OUR FATHER WHO SHATTERED THE KINGDOM OF DARKNESS
Isaiah chapter (29x) 30 verse 31 says this;
The voice of the Lord will shatter Assyria; with his rod he will strike them down.
Assyria, a power that brought oppression to God's people, will be blown apart by the voice of the Lord. With the power of the Lord's authoritative decree, the Assyrian kingdom will be torn down and repeated blows of judgement against Assyria will be to the music of timbrels and harps as people celebrate the Lord's victory.
Isaiah 30 verse 15 says this;
“In repentance and rest is your salvation, in quietness and trust is your strength,
The salvation of God's people is rooted in repentance and rest. They gain their strength in quietness and trust but some of God's people will react to oppression by trying to fight in their own strength and when they fail, they will cry to the Lord and the Lord will have compassion and restore them and bind up their wounds.
Bless the Lord who will care for His people and will, by His might and power, completely disassemble the power structures of darkness.
