Walls and bulwarks…

For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have hope. Romans

Comments, thoughts and reflections welcome.

Isaiah 26:1-11

  In that day this song will be sung in the land of Judah: “We have a strong city; he sets up salvation as walls and bulwarks.

 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.

 For he has humbled the inhabitants of the height, the lofty city. He lays it low, lays it low to the ground, casts it to the dust.

 The foot tramples it, the feet of the poor, the steps of the needy.”

 The path of the righteous is level; you make level the way of the righteous.

  In the path of your judgments, O LORD, we wait for you; your name and remembrance are the desire of our soul.

 My soul yearns for you in the night; my spirit within me earnestly seeks you. For when your judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world learn righteousness.

  If favor is shown to the wicked, he does not learn righteousness; in the land of uprightness he deals corruptly and does not see the majesty of the LORD.

O LORD, your hand is lifted up, but they do not see it. Let them see your zeal for your people, and be ashamed. Let the fire for your adversaries consume them.

Salvation is described as walls and bulwarks. They provide protection and safety.  Our faith in Christ gives us protection and safety from the enemy of our soul.  We have peace for our mind is resting in Him, our God, full of His word which is truth.  He makes our way level – it is right and righteousness through salvation.  He judges fairly, and we rest in our relationship with Him through Jesus Christ.  We seek; we find.  We see the works of God with the eyes of our spirit.

Salvation is the beginning of our relationship with God made possible by the cross.  This is a love relationship in which we receive, then share and live.  It takes us through life’s mountains and valleys alike, leveling out spirit’s response in peace.
