Devotion for the Second Thursday in Advent

Isaiah 13:9-11 (ESV)

9 Behold, the day of the Lord comes, cruel, with wrath and fierce anger, to make the land a desolation and to destroy its sinners from it. 10 For the stars of the heavens and their constellations will not give their light; the sun will be dark at its rising, and the moon will not shed its light. 11 I will punish the world for its evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; I will put an end to the pomp of the arrogant, and lay low the pompous pride of the ruthless.

Heavenly Father, You have warned us in Your Word of the awful destruction that awaits those who are not saved. Cleanse our hearts, purify our actions, clothe in Your righteousness, and forgive us for our sins and iniquities so we are not destroyed when Jesus returns in glory. In His name. Amen.
