May 9, 2021 – Isaiah 22-28

Isaiah has been addressing the nations but, of course, Judah and Jerusalem are never far from his mind. And so, he now turns to them, and tells them that their strong men and their strong walls will be brought down. Then, back to the nations, beginning with Tyre (whose riches were legion), and then a word to the whole earth. No one will escape God’s attention and judgment: “And it shall be, as with the people, so with the priest; as with the slave, so with his master; as with the maid, so with her mistress; as with the buyer, so with the seller” (24:2) and so on.


Such terrible judgment! But then: “You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you. Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord God is an everlasting rock” (26:3,4). In the midst of trouble, trust in the Lord! Yes! And the Lord provides shelter for those who look to him: “Come, my people, enter your chambers and shut your doors behind you; hide yourselves for a little while until the fury has passed by” (26:20). Always, we who trust in the Lord have a resting place!


I hear my Savior saying,

“Come, lean upon My breast;”

I hear Him sweetly saying.

“And I will give thee rest.” –James M. Kirk
