When death is swallowed up, I will wipe every tear from your face.
Isaiah 25:8 (WEB)
He has swallowed up death forever!
The Lord Yahweh will wipe away tears from off all faces.
He will take the reproach of his people away from off all the earth,
for Yahweh has spoken it.
As followers of Christ, we have an amazing hope. The hope of eternal life and the hope that one day we will see our God and Father face to face. On that day, when death is swallowed up, He will wipe every tear away from our face.
Today's promise is also spoken of in Revelation 21:4 which says.... ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” (NIV)
My prayer today is that we would all be strengthened with the hope that we have in Christ. No matter how difficult your circumstances, no matter how hopeless your situation, may divine hope flood your heart so that you would know that one day God will wipe away every tear from your eyes and take away all of the pain that you suffered on this earth.
I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit. (NLT)
