: Isaiah 21

In today’s reading, God pronounces judgment on Babylon.  This Persian city, as you know, is significant in many ways in Bible accounts and stories.  We read about the Tower of Babel in Genesis 11, Nebuchadnezzar’s reign in Kings and Daniel, the captivity of Israel, and more.  God promises to bring this kingdom to its knees and that He does.

Often evil seems to prevail – we witness this in others, the world around us, politics, wars, and more.  Evil seems to prevail – but God is just.  The wheels of God grind exceedingly slow sometimes – but God’s will always is done.

Maybe you’re living in a situation that seems unfair and you wonder if God sees and if He will act.  Maybe you’re the perpetrator – bringing pain on others and seem to be getting away with it.  Whatever the situation, God’s Will will be done.  You can take that to the bank.

Take a moment today and praise God for being all-powerful, all knowing, and all kind.  Praise Him for His fairness and follow-through.  Praise Him that He has redeemed you by the blood of Christ and made you part of His family.
