This morning an interesting word from scripture    
for such a time as this....  
with the fears of the 1960s and 70s.   
knocking on my heart.  
Nuclear war....   

Israel was in a bind.   
worse than now.....?  
Slavery and exile.
Overrun by a powerful empire.
Isaiah pointed them back to God
their true saviour...
He tells them,
"In repentance and rest is your salvation
In quietness and trust is your strength.....
....but you would have none of it." ref 30:15

then he tells them to not trust in Egypt
who was a possible military alliance.
or to trust in horses
or in chariots
Look to the Holy one of Israel.
Jehovah God. ref 31:1

a message for our time
a message for 2 presidents
a message for me.

In repentance and rest.
In quietness and trust.

O Lord,
You've got the whole world...
in Your hands
yes You do.

I rest in that.
I rest in You.
