God's Glory

 


LECTIO:

Isaiah 66: 18-21

Thus says the LORD:
I know their works and their thoughts,
and I come to gather nations of every language;
they shall come and see my glory.
I will set a sign among them;
from them I will send fugitives to the nations:
to Tarshish, Put and Lud, Mosoch, Tubal and Javan,
to the distant coastlands
that have never heard of my fame, or seen my glory;
and they shall proclaim my glory among the nations.
They shall bring all your brothers and sisters from all the nations
as an offering to the LORD,
on horses and in chariots, in carts, upon mules and dromedaries,
to Jerusalem, my holy mountain, says the LORD,
just as the Israelites bring their offering
to the house of the LORD in clean vessels.
Some of these I will take as priests and Levites, says the LORD.

STUDIUM:

The theme of this passage is carried throughout all of Isaiah:
 God is Lord of all.  Here the exiles from Babylon are on their
way to Jerusalem.  There they will see the Lord's glory.  And from
there to other nations.

MEDITATIO:

The prophet is picturing the future.  The Lord's glory will be proclaimed
to other nations.

ORATIO:

Lord, You know my thoughts then You know I only want to please You.  
Guide me.

CONTEMPLATIO:

I want to rest in Your Glory, Lord.

RESOLUTIO:

The Lord knows how all people think and act.  His divine plans will come to 
fruition.  I must yield to His Will.
