He Will Swallow Up Death In Victory
Here is your Daily Devotional Prayer for November 6, 2016 brought to you by The Plough
On this mountain he will destroy the shroud that enfolds all peoples, the sheet that covers all nations; he will swallow up death forever. The Sovereign Lord will wipe away the tears from all faces; he will remove his people’s disgrace from all the earth. The Lord has spoken.
Lord our God, your kingdom is coming. Your help reaches us. However much we must suffer, we look to you, for you have given us your promise. You have promised that all shall go well with us. You have promised that while still on earth your people may have strength to trust in you and wait for you in patience and joy. So lay your hands upon us, O Lord our God, and let your redeeming strength be revealed in us. You know all our needs. You see into each heart and know how to help, as you have promised. Bless us and help us, and may your name be honored among us. May your kingdom come, and your will be done on earth as in heaven. Amen.
Daily Commentary: Jesus conquered death and we are thankful for His victory. Since sin has left us in death, Jesus has overcome that death and taken the fear of death away. Once He has swallowed up death in victory, we can now come to the banquet and feast on His love.
Do you appreciate what Jesus has done for you?
Death is a tyrant but we don’t have to fear it anymore. Why? Our faith in Jesus has been rewarded. He has brought us out of our own exodus and brought us on the pathway to heaven.
According to Matthew Henry, “Those that mourn for sin shall be comforted. Those who suffer for Christ shall have consolations. But in the joys of heaven, and not short of them, will fully be brought to pass this saying, God shall wipe away all tears.” This is why our hope has been a gift that continues to pay off with the end result being our eternal salvation.
