• The LORD’s Glorious Branch Devotional

    Isaiah 4:2-6

    When we come to the New Testament, we find that the unexpected—from our perspective—has happened. The latter days of judgment and blessing have been extended for many years, with the Lord’s blessing being emphasized through the preaching of the gospel and the conversion of the nations. That does not mean, however, that the final day of judgment is not coming. Are you clothed in the righteousness of Christ and thus prepared to meet God on that day? View Resource

  • The Latter Days Devotional

    Isaiah 2:1-5

    Today’s passage is ultimately fulfilled in Christ, the temple of God who is exalted over all the nations (Mark 14:58; John 2:13–22). How much of this Isaiah clearly understood is hard to say, but he knew for sure that his vision meant the exaltation of Israel and that the world would know Yahweh is the one true God. The Lord showed this to him in a way His ancient people could understand, for God speaks our language when He reveals Himself. Let us thank Him for that. View Resource

  • Reasoning with the LORD Devotional

    Isaiah 1:18–31

    Isaiah 1:18 is a great promise indeed, assuring us that no matter how much sin has stained our souls, God can cleanse us completely and make us stand before Him as His holy people. But for this to happen, we must repent. We must agree with the Lord’s evaluation of sin in our lives—that it deserves His wrath—and then we must renounce it, asking for God’s pardon and strength that we might resist temptation. We do this not just once but every day of our lives. View Resource

  • The Vision of Isaiah Devotional

    Isaiah 1:1–17

    God often causes His people to prosper materially, so we may enjoy the fruit of our godly labors. However, material abundance can be dangerous because, if we are not careful, we can forget the Source of all blessings and trust in the blessings themselves. That is why it is so important to cultivate an attitude of thankfulness, remembering that the Lord gives and the Lord takes away (Job 1:21b). No matter our level of prosperity, may we not forget that every good gift comes from Him. View Resource

  • Hezekiah’s Foolish Decision Devotional

    2 Kings 20:12-21

    Hezekiah’s rather selfish response to Isaiah’s prophecy about the fall of his sons shows how even those who follow God still fall into sin (2 Kings 20:19). One of the sins with which we commonly struggle is the temptation not to trust in the Lord but in our own talents or alliances with others. Where do you find it difficult to trust God? Ask Him to help you believe Him and act according to the promises in His Word. View Resource

  • Egypt Redeemed Devotional

    Isaiah 19:16–25

    Christ inaugurated the kingdom in His ministry, death, and resurrection, and now He rules to bring people from all nations into His kingdom as these earthly realms belong to Him. Augustine of Hippo comments, “The nations are Christ’s inheritance, and the ends of the earth are His possession.” We are to make this reality manifest as we share the gospel, fund missionary work, and strive to make the invisible kingdom of God visible in its fullness.

  • The Heavenly Host Devotional

    Revelation 4

    What is the highest calling of the Christian? The continual praise of God by the angels in heaven is one of the many depictions in the Bible that emphasize the importance of worship. Praising our Creator in heaven is the highest duty for the believer; indeed, we are exhorted to worship the Lord in all that we do (1 Cor. 10:31). And we should look forward to corporate worship each Sunday, for it is there that we glorify God in the presence of His people and the angels. View Resource
