From Psalm 17

Lord keep me as the apple of Your eye

Hide me in the shadow of Your wings

Turn Your ear toward me and hear my humble prayer

I call on You,  You always answer me

You are faithful and true

You are the One who makes all things new

You are holy and You are bright

You are life and You are light

From Isaiah chapter 54

Burst into song, you who never were in labour

Oh precious ones of infinite worth

The Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer

He's the God of all the earth

No weapon formed against you shall ever prosper

No accusation left to stand

This is the inheritance of those who serve His scepter

By Him we will possess the land

Woah Amen

Woah Amen

You are worthy, worthy of all praise

Woah Amen.

You are brighter , brighter than the sun

Woah Amen

You are righteous Holy One

Woah Amen

Woah Amen

Woah Amen

The book of Isaiah chapter 66 verses 1 - 2 says this;

This is what the Lord says: “Heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool.

Where is the house you will build for me? Where will my resting place be?

Has not my hand made all these things, and so they came into being?” declares the Lord.

“These are the ones I look on with favor: those who are humble and contrite in spirit, and who tremble at my word.

In this verse, the prophet Isaiah relays the words of the Lord to those who would follow God.

The Lord declares that Heaven is His throne, the headquarters of His kingdom and that the earth is His footstool or the place that the soles of His feet touch that he claims in keeping with the principle laid down in Duetronomy chapter 11 verse 24 which says;

Every place where you set your foot will be yours: Your territory will extend from the desert to Lebanon, and from the Euphrates River to the Mediterranean Sea.

The Lord then asks where would the abode be that the hands of men would build for Him. Is not the Lord the one who made all things? He is telling inhabitants of the earth not to preoccupy themselves with tying to seek favour with Him by building shelters and resting places for Him.

The Lord succinctly informs us that to gain favor with Him, we must be humble and contrite in spirit before Him and that our response to His word must be reverence and unconditional obedience.

Psalm chapter 99 verses 4 - 5 says this;

The King is mighty, he loves justice— you have established equity; in Jacob you have done what is just and right.

Exalt the Lord our God and worship at his footstool; he is holy.

The psalmist, in this passage, speaks of the power of the Lord and states that the Lord loves justice. As such, as King, the Lord establishes equity, fairness and righteousness in His kingdom.

Indeed the foundation of the kingdom of God is righteousness and justice as explained in Psalm 89 verse 14;

Righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne;   love and faithfulness go before you.

The great gift of righteousness that the Lord has made available to us through the Lord Jesus Christ when He took our sins on the cross, makes us eligible to be part of the righteous kingdom of God.

The book of 1 Peter chapter 2 verse 24 says it this way;

 “He himself bore our sins” in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness;

And as the book of  Mathew chapter 5 verse 20 then says in the words of Jesus;

 For I tell you that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the Pharisees and the teachers of the law, you will certainly not enter the kingdom of heaven.

The righteousness that we gain from believing in Christ's finished work on the cross, exceeds that of the religious leaders and teachers of the law (who were themselves assidous in following the letter of law) and thus we  are made eligible to be citizens of the kingdom of heaven.

Isaiah chapter 56 verse 13 57 verse 1 says this;

The righteous perish, and no one takes it to heart; the devout are taken away, and no one understands that the righteous are taken away to be spared from evil.

When righteous people die, no one ponders why they have been removed from the world.

What people do not comprehend is that good people are removed to exclude them from the evil day.

In death, they repose in tranquility as verse two of Isaiah chapter 57 says;

Those who walk uprightly enter into peace; they find rest as they lie in death.

This verse advices us that when we see the righteous pass into death, we should take notice for they may be harbingers of an approaching  day of evil.

Isaiah chapter 57 verse 13 says this;

When you cry out for help, let your collection of idols save you!

The wind will carry all of them off, a mere breath will blow them away.

But whoever takes refuge in me will inherit the land and possess my holy mountain.”

The Lord, in this verse, contrasts those who turn to idols with those who take refuge in Him.

The Lord emphasizes the futility of attending to idols for when the day of trouble comes, those who call on their progression of idols and rely on them for help, would find themselves without aid because the idols would be dispersed by the wind and a mere breath would blow them away.

However, those who take refuge in the Lord would inherit the territory and have a portion in the kingdom of God.

Proverbs chapter 23 verse 20 says this;

Walk with the wise and become wise, for a companion of fools suffers harm.

This verse reveals the way that the Lord will give wisdom to anyone who asks as promised in James chapter 1 verse 5 which says;

If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.

If we request wisdom from the Lord, He can bring a companion alongside us who carries the wisdom of the Lord into the situation in our lives and by induction, we gain wisdom.

We are given the hallmarks by which to recognize from where the wisdom is sourced in James chapter 3 verses 17 - 18 which says;

But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere. Peacemakers who sow in peace reap a harvest of righteousness

 On the other hand, the wisdom that is dispensed from sources other than heaven yield different results. James chapter 3 verses 14 - 16, says this;

But if you harbor bitter envy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast about it or deny the truth. Such “wisdom” does not come down from heaven but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic. For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice.

If we entwine our lives with fools, we will be influenced by wisdom which is earthly, unspiritual and demonic.

We will then suffer harm from the chaotic and evil environment that is generated from it.

Let us pray for the Lord's wisdom.
