For Reading and Meditation:     Isaiah 42:10-17

We are ready now to close in on our subject and contemplate as far as we are able the nature and character of the God we worship.

The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows His handiwork. § By the word of the Lord the heavens were made, and all the host of them by the breath of His mouth. . . .
