Isaiah chapter 26 was written as a song of praise to our heavenly Father. It was to be in response to His deliverance of the Jews. It exclaims the trust that they had in God and His power to save them from their enemies. The appreciation of the saved can be seen in these words. “With my soul I have desired You in the night, Yes, by my spirit within me I will seek You early; For when Your judgments are in the earth, The inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness.” (Isaiah 26:9) The seeking Him in the night and early in the morning means their desire to serve Him was constant. These are words that we should repeat in our daily lives as well. We may not have been saved from a physical conflict, but we can be saved from something more deadly, our conflict with sin.
