BSF Study Questions Isaiah Lesson 13, Day 5 Isaiah 33

Summary of passage:  Woe to Assyria for they will be destroyed when they stop destroying.  Lord, be our strength every morning, our salvation in times of distress.  He fills Zion with righteousness and is the foundation, salvation, wisdom, and knowledge.  When the land is brought low, He will arise and be lifted up. The sinners are terrified but the righteous will dwell on the heights and be supplied with bread and water.  The righteous will see the king in his beauty and no longer think on evil people.  Zion and Jerusalem will be at peace.  There the Lord will be our Mighty One and will save us and forgive our sins.

Questions:

13) 33:1  The evildoers will have their day

33:2-4  Pray Verse 2:  O Lord, be gracious to us; we long for you.  Be our strength every morning, our salvation in times of distress

33:5-6  He is my foundation, salvation, wisdom, and knowledge for my times

33:7-12  When everything is bad, He will arise and He remains

33:13-16  If we walk righteously (God’s path), we will prosper and have no wants

33:17-19  These Earthly troubles are transitory.  Nothing on Earth matters for we will see God

33:20-24  Zion is ever-lasting.  The Lord is my Mighty One and He will save me and forgive my sins

Conclusions:  Finally, a passage full of hope and words of encouragement from Isaiah.  When we are distressed (misfortune or in a painful situation), God is there.  He knows and He will help.  I got a new prayer every morning in Verse 2:  Be our strength every morning, our salvation in time of distress.  We all have hard times and frequently we forget God is still walking with us because we are so consumed with the moment and overwhelmed at times by the pain.  He will take care of us no matter what.  We just have to remember that.
