What Does It Mean for You?

What Does It Mean for You? Book Cover

And he will swallow up on this mountain the covering that is cast over all peoples, the veil that is spread over all nations. He will swallow up death forever; and the Lord God will wipe away tears from all faces, and the reproach of his people he will take away from all the earth, for the Lord has spoken (Isaiah 25:7–8).

As we actively respond to these Scriptures, the Spirit continues to cultivate our love for God and a longing to know his Word. In Isaiah, God promises his people a future in which he will permanently remove the reproach and devastating effects of sin. Nothing will separate us from fully enjoying his presence!

How does this passage motivate you to love God? To love those in your life?

REMEMBER. I can daily chose to remember the hope that is before us. I can remember the future we have in the promises of an unfailing God. I can praise him for his plan.

SEEK HIM AS COMFORTER. It’s often too natural to be so busy trying to put on a good show for our God that we don’t seek the Father-Comforter. We forget his character of One who desires to wipe away every tear.

Be faithful to my Lord Jesus. Even if things get tough “Since you have kept my command to endure patiently, I will also keep you from the hour of trial that is going to come on the whole world to test the inhabitants of the earth.”
‭‭Revelation‬ ‭3:10‬ ‭NIV‬‬

I can apply this to my life by remembering in my darkest times that God is going to wipe away all tears and he will remove the wickedness from the earth in the end. I have this to hope and yearn for when I am suffering.

I can look for the ways God is present in all things by continuously seeking Him even when it doesn’t look the way that I thought it would look. God swallowing up the covering and veil doesn’t seem like a good thing, but looking closer and how He also swallows up sin and wipes the tears from our faces, I see that it is Him that will be our covering and the removal of the veil means that we will have direct access to Him. In this scripture it is an exchange for Him supplying these needs and protection. It helps me to see that I can trust and depend on Him and encourages me to look for Him even in the days and situations that I can’t naturally see or feel His presence in my current circumstance.

I can look up – seek Him, remembering what God has promised us even on the tough days. His promise –
My word will never pass away (Matt 24:35).
By drawing close to God, being in his word and spend quiet time with Him. This will help me renew my strength
and guide my thoughts.
I also need to share with others God’s love, promise and faithfulness to us. Be a light to those struggling, comfort and pray with them.

Realizing what all God did and is doing in response to the great tragedy of our sin seperating us from the intimate fellowship he designed back in the Garden of Eden…now knowing “Nothing can seperate us from fully enjoying His presence”…..this really jumps out at me now/ the sheer bliss of what we have for certainty – fellowship with Him both here on earth and then in eternity- wow- this is more than I can absorb when I think about it…What a good GOD! It makes you want EVERYONE to KNOW Him like this!

I realized this morning when waking up that I was loving people based on how they "taught me" to love them. When that isn’t how God is loving me, He loves me unconditional, this is how I should love others, I need to be all in!

I can praise with a clearer focus on eternity…not swallowed up in the messiness of the here and now. I can praise sooner, more often and with a zeal that reminds my spirit that the troubles of today…are only for a season. I can love with more ease. I can forgive quicker…and I can savor the gift of the Holy Spirit available to guide me in the meantime.

Today the ache in my soul isn’t as heavy as it is for my dear friend who lost her husband to Covid this year. This passage gives me hope for me in my small aches right now… but huger hope for her as I come alongside her in her grief. It reminds me that TODAY i want to share more about the HOPE that I know is sure and true to whoever I have opportunity to talk with today.

I can express His promises by continuing to read His word and study it. Show others love and tell them about His unconditional love for them. I am glad that He will take away all the gloom and wickedness in this world.
