ISAIAH 30

Key Verse: V15 “For thus saith the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel; In returning and rest shall ye be saved; in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength: and ye would not.”

Are you tired, weary and worn? Have you been working hard and getting little results and appreciation? Isaiah, the prophet of God, warned the people that they worked hard but for all the wrong reasons. They had looked to Egypt for wisdom and strength instead of looking to God. The Egypt in today’s context is the wisdom of the world. Have you been listening to what the wisdom of the world, the wise sayings of great men, instead of listening to the wisdom of God’s Word?

1.  Submit to God 

V15 “For thus saith the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel: In returning and rest shall ye be saved;….”

God warned His people that if they desire strength from God, they must submit to Him.
The word returning means repenting. God is the Holy One of Israel and He demands holiness in His people.  Nothing we do will amount much if we do not repent of our sins and submit to God.

2.  Silence before God

V15 “For this saith the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel; In returning and rest shall ye be saved; in quietness….”

God warned His people that if they desire strength from God, they must be silent before Him. In this busy and noisy world, it is time that God’s people take the necessary rest and be quiet before God so that we can hear His still small voice of the Word of God.

1 Kings 19:12 “And after the earthquake a fire; but the Lord was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice.”

3.  Surrender to God   

V15 “For thus saith the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel; In returning and rest shall ye be saved; in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength: and ye would not.”

God warned His people that if they desire strength from God, they must surrender to His will. Once we surrender to God’s will, our self confidence shall be replaced by our confidence in God. It is when we empty ourselves then are we strong in God.

2 Corinthians 12:10 “Therefore I take pleasure infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.”

Food For Thought

For when I weak then am I strong.
