The Desire of our Hearts

There are so many wonderful truths in just this one chapter of the scriptures...

The promise of peace for the steadfast...
Isaiah 26:3 You will keep in perfect peace
him whose mind is steadfast,
because he trusts in you.

It is not our glory, but it is God's glory proclaimed among the nations that we desire. His renown.
8 Yes, LORD, walking in the way of your laws,
we wait for you;
your name and renown
are the desire of our hearts.

Even in the midst of chastisement, we should seek the Lord...
16 LORD, they came to you in their distress;
when you disciplined them,
they could barely whisper a prayer.

Another one of these great Old Testament passages that point to the Resurrection of the Saints...
19 But your dead will live;
their bodies will rise.
You who dwell in the dust,
wake up and shout for joy.
Your dew is like the dew of the morning;
the earth will give birth to her dead.
