The night before I went into the hospital (for my stroke), when we knew something was going on but didn’t know what yet, right before bed, I asked the Lord to give me some verses. I do this pretty much every night, but not always. Usually, I feel led to a Psalm or something, but that night Isaiah 10:24-27 was very clear in my spirit.
“Therefore thus says the Lord GOD of hosts, “O My people who dwell in Zion, do not fear the Assyrian who strikes you with the rod and lifts up his staff against you, the way Egypt did. For in a very little while My indignation against you will be spent and My anger will be directed to their destruction.” The LORD of hosts will arouse a scourge against him like the slaughter of Midian at the rock of Oreb; and His staff will be over the sea and He will lift it up the way He did in Egypt. So it will be in that day, that his burden will be removed from your shoulders and his yoke from your neck, and the yoke will be broken because of fatness.”
