Reading along with us in Isaiah & 2 Kings? Here’s today’s reading:

Isaiah 51 (ESV)

“Listen to Me, you who follow after righteousness,
You who seek the Lord:
Look to the rock from which you were hewn,
And to the hole of the pit from which you were dug.
Look to Abraham your father,
And to Sarah who bore you;
For I called him alone,
And blessed him and increased him.”

For the Lord will comfort Zion,
He will comfort all her waste places;
He will make her wilderness like Eden,
And her desert like the garden of the Lord;
Joy and gladness will be found in it,
Thanksgiving and the voice of melody....Continue Reading

  1. I am the Lord your God,
    who stirs up the sea so that its waves roar—
    the Lord of hosts is his name.
    16 And I have put my words in your mouth
    and covered you in the shadow of my hand,
    establishing the heavens
    and laying the foundations of the earth,
    and saying to Zion, ‘You are my people.'”❤️

  2. “Listen to me, you who know righteousness,
    the people in whose heart is my law;
    fear not the reproach of man,
    nor be dismayed at their revilings.
    8 For the moth will eat them up like a garment,
    and the worm will eat them like wool,
    but my righteousness will be forever,
    and my salvation to all generations.”

  3. The beauty and grace that is found in the judgement of God that falls on His people, is the restoration and blessing that follows. He will comfort Zion and look with compassion on all her ruins (the ruins that have come from His discipline, btw) and make her deserts like Eden(v3). The Israelites will see God’s justice expressed towards the heathen nations in their time but God will also bring that judgement in the end as well.

    So therefore, God’s people can be strong! God will be faithful to them as He was to those in the past and will accomplish similar works as He accomplished for the Jews of old. Although He exiled them to foreign lands, He will bring them back to the promised land. And so they can wait and have confidence in God’s salvation as they are suffering the implications of His discipline. How great is that?

    See, God will take the cup of wrath that the Israelites have suffered with and place it in the hands of their enemies. This is part of the comfort the sovereign Lord would like to communicate to His people……
