Old Testament Reading - Trust in the Lord for ever


3 He will keep in perfect peace all those who trust in him, whose thoughts often turn to the Lord! 4 Trust in the Lord God always, for in the Lord Jehovah is your everlasting strength. 5 He humbles the proud and brings the haughty city to the dust; its walls come crashing down. 6 He presents it to the poor and needy for their use.

7But for good men the path is not uphill and rough! God does not give them a rough and treacherous path, but smooths the road before them. 8 Oh Lord, we love to do your will! Our hearts' desire is to glorify your name. 9 All night long I search for you; earnestly I seek for God; for only when you come in judgment on the earth to punish it will people turn away from wickedness and do what is right.

. . . . Isaiah 26:3-9


Our Father, hallowed be your name,
on earth as in heaven.

May our Lord Jesus Christ himself,
and God our Father,
who loved us and graciously gave us
unfailing encouragement and good hope,
comfort our hearts
and establish them
in every good word and deed.
