Text: Isaiah 52:1-12.

When troubles like death come to us, we should compose ourselves and sit up knowing God is in control because He hears our cries and comes to our rescue and His messages should bring joy to our hearts. In any situation He is both at the back and in front (V 12).

Do you understand the tests which come to you? In cases of lack, failure, or death of a dear one, do you ask God to take control? Is there anything you would like to apply or claim from this text?

Almighty God, our Heavenly Father, be at my side, in front, and behind, in times of trouble. In the name of Jesus Christ I pray, Amen.
