The STRess of it all:
When God gave Isaiah this to write, the Israelites were at an all time low. The Northern Kingdom had been taken into captivity. And Judah, where Isaiah was living, had the Assyrian Empire to contend with. The Assyrians were what ISIS was to the Kurds, Iraqis and the rest of the middle eastern area surrounding them.
God was telling the people of Judah, not to worry about the Assyrian Kingdom. God tried telling the Northern Tribes to come back to Him, but their leadership was so corrupt, that the Kings of the Northern Kingdom of Israel, were like the leadership we have today in America in some states.
Some of our leaders have forgotten God, kicked the Bible out of schools and public areas. Their tragic end will be the same as those Kings who went against God’s prophets & faithful.
Today we have the same problem. The Northern Kingdom of the US, New England has been devastated by their Covid-19 virus. But instead of reaching out to God for protection, they scoff at Him, sounding off their pride by saying that God has nothing to do with this virus being stopped. These same arrogant leaders, like the kings of old in the 10 Northern tribes, don’t want to have anything to do with the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Even though many a manuscript from the founding at Plymouth Rock to the Constitution, have the Holy Hand of Providence written all over them.
The Feeling of despair:
Today, many of you are afraid:
—Of the future.
—Of the virus.
—Of the economy.
—Of dying from this horrible virus.
I want to encourage you, like the LORD did to the people of Judah during Isaiah’s time.
Though the enemy hordes be at your doorstep, not a single one of them will set foot inside.
The virus may have killed a percentage of people, but the overall percentage of people who have recovered is extraordinary.
Take it from someone who had cancer, my faith is in the LORD, He healed me. But whether He healed me or not, my faith will be that either here or There, I will be healed.
If you don’t know God in a personal way, or you want to know more about the God of the Bible, I ask you to have your questions answered. God loves you infinitely, and wonderfully. God is our Heavenly Daddy. He is not there to punish anyone that comes to Him, asking for forgiveness. He, like a loving daddy, or papa, will wrap His spiritual arms around you, engulfing you in love, comfort and peace.
Once you make a decision to commit to changing through the power of His Spirit, your problems will not be fatal, or drastic. Yes they will still be there, but the end game is heaven.
We no longer have to worry about this life, even though we will still be living here. Because our goal is not to finish our journey here. It is to live our lives as if we are physically walking with our Heavenly Dad, always being guided by His loving advice.
Once you figure out that no weapon that is forged against you will take effect or hurt you eternally, the rest of your life will make sense.
