Isaiah 33-34

Daily Devotional from Isaiah 33--

Verse 22 (NKJV)
For the Lord is our Judge, the Lord is our Lawgiver, the Lord is our King; He will save us.
The fear of tyranny has prompted nations to devise an elaborate system of checks and balances. We call it separation of powers. If we keep absolute power out of the hands of one, corruption will have a harder time taking root.
But I can't help but smile when I read verse 33, because there’s no need to separate His power. Only an all wise and benevolent Father can be trusted with such freedom. No need to strap him with checks and balances. To separate his powers would only compromise his mission.  
With man, we need to ensure accountability. But, with the Lord, it's just the opposite. Remove the restrictions, cut the constraints, and let him have the unbridled rights to save his people.
