God makes promises. But, unlike man, God keeps His promises. In fact, Numbers 23:19 states, “God is not a man, so he does not lie. He is not human, so he does not change his mind. Has he ever spoken and failed to act? Has he ever promised and not carried it through?” And in Isaiah 11:11-16, we are going to see God remind His covenant people just how faithful He is going to be regarding His promises to them. While things may have looked dim from their perspective, God knew the future and was letting them know that He had a plan in place for them. He would not forget them. He would not permanently abandon them. In fact, He would one day restore a remnant of them to a right relationship with Himself. And He would do it by keeping the very promise He made to King David that there would one day be a permanent heir to his throne. God has promised that there will be a ruler, a Son of David, to sit on the throne of David. He has also promised a remnant of God’s people will one day rule alongside the Son of David is a restored Kingdom of Israel. And what God promises, He always brings about.
