I lift up my eyes – Isaiah 54:11-17 Hear God

Isaiah 54:11-17 – Hear God

1“Afflicted city, lashed by storms and not comforted,     I will rebuild you with stones of turquoise,[a]     your foundations with lapis lazuli. 12 I will make your battlements of rubies,     your gates of sparkling jewels,     and all your walls of precious stones. 13 All your children will be taught by the Lord,     and great will be their peace. 14 In righteousness you will be established: Tyranny will be far from you;     you will have nothing to fear. Terror will be far removed;     it will not come near you. 15 If anyone does attack you, it will not be my doing;     whoever attacks you will surrender to you.

16 “See, it is I who created the blacksmith     who fans the coals into flame     and forges a weapon fit for its work. And it is I who have created the destroyer to wreak havoc; 17     no weapon forged against you will prevail,     and you will refute every tongue that accuses you. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord,     and this is their vindication from me,” declares the Lord.

Extracts from Matthew Henry’s  Concise Commentary

Let the people of God, when afflicted and tossed, think they hear God speaking comfortably to them by these words, taking notice of their griefs and fears. The church is all glorious when full of the knowledge of God; for none teaches like him. It is a promise of the teaching and gifts  of the Holy Spirit. All that are taught of God are taught to love one another. This seems to relate especially to the glorious times to succeed the tribulations of the church. Holiness, more than any thing, is the beauty of the church. God promises protection. There shall be no fears within; there shall be no fightings without. Military men value themselves on their splendid titles, but God calls them, “Wasters made to destroy,” for they make wasting and destruction their business. He created them, therefore he will serve his own designs by them. The day is coming when God will reckon with wicked men for their hard speeches, Jude 1:15. Security and final victory are the heritage of each faithful servant of the Lord. The righteousness by which they are justified, and the grace by which they are sanctified, are the gift of God, and the effect of his special love. Let us beseech him to sanctify our souls, and to employ us in his service.
