The whole reason the nation of Judah was seeking the help of Egypt was because they longed for someone to save them from the looming attack of the Assyrians. But sadly, they never seemed to think about taking their problem to God. Maybe it was because they knew He would require them to change their ways. He would demand that they give up their sinful lifestyles and begin living as who they were supposed to be: The chosen people of God. So, when trouble came their way, they looked for a savior, but they refused to consider God. In a way, they were looking for someone to save them from God, because the Assyrians had been sent by Him for the express purpose of punishing the people of Judah. But God is in the salvation business. He would ultimately save Judah from the threat of Assyrian invasion. And, even after Judah fell the Babylonians, God would save them from captivity and return them to the land of Canaan. In Isaiah 33:1-6, Isaiah begs God to extend mercy to the people of Judah. He longs for God to save them from themselves. And, one day, God will. His Son will save them and make it possible for them to be restored to a right relationship with their heavenly Father.
