ISAIAH 59

Key Verse: Isaiah 59:2 “But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid His face from you, that He will not hear.”

1.  God’s Hand

V1 “Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; ..."

God is the Creator of this entire universe. He is the Maker of all living creatures as well as the entire creation of this world. Everything is created and made by God.

Genesis 18:14 “Is any thing too hard for the Lord? At the time appointed I will return unto thee, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son.”

God encouraged and assured Abraham after many years of waiting for his first child that He shall provide him and his wife, Sarah, with a son. Indeed, God can save mankind and He can do all things and nothing is impossible with Him.

2.  God’s Ear

V1 “… neither His ear heavy, that it cannot hear:”

God loves, cares and knows all your needs. When you ask and pray to God, He shall answer you and provide all your needs.

Matthew 7:7 “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; …”

3.  Man’s Sins

V2 “But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid His face from you, that He will not hear.”

God’s hand is not short nor his ear heavy that they cannot do or hear, but it is because your sins have separated you from God.

Matthew 27:46 “And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? That is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?”

Even God hid His face and did not answer His Son’s prayers because Jesus bore the sins of the entire human race!
 
Psalm 66:18 “If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me:”

Indeed, it is not that the Lord cannot hear your prayers but He will not hear because of your iniquities or sins in your hearts.
