Isaiah 18:7 KJV
In that time shall the present be brought unto the Lord of hosts of a people scattered and peeled, and from a people terrible from their beginning hitherto; a nation meted out and trodden under foot, whose land the rivers have spoiled, to the place of the name of the Lord of hosts, the mount Zion.
Where does help usually come from when you need it most? Though most people would easily say, “it comes from the Lord,” just a few truly believe this and attribute their resulting successes to the Lord.
In the Prophet Isaiah’s time, Israel, like some other nations around them do, sent ambassadors to stronger nations for help, but this didn’t go down well with the Lord. So this is what the Lord promised to do: To sit quietly and observe all that was happening… Yet He knew what would happen in the end.
The same nations that all the people run to for help (including Israel), will come to Him the Lord of Hosts to pay tribute, to bring a present.
Wow, how about that move? What a way to let the world know where true power resides!
You may not be chasing some other power for help, but know for a certainty that whoever or whatever you are courting, with intentions of bailing you out in the near future also has a master, and that master is the Lord of Hosts. Take your issues to Him instead, than the running around in circles, you may be wasting your own time.
Have a blessed day.
