"For thus said the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel, 'In returning and rest you shall be saved; in quietness and in trust shall be your strength.' But you were unwilling..." ‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭30:15‬ The people of Isaiah’s day were facing national disaster. They had turned away from God and God’s judgment was about to fall on Israel. The Assyrians, an empire known for their ruthlessness and with an unstoppable army, were about to overwhelm the Northern Kingdom of Israel and completely destroy it forever. Then they turned on the Southern Kingdom of Judah with overwhelming force. The people of Judah were desperately looking for a way to save their nation. God gave them the answer through His faithful prophet, Isaiah: "In returning and rest you shall be saved; in quietness and in trust shall be your strength." Most of the people didn’t want to hear that answer. They wanted something more concrete. They wanted the government to come up with a solution; maybe a military alliance with Egypt. But that was a superficial cure that only attempted to treat the symptoms, the natural result of their rebellion. The real solution was to return to the Lord and rest in Him. Sound familiar? Will we listen and respond? Or will we keep looking for a superficial solution? Lord Jesus, keep our eyes on You. Return our hearts to You. Give us rest in You once again. Bring the revival we need, beginning with me. Amen.
