Isaiah 26-30

July 3, 2015

Here’s how the study works: Read the chapters mentioned in the heading during the week and share any words, thoughts, verses that stood out to you. Having a week for several chapters creates the opportunity to revisit them and make additional comments as you feel inclined as well as make comments on other people’s insights.

10 thoughts on “Isaiah 26-30”

  1. 26:3 You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you.
    26:12 LORD, you establish peace for us; all that we have accomplished you have done for us.

    v.3 "whose thoughts are fixed on you" (NLT)

    Peace comes from turning our attention to God – know that He is good, loving and able. When we are convinced of these things we can trust God and have peace. We cannot establish peace for ourselves.

  3. 27:6 In days to come Jacob will take root, Israel will bud and blossom and fill all the world with fruit.

    This is an amazing prophesy given that Israel is currently ⅔ desert. If God's people had trusted God and followed his commandments would Israel have become more fertile?

  5. 28:21 The LORD will rise up as he did at Mount Perazim, he will rouse himself as in the Valley of Gibeon—to do his work, his strange work, and perform his task, his alien task.

    Judgement is God's strange work, his alien task. Allowing his people to experience devastation, war, etc. is not his normal work which is extending blessing and favour.

  7. 29:24 Those who are wayward in spirit will gain understanding; those who complain will accept instruction.”

    God can turn around those in error and those who are discontented. Nothing is too difficult for God. Humans can't do this on their own but God through discipline and intervention can turn people's attitudes around.

  9. 30:32 Every stroke the LORD lays on them with his punishing club will be to the music of timbrels and harps, as he fights them in battle with the blows of his arm.

    "Every blow GOD lands on them with his club is in time to the music of drums and pipes" (MSG). See also Psalm 149:6-9.

    There is throughout Scripture an interesting connection between singing and warfare (see also the story of Jehoshaphat in 2 Chronicles 20:22). Karl Faase recently twittered, "In a culture cynical, critical and dismissive of faith our most subversive act is to stand together in worship singing statements of faith."
