Chapter 46, of Isaiah contains a prophecy of the taking of Babylon by Cyrus, and of the deliverance of the Jews; who are encouraged to expect the divine protection, and a continuance of it; are dissuade from idolatry and directed to look to the Lord alone for righteousness and salvation. The taking of Babylon is signified by the demolition of its idols, which become the plunder of the enemy, and by the carrying of the inhabitants of it captive, God, by the prophet here, designing shortly to deliver them out of their captivity, prepared them for that deliverance by possessing them with a detestation of idols and with a believing confidence in God, even their own God. Bel bows down; Nebo stoops; their idols are on beasts and livestock; these things you carry are borne as burdens on weary beasts.

It reads in Isaiah 46, Bel bows down, Nebo stoops low; their idols are borne by beasts of burden. The images that are carried about are burdensome, a burden for the weary. They stoop and bow down together; unable to rescue the burden, they themselves go off into captivity. “Listen to me, you descendants of Jacob all the remnant of the people of Israel, you whom I have upheld since your birth, and have carried since you were born. Even to your old age and gray hairs, I am he, I am he who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you. “With whom will you compare me or count me equal? To whom will you liken me that we may be compared? Some pour out gold from their bags and weigh out silver on the scales; they hire a goldsmith to make it into a god, and they bow down and worship it. They lift it to their shoulders and carry it; they set it up in its place, and there it stands. From that spot it cannot move. Even though someone cries out to it, it cannot answer; it cannot save them from their troubles. “Remember this, keep it in mind, take it to heart, you rebels. Remember the former things, those of long ago; I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like me. I make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is still to come. I say, ‘My purpose will stand, and I will do all that I please.’ From the east I summon a bird of prey; from a far-off land, a man to fulfill my purpose. What I have said that I will bring about; what I have planned, that I will do. Listen to me, you stubborn-hearted, you who are now far from my righteousness. I am bringing my righteousness near; it is not far away; and my salvation will not be delayed. I will grant salvation to Zion, my splendor to Israel.
“We need to live one day at a time, thanking and praising God for life in all things. God goes before us and behind us. ‘The LORD your God who goes before you will Himself fight on your behalf… Deuteronomy 1:30
I used to walk with my children. The twins had to hold on to my back pockets while I walked. While I pushed the twin carriage with my daughter and other son. So, if the twins let go of my pocket. Both had to hold on to the carriage in front of me. That was annoying. It was punishing me, but they were too young to realize this. They thought it was their punishment. But it worked. It is like God I am sure He feel annoyed when we make it tough on Him. But He doesn’t let us know this. He just guides us, and we chose to hold on right or hold on to wrong. God’s counsel, protections, promises and truths stands. This is why use the bible as a guide to learn and know for sure.
It reads in Jeremiah 29:11, NIV, For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord. They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.
It reads in Psalm 16:5 NIV, Lord, you alone are my portion and my cup; you make my lot secure.
God ability holds our future and proves His authority of God’s Word.

“Live near to God, and so all things will appear to you little in comparison to eternal realities.”
