Tuesday

Read Isaiah 50:4-9a

4The Sovereign Lord has taught me what to say,
so that I can strengthen the weary.
Every morning he makes me eager
to hear what he is going to teach me.
5The Lord has given me understanding,
and I have not rebelled
or turned away from him.
6I bared my back to those who beat me.
I did not stop them when they insulted me,
when they pulled out the hairs of my beard
and spat in my face.
7But their insults cannot hurt me
because the Sovereign Lord gives me help.
I brace myself to endure them.
I know that I will not be disgraced,
8for God is near,
and he will prove me innocent.
Does anyone dare to bring charges against me?
Let us go to court together!
Let him bring his accusation!
9The Sovereign Lord himself defends me—
who, then, can prove me guilty?
All my accusers will disappear;
they will vanish like moth-eaten cloth.

Think

Jesus persecution and crucifixion as an innocent victim is foreseen in Isaiah 50 - also the hope that he has:  "I know I will not be disgraced, for God is near, and he will prove me innocent." - Isaiah 50:7-8

Pray

In verse 4 we read:  "The Sovereign LORD has taught me what to say, so that I can strengthen the weary."
Lord - speak to me and strengthen me when I am weary.
