In righteousness you shall be established; you shall be far from oppression, for you shall not fear; and from terror, for it shall not come near you. (Isaiah 54:14, ESV)
Tyranny: “absolute power over another, especially when exercised unjustly or cruelly.” In Isaiah, we are promised a life where that kind of rule is non-existent. No terror. No fear. Those things we overcame when we left England and established a free country. There are others that don’t know such freedom. Is this a promise for them as well? Is this a promise for our spiritual life, to be free from the unjust cruelty of the ruler of this world trying to enslave us in sin? You bet! Claim the verse for yourself and then strive to provide that freedom for others.
Prayer: Lord, when I trust in you, there is nothing to fear.
