When I read these verses – it sounds like holy smack talk in my mind.
Twice – Isaiah told the enemies of God’s people…
“Strap on your armor…”
That’s right. Go ahead.
“Strap on your armor.”
“Go ahead,” he said, “and make plans.
Speak your threats and your taunts.
But it will all come to nothing.”
Because God was with them.
We must remember Who stands with us. When the enemy has strapped on every piece of armor. When he has made plans for our destruction. When he hurls threats and taunts our way.
In the end – he will come to nothing because we are not alone in the battle.
👉 The Lord knows how to rescue the godly from trials, and how to keep the unrighteous under punishment until the day of judgement. 2 Peter 2:9
