There are times in our walk with God that it seems like we are in a vicious cycle of ending up in one predicament after another only for God to deliver us and find ourselves in another predicament. This is what was going on with the Israelites in this chapter of Isaiah. They were in captivity once again and crying out to God for His help and losing faith. God began asking two questions. Have you not known? Have you not heard? God was reminding the Israelites of who He was and what He is capable of doing. These are the moments in our lives that strengthens our faith and encourages us to put our trust in God; knowing if He did it back then He can do it again.
The enemy will use people, problems and predicaments to keep you from your potential, possibilities and your promise. It’s in the season of isolation that God gives revelation for your destination. God said in Psalm 46 “Be still and know that I am God”. I believe as Christians we spend too much time trying to figure it out and should just faith it out. The text says God’s understanding is unsearchable. Isaiah 55:8 says “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord. Don’t focus on the problems, but rather His promise. This is where we draw our strength from in knowing that God has a plan beyond our current pain. It’s good news to know that our current location or situation is not our final destination. The text says in verse 31 “but those who wait on the Lord, shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles”. God said I have equipped you as a believer to rise above your situations and distractions. Family, it’s impossible to reach new levels and expect eagle blessings while hanging with peacocks, turkeys and chickens. Let’s keep growing!
