Proverbs 14:12 reads, “There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way to death.” Yet, ever since the fall, mankind has chosen to go his own way, ignoring the path prescribed to him by God. Even the people of Judah and Israel, the chosen people of God, had a difficult time staying on the path God had set out for them. He had called them to walk in all His ways, but they tended to wander off the path and take detours that landed them in hot water with God. So, in Isaiah 35:1-10, the prophet reveals some exciting news for the people of Judah. In spite of their wandering ways, God will bring them back and place them on His way of Godliness. There will be a future time of restoration and renewal that will impact not only the people of God, but the entire planet. God will strengthen the hands of the weak, make firm the knees of the feeble, open the eyes of the blind, and restore to the mute the ability to speak. In short, God will put His chosen people back on the path He originally planned for them. He will seek them in their lostness and restore them to the Way of Holiness, where they will make their way back to Him and experience true gladness and joy.
