The last verse of the following text from Isaiah is where I have parked my hope at this moment in history, “So he himself stepped in to save them with his strong arm.”
For many who have not considered the intervening aspect of God’s strong arm in human affairs, injustice and despair seem to be increasing with no hope in sight. They have forgotten it will be the Lord who has the last word.
Do all God has asked you to today for righteousness sake. Be faithful in all things, but never forget that real and abiding change only comes when God steps in and redirects the course of history for His purposes and His glory.
“Our courts oppose the righteous,
and justice is nowhere to be found.
Truth stumbles in the streets,
and honesty has been outlawed.
Yes, truth is gone,
and anyone who renounces evil is attacked.
The Lord looked and was displeased
to find there was no justice.
He was amazed to see that no one intervened
to help the oppressed.
So, he himself stepped in to save them with his strong arm,
and his justice sustained him” (Isaiah 59:14-16).
