The LORD will surely comfort Zion and will look with compassion on all her ruins; he will make her deserts like Eden, her wastelands like the garden of the LORD. Joy and gladness will be found in her, thanksgiving and the sound of singing.

– Isaiah 51:3 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org

God is in the business of rebuilding lives. Do you feel like a desert? God can turn your wilderness into a garden. He can turn your despair into joy and gladness. How? Isaiah was dealing with a people who had lost touch with their Creator, so they turned to created things to get their sense of worth and significance. Our despair comes in when we look to our job or people to satisfy us. Look to the Lord, who can fill your soul with the sound of singing in the midst of your wasteland.
