If I were able to ask you if you believed God to be powerful, you would likely respond with an enthusiastic, “Yes!” But the truth is, there have been plenty of times in your life when you doubted the power of God. And, more than likely, your assessment was based on your circumstances. When things take a turn for the worst, we tend to doubt God’s power or question His love. But God would have us remember that His love never wavers and His power never diminishes. And that is the message He tried to convey to the people of Judah as recorded in Isaiah 51:1-15. In these verses, God addresses a small remnant of His faithful followers. In all of Judah, there was only a handful of those who pursued righteousness and remained true to God. And God wanted them to know that they could trust Him, in spite of all that was going on around them. He knew that they were beginning to have their doubts. They were looking around and starting to question whether God was going to come through for them. And God wanted them to know that His righteousness was drawing near. They could count on it. It may not be in their lifetime, but they could rest in the knowledge that God never abandons His own.
