Here are our weekend readings along with my selected focus verses that highlight God’s providence and the peace He gives to His own.
Saturday, July 30 Isaiah 18-22
Seeing God’s Wise Providence
“In that day you looked to the weapons of the House of the Forest, and you saw that the breaches of the city of David were many. You collected the waters of the lower pool, and you counted the houses of Jerusalem, and you broke down the houses to fortify the wall. You made a reservoir between the two walls for the water of the old pool. But you did not look to him who did it, or see him who planned it long ago.” Isaiah 22:8b-11 (ESV)
Sunday, July 31 Isaiah 23-27
“Open the gates,
that the righteous nation that keeps faith may enter in.
You keep him in perfect peace
whose mind is stayed on you,
because he trusts in you.
Trust in the Lord forever,
for the Lord God is an everlasting rock.” Isaiah 26:2-4 (ESV)
Have a great weekend. Enjoy worship with God’s people. On Monday, I will post our readings for August as Mary and I take the month for vacation and family time.
