I pray that you are standing firm in life. There are times when we feel as if God has turned his back. Some may even feel like as if he doesn’t even like them. I find myself thinking those are the most powerful spirits being held down.
The ones he loves the most has it hard, so stand strong, the one who loves you always finds a way for restoration.

Isaiah Chapter 3
Judgement on Jerusalem and Judah
Isaiah continues from chapter 2 saying; the almighty Lord is about to take supply and support from Jerusalem and Judah, which includes Food, water, soldiers, judges, prophets, soothsayer, elders, counselors, craft men, clever encounters, and honorable men.
The Lord says; he will make boys the officials, children will direct them. People will oppress each other, man against man, neighbor against neighbor, the young will rise up against the old, the base against the honorable.
A man will forcibly get his brother at his father’s house, and tell him that he is in charge of the disaster, and he will cry that he can’t fix it. He will say; he has no food or clothes, he will beg not to be put in charge.
Jerusalem will stagger and Judah will fall, they will speak and do things against God. Defying his glorious presence. They parade around not even trying to hide their sin. Misery to them, they brought disaster to themselves.
Let the righteous know they will be okay, they will enjoy the fruits of their deeds. Misery to the wicked! Disaster is on them they will be paid back for what their hands have done. Young people oppress my people, women rule over them, my people your guides lead you away, then turn you from your path.
The Lord says; The women of Zion are arrogant, walking around proud of themselves. Worried about their gold, hair, and face. The Lord says; he will bring sores on their on their heads and make them bald.
In that day the Lord will take their treasure of beauty enhancers.
Amen! This really has me thinking and it convicted me a bit, we can not walk around here more concerned about what we have and how to get more to make ourselves look good searching for praise from others, even wanting some to envy them and then all about God. Put God before all that other stuff, he is the reason you were able to get it, he is the reason for your beauty.
The Lord says; Instead of sweet smells you’ll stink, instead of a sash you will have a rope, instead of long pretty hair, you will be bald, instead of nice clothes you will have turn rags, and instead of beauty, you will be branding. Your men will fall by the sword, our warriors in battle.
The gates of zion will be in grief and mourn empty and deserted. She shall sit on the gound
When we are so self centered, God has a way of humbling us. take the moment to chin check your spirit. . I know I did. It just makes sense that we stand with the righteous. I don’t want any grief, so I rather the Lord to just go on a head and deal with that for me. I will walk by faith.
Now for the most Important part, if you are looking to build your foundation in faith, you can Google, download a free bible app, or turn your bible to Romans chapter 10:9 and confess with our mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead then you shall be saved. Begin to build your foundation of faith with bible study, fellowship, worship and prayer. Let’s get into the word!
