Hope for today: None like the Lord

HopeThus says the Lord, the King of Israel and his Redeemer, the Lord of hosts: “I am the first and I am the last; besides me there is no god.
Who is like me? Let him proclaim it. Let him declare and set it before me, since I appointed an ancient people. Let them declare what is to come, and what will happen.
Fear not, nor be afraid;
have I not told you from of old and declared it?

And you are my witnesses!

Is there a God besides me?
There is no Rock; I know not any.”
Isaiah 44:6-8

The Lord is my Strength and my Song

Isaiah 12.2

You will say in that day:
“I will give thanks to You, O Lord,
    for though You were angry with me,
Your anger turned away,
    that You might comfort me.

“Behold, God is my salvation;
    I will trust, and will not be afraid;
for the Lord God is my strength and my song,
    and He has become my salvation.”

With joy You will draw water from the wells of salvation. And You will say in that day:

“Give thanks to the Lord, call upon His name,
make known His deeds among the peoples, proclaim that His name is exalted.

“Sing praises to the Lord, for He has done gloriously;
    let this be made known in all the earth.
Shout, and sing for joy, O inhabitant of Zion,
    for great in your midst is the Holy One of Israel.”

 

Isaiah 12.3
