Isaiah Day 82 - At Last


Is it not yet a very little while
Till Lebanon shall be turned into a fruitful field,
And the fruitful field be esteemed as a forest?
18 In that day the deaf shall hear the words of the book,
And the eyes of the blind shall see out of obscurity and out of darkness.
19 The humble also shall increase their joy in the Lord,
And the poor among men shall rejoice
In the Holy One of Israel.
20 For the terrible one is brought to nothing,
The scornful one is consumed,
And all who watch for iniquity are cut off—
21 Who make a man an offender by a word,
And lay a snare for him who reproves in the gate,
And turn aside the just by empty words.

22 Therefore thus says the Lord, who redeemed Abraham, concerning the house of Jacob:

“Jacob shall not now be ashamed,
Nor shall his face now grow pale;
23 But when he sees his children,
The work of My hands, in his midst,
They will hallow My name,
And hallow the Holy One of Jacob,
And fear the God of Israel.
24 These also who erred in spirit will come to understanding,
And those who complained will learn doctrine.”

I don't think this needs much explanation. Better days are coming. I do however want to point out one thing. God doesn't make promises without something tangible to hold onto. He isn't saying "Things will get better" with no evidence to back up His claims.

He who redeemed Abram says to Jacob... Do you see it? Do you know who Abram was? He was the son of idol worshippers. He was born and raised in paganism. God made him a promise, he chose to believe it and the rest is history. From a barren couple past the age of child bearing Isaac came. Isaac is the living proof that God can and does keep impossible promises. What was Abraham redeemed from? Unbelief? Time after time his faith wavered, so much so that near the end he literally laughed at God but God wasn't finished yet. Isaac came.

He who redeemed Abraham says to you and I "I have promises for you too. The Story ends well. It ends gloriously. Some day you will look up and say 'This is our God. We have waited for Him and He will save us'. There will be times when you will want to give up on My promises. You may even laugh at Me. You might make a mess like Abraham did trying to fulfill My words on your own. No matter what comes if you stubbornly return to Me and trust Me anew, you will see every promise kept." - God
