ISAIAH 50

Key Verse: Isaiah 50:4 “The Lord God hath given me the tongue of the learned, that I should know who to speak a word in season to him that is weary: he wakeneth morning by morning, he wakeneth mine ear to hear as the learned.”

Who was the prophet Isaiah referring to when he wrote this passage? The Lord Jesus Christ.

1.  The Lord will teach you

V4 “The Lord God hath given me the tongue of the learned, that I should know who to speak a word in season to him that is weary: he wakeneth morning by morning, he wakeneth mine ear to hear as the learned.”

What was Jesus doing while He was on earth? Jesus did not just spent His time making furniture as the son of a carpenter, but He studied the Word morning by morning, and subsequently preached and taught the Word and healed and ministered to the wearied ones. If Jesus, the Son of God, studied the Word morning by morning, how much more must you study the Word of God?

2.  The Lord will strengthen you

V7 “For the Lord God will help me; therefore shall I not be confounded: therefore have I set my face like a flint, and I know that I shall not be ashamed.”

The Lord helped Jesus to endure the betrayal of Judas, the denial of Peter, the rejection by His disciples, the shame and suffering on the cruel cross. The Lord shall also help you to endure betrayal, rejection, shame and suffering as you go through life storms.

3.  The Lord will vindicate you

V9 “Behold, the Lord God will help me; who is he that shall condemn me? Lo, they all shall wax old as a garment; the moth shall eat them up.”

The Lord vindicated Jesus by raising Him from the dead when He was condemned to die on the cross.
The Lord shall also vindicate you from false charges and accusations. It will not be easy for Christians to live a just and holy life in this unjust and unholy world, but God shall teach, strengthen and vindicate you as you go through life crises and challenges.

Prayer of the Week

God, help me to draw strength from You as I go through life crises and challenges.

Action of the Week

God, help me to help others who are going through life crises and challenges.
