“I, even I, am He Who comforts you. Who are you, that you should be afraid of man, who shall die, and of a son of man, who shall be made [as destructible] as grass, that you should forget the Lord your Maker, Who stretched forth the heavens and laid the foundations of the earth, and fear continually every day because of the fury of the oppressor, when he makes ready to destroy or even though he did so? And where is the fury of the oppressor?” Isaiah 51:12-13 ->me: I love the possessive nouns Isaiah uses – ‘your Maker’. This passage carries through from the last few days of quiet times: That I should not fear, that God is my comforter, God is all that I need, in Him can I trust, and when I know Him I can stand tall. To forget Him – to live without consciously holding in mind and memory Who He is, what He has done, and what He promises – is to live in defeat and disobedience.
