“But in that coming day no weapon turned against you will succeed. You will silence every voice raised up to accuse you. These benefits are enjoyed by the servants of the Lord; their vindication will come from me. I, the Lord, have spoken!” (Isaiah 54:17 NLT)
Hello family, the above scripture is one of the most half quoted scriptures in the bible. All too often the first half is quoted but “These benefits are enjoyed by the servants of the Lord; their vindication will come from me. I, the Lord, have spoken!” is left off. This scripture is one piece of a bigger masterpiece! There is so much more to be applied, in order to fully appreciate verse 17 we must start at Isaiah 54:1. So get comfortable buckle you seatbelts and keep your hands and feet in the vehicle at all times! Let’s dig in!
Read Isaiah 54:1-8
“Sing, O childless woman, you who have never given birth! Break into loud and joyful song, O Jerusalem, you who have never been in labor. For the desolate woman now has more children than the woman who lives with her husband,” says the Lord. “Enlarge your house; build an addition. Spread out your home, and spare no expense! For you will soon be bursting at the seams. Your descendants will occupy other nations and resettle the ruined cities.” Israel was being punished because they strayed from God and He wanted them to see the error of their ways. God is using Isaiah to bring them a message of hope and redemption. God is calling Israel back, He encourages them to come back and follow Him! God will show us what will happen when we submit to Him. He is saying you have gone through this time of discipline, I want you to follow me! You will benefit greatly, Come Back Home!
Tomorrow Verses 9-10
Much Love & God Bless
