Strengthen the feeble hands, steady the knees that give way; say to those with fearful hearts, “Be strong, do not fear; your God will come, he will come with vengeance; with divine retribution he will come to save you.” – Isaiah 35:3-4
In the midst of a prior description of a wasteland and a coming prophecy of war and sickness, Isaiah speaks words of encouragement to the people of God. This still speaks to us today. You may look at your past and see a wasted life. You may look toward the future and all you see is doom. But take hold of another reality in the midst of your suffering: God will come to save you! So don’t give up. Be strong. Do not fear. God was faithful in Isaiah’s day, He will be faithful today.
