8 he will swallow up death forever.
The Sovereign LORD will wipe away the tears
from all faces;
he will remove the disgrace of his people
from all the earth.
The LORD has spoken.
9 In that day they will say,
"Surely this is our God;
we trusted in him, and he saved us.
This is the LORD, we trusted in him;
let us rejoice and be glad in his salvation."
I've heard people complain that some are so heavenly minded they are no earthly good. But more often I think we are so earthly minded that we are no heavenly good. There is coming a day when death shall die, a day when God shall wipe away all tears. That day will be a glorious day for the people of faith. The people who believed that God would save them.
Lord help me to trust you in all things that I can rejoice in that day.
